Turing Team ~ Remembrance Day Activities

As part of our Team Day activities in Turing, we have been combining the work of Pop Art with Remembrance activities for this time of the year.

Some children used fruit and vegetables to make poppy printing. These were in bright vibrant colours just like the Pop Art artists we had looked at. Other children designed “Pop Art Spitfires” adding vibrant colours to their work, making sure to use the colour wheels to find complimentary colours too.

Children in Turing team also had a chance to look at Pop Art lettering, often seen in the Marvel Comics too. We tried replicating this style, using remembrance words to add to this design.

Leave a comment below to let us know what you think of the designs we created!

In an important celebration assembly, children from across the school were awarded certificates for their hard work in lessons across the curriculum.

Some were awarded praise and certificates for their hard work counting in Maths, for their skills in addition and multiplication and for their diligence in never giving up and working hard with others.

Equally, some children were awarded certificates for their resilience and stickability, with tasks that were hard and needed children to persevere. One pupil had even written a letter to their teacher, asking if they could help others in the class in the role of a “classroom assistant” such was their keenness to help their classmates to improve! Another was presented with an award for stepping in at the last moment to save her class assembly after another child wasn’t available to play their part.

Starfish and Seahorse classes told the school about their work on looking after the duck eggs, as well as their visit to the local farm with Bedenham school too. They also presented their work on SuperPotato – showing us a range of their work and drawings. They explained that the evil pea had stolen their class teddy, which the children then had to use clues to save him!

They also showed us a selection of their superhero outfits, which the Starfish and Seahorses have been wearing in lessons too! They also performed a great song by the “Let’s Go Heroes” which the children sang along to as well.

A brilliant assembly, where children were very brave to speak to the whole school (and their parents) in a very busy school hall. Well done!
