The children used white card and paint to create a simple painting of some flowers in a vase, complete with petals and leaves.

The children worked in groups during English to complete these lovely additions to the classrooms – some adjective snakes. The children first discussed what adjectives are – words used to describe nouns or a pronoun – before coming up with a list of adjectives which would be used to describe an object like a snake. They were all given a piece of the snake with their adjective beside them, and decorated their snake accordingly.
The children have being enjoying writing their acrostic poems all year. We decided that we would be doing a display using acrostic poems for each season – here is spring. We first talked about the different things that we associate with spring and the children came up with some key words on the topic. We then looked at some examples of spring acrostic poems before the children came up with their own. We first wrote SPRING down the side of the page, and then the children had to think of a spring – related sentence starting with each letter of the word spring.
