Parents at Brigstock were up early and queuing through the door to get a glimpse at some of the amazing work on display at the Brigstock Museum – open for one day only!
Children from Reception have focused on Monsters this term and have used stories like ‘Not Now Bernard’ and ‘The Gruffalo’ to create their own monsters with ‘razor-sharp claws’ and ‘slimy, black tongues’.
Year 1 have been learning about Toys and the local area and made their own junk model buildings and mechanical toys. Year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London, linked to the Tudor and Stuart era, as well as famous London landmarks and have produced some stunning art and DT work.
KS2 have also been very busy since September producing some exceptional work on a wide array of historical and geographical topics, including the Victorians, Romans, Vikings and Greeks. Year 3 experienced a Victorian school morning which included a ‘gruel-ing’ breakfast and have made Crystal Palace dinosaur replicas with clay. In Year 4, the Romans marched into town to make traditional mosaics and coin purses. The Vikings invaded Year 5 to create dragonheads and shields and Year 6 eloquently sculpted Ancient Greek vases. So many Art and DT projects, both in school and at home, have ensured that our children will not forget all they have learned any time soon.
A big well done to all the staff for creating such a wonderful day and a big thank you to all the parents who helped children make their wonderful creations at home and for joining us in celebrating their successes.
