Mayfield Church Of England Primary School

Nurturing relationships, inspiring excellence, achieving potential.

Lights, Camera, Action...........

 

We will be linking our whole school value of Creativity very closely to our learning journey this term.

"I think creationism is, in a sense, a kind of category mistake, as if the Bible were a theory like other theories. Whatever the biblical account of creation is, it's not a theory alongside theories. It's not as if the writer of Genesis or whatever sat down and said well, how am I going to explain all this... 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..."

Rowan Williams in The Guardian, 21 March 2006

We have already been very excited by our topic “Lights, Camera, Action”. During this topic we will be using animated films from the past and present to explore different ways of making animated films. We began with our journey with a trip to the cinema, but went right back to 1937 and the original Disney animation of Snow White. We will then visit; 1990 with Wallace and Gromit, as well as 2016 sampling the delights, sights, sounds and music of these fantastic films.

 

Our Day in the woods.

As always we seemed to choose another wet day for our trip to the woods! Despite a little light drizzle we had a fantastic day. The children used natural materials to explore our value of Creativity, and what it means to them. Have a look below to see some of their beautiful art work.

 

Health Week 15th May.

We are really looking forward to 'Health Week' this term and have already had the chance to sample a healthy stir fry cooked by Mr Broccoli!!

 

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to a very talented parent who helped us create our amazing display 'Our Garden' as part of our healthy eating this term.
