International Peace Day

On 21st September for International Peace Day, children at Charlestown made their own pinwheels. We decorated them with symbols that linked to peace. In Team 3, we made them for each other. Take a look at the ones we ended up with – we loved them! Miss Denham popped in whilst we were handing them out and loved them too – see if you can spot her! What symbol is she making? What does it represent?

Mini Andy Goldsworthy!

Today in topic we learned about the artist, Andy Goldsworthy. We looked at some of his sculptures and learned all about how he uses nature to create his work. We had so much fun creating our own and learned lots!

The Lovely Fire created by, Livia, Cole, Timi, Grace

The Beach by Savannah, Lilly-Mae, Lily, Emarai

The Moon by Ahmed, Seth, Shelby, Cameron and Ethan

The Sun by Aisosa, Mikalah, Layton, Victoria and Briar

Rory loves reading and so do we!

A new child has started at Charlestown… Rory the Lion. Rory loves reading but loves it even more when children read to him. We were so excited in Team 3 that we read him, ‘Room on the Broom.’ Highlight, copy and paste the links below into your internet web bar to¬†us read.
