Children found about the significance of Christingle for Christians, and created their own, sang a song and shared a Christian prayer. Many thanks to Rev Hamilton and Rosie Stephens for giving the children this lovely opportunity this morning.
Yarner would like to wish you a happy Christmas!
As part of our RE work we have been finding out how Hindu people celebrate Diwali and created our own Diva lamps and celebrated with songs.
The children made clay Diva pots a few weeks ago but decorated them today. They used a base coat then did finer detail using another colour and made sure it was a Rangoli style pattern that they practised on paper earlier in the week. They look amazing and very colourful!!
Willow Lantern Making
The children made pyramid willow lanterns ready for our lantern walk next week. They worked together in small groups to build up the net shape using willow and sticky tape. After this, they added special tissue paper to the frame with lots of glue!! It was great fun and very messy!!
Yarner Class are thoroughly enjoying Arts week, they have made pinch pots with Reigh Hope who is a ceramist and art student. The children enjoyed working with the clay and used a range of tools to create different effects. They also looked at how song lyrics can inspire creativity and will be performing a song with illustrations as part of our class assembly. Working with Yuli Somme a local felter, children used wool and learnt how to create felt which they wrapped around their feet to create felt slippers. The whole process was very sensory based and children enjoyed the feeling of the soggy felt on their feet and observed how this gradually changed as it formed into the shape of their feet. Trail Arts inspired them to create recycled mobiles which the children really enjoyed, they spent a lot of time threading and tying knots to create their designs.
The Year Ones had a great morning on Wednesday with Andy Bailey from Yarner Wood (Dartmoor National Park) making flags for the festival at Yarner Wood at the end of May.
As part of our 'Under The Sea' topic launch, children discovered plastic inside a fish.
