Camera skills

This half term in ICT we are focusing on Digital Media. Today, the children have been learning all about how to use a camera. We have discussed that it is very important to keep the strap on our wrists to make sure the camera doesn’t get damaged.

We have discussed the words flash, shutter and lens.

Gallery Exhibition

Congratulations Year 4!

It was wonderful to see The Milford Academy masks, journey Poems, portrait work and word drawings displayed in the Nottingham Contemporary!

The enthusiasm, motivation and determination everyone displayed during the project was reflected in the art work at the gallery!

The partnership project with the Nottingham Contemporary, the artists Perter and Sian and the Milford Academy has been an inspiring experience.

Well done everyone!

Hopefully pupils and family will visit the exhibition on the weekend as well!

Winter Wonders

This week the children have been learning about winter.

We bid a fond farewell to one of our children who chose to make cake and dance on her final day. She’s only moved next door to our fabulous nursery.

Here is a snapshot of our week:

Birthday girl.

There were mixed reviews on the end result.

All of our children enjoy dancing. We do so most days. It’s a fun way to improve balance and coordination.

Each of the children made a penguin.

Drop in to find your child’s penguin which are displayed alongside their personalised Inuits.

The children have been dressing in warm winter clothes.

Dressing dolls is an excellent way to improve self help skills. It also teaches children how to control their fine motor muscles, which are the small and fiddly movements where we usually use our fingers.

Our dolls have been dressed appropriately too.

Tucked up with cosy blankets.

Putting on socks.

Covering up toes.

Painting winter scenes.

Arctic creatures were frozen into ice. The children were asked how they might get them out. There was a lot of discussion. Their experiments were very closely supervised.

Here is what they came up with:

Brrrrrrrr!

Hammer time!

Finally the children poured on warm water and the creatures were free.

Making new friends.

 

Next week we will be focusing on mark making.
