Christmas Card Competition
For Christmas this year, James Morris set his annual competition of designing a Christmas card. We worked really hard and sent some amazing cards to him to see. There were over 750 entries from a range of children from lots of different schools. All of your designs were amazing Hagrid Class. Well done!
In RE, we learnt all about Diwali - the Festival of Light! We spoke all about the traditions of the celebration and what happens on this special day. We learnt that during this festival, it is common for people to make colourful designs on the floor in their house, to serve as a welcoming gesture and bring good luck. These patterns are called Rangoli. We had a go at colouring in Rangoli patterns and some of us even designed our own!
Remembrance Day 2020
For Remembrance Day this year, James Morris asked schools in Sandwell to produce some art work to remember the different Poppy Day we had this year.
We all designed our own Poppy Day pictures and sent them to James Morris.
He was extremely impressed with our designs and mentioned us on his social media.
Well done everyone!
