Photography Competition Last week - Selfies (with a difference)
Deadline Monday 6th July – 10am
This is your last opportunity to enter the phone / tablet photography competition. The theme this week is selfies (with a difference). Use your imagination and creativity to take a selfie with a difference and send it to me at email@example.com
There are many examples of photographic Selfies in which the subject's face is obscured or covered in some way. This effect is a special feature of photography that doesn't feature so much in painting. The camera flattens three dimensional space so that something in the foreground can appear to be on the same level as something else in the background.
Using either make-up, costumes, props or objects create a Selfie with all or part of your face obscured. Be creative and have fun!
The winner in each Key Stage will win a £10 gift voucher.
If you include a person or a child who is not at Abbeywood,you will need to give permission for this.(We already have permission records for children who are currently at Abbeywood). Please include this permission in your email.
All you have to do is submit your photograph to Miss Resuggan via email on firstname.lastname@example.org by 10.00am on Monday 6th July for your chance to win!
Parents and staff are invited to submit their own entries – no prizes but we will publish some of them in DesignEd and use them as part of our lockdown exhibition. Please make it clear if a parental entry in the submission with your child’s entry.

Earlier this year we had a surprise visitor. First of all he poked his head around the door and because we were all working so quietly he ventured into our room. First of all he sat by the door and then he came right into our room.
In Willows we work hard for short periods of time. If we have worked hard and earned all of our points we get a short award time. Often we choose to play with Lego. Lego is a great toy; it encourages us to be creative and patient. Who knows: we might be the architects of the future! Another great thing about Lego is the role play games we play with the models we have created. Through our play we learn to cooperate with our friends, take turns, listen to each other and offer support. All great skills for now and the future.
Year 4 are studying the work of authors and how they research for their books. In Willows we have been studying animals. We have learnt how to classify them and all about their similarities and differences. Sharks are fascinating so we used the Ipads to research all about sharks. We are going to use this information later to write our own informative poster. We also studied tigers.
Shark Fact Files
As promised here are our informative posters. We used all of our knowledge gained from our research to produce our posters. We organised the information into 4 areas, which we chose and we chose to make our posters bright and colourful.
