Leonardo da Vinci class
Hello and welcome to Leonardo da Vinci class. My name is Mrs Sarah Poulton and I am your class teacher for all subjects.
In addition to teaching and learning, I enjoy reading, walking and listening to music. When I can, I go to the theatre and cinema. My last visit was to a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest in the garden of one of the colleges in Cambridge. It was sensational, particularly as we were sitting right at the front, almost on stage with the actors.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452 -1519) was a leading artist and intellectual of the Italian Renaissance. He is best known for his paintings of 'The Last Supper' and 'Mona Lisa'. In addition, he was interested in science and inventing and drew many detailed sketches which were never tested including a flying machine!
Click on the picture above to find out more about this amazing man. He has been chosen to be our class hero because he demonstrates many of the qualities or 7 R's we value here at Wyton Primary school including resourcefulness and resilience.

We are continuing to read Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver. The story is set 6,000 years ago in Stone Age Britain and follows the adventures of a young boy, Torak and his friendship with a young orphaned wolf cub. The children have been finding lovely examples of figurative language in this rich and varied text.
