This morning year 2 have been very creatively active learning about AND creating Aboriginal Art. They’ve used dot paintings and intricately created colour patterns!
Well done to the children in 1T, who have been both creatively and academically fit for life when completing this homework! The children were asked to research an event relating to any king or queen in British History and share it in anyway they wished. This homework will be entered into the Agora Partnership-wide competition. Good luck to all of those who have submitted their homework!
We carried out an investigation for our last lesson on electricity. We loved creating different circuits and we showed resilience as our circuits did not always work. We were able to become scientists as we thought about fair testing, made conclusions and found patterns.
We enjoyed some glorious weather as we began preparing for our Sports Day.
Today we explored the qualities of different materials and how they might be used to enhance our ideas. Following on from on art lesson on Roy Lichtenstein and Pop Art, we were creating our own ben day dot designs. We were allowed to use a variety of materials to see which would work best. We used compasses, pencils, bubble wrap and tooth picks to create the dots but we had to make sure the dots were accurately in a triangular design- this wasn’t easy. We enjoyed becoming artists and exploring and experimenting our ideas.
1T thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Whipsnade Zoo! We were able to see many animals from different parts of the world and we even learnt some wonderful facts about penguins and flamingos! We will be using our learning to stimulate our non-fiction writing, where we will be creating a travel journal in which we see many exotic animals. A big thank you to the PTA, who’s Rainbow Raffle subsidised the trip. What a wonderful day, we made some brilliant memories.
1M had such a lovely time at Whipsnade today seeing the animals.
Today we had a brilliant session from Jo where we looked at the correlation between physical and mental health. We looked at how our physical and mental health changes over time if we don’t look after ourselves.
Today in RE, we worked collaboratively to create a set of Shabbat items and thought about how they are used and why they are important for celebrating Shabbat. Super creative work Year 1 – well done!
We enjoyed another session from Jo. We explored what makes a good friend and what we value most in our support network.
