We used tissue paper and PVA glue to make these flame sculptures. We thought about warm, fiery colours. We had great fun and thought carefully about how to use the hottest colours in the middle of the flame. Now we have to wait for our sculptures to dry out and set. Then we can apply the finishing coat and display them.
We are continuing our history lessons learning about The Great Fire of London. How many facts can you remember children?
We have been painting in the style of Anthony Frost. How has he used his paint brush? Do the shapes remind you of anything?
We were inspired by the work of Anthony Frost and we used his techniques to paint flickering flames illuminating the London sky. Then we carefully cut out silhouettes of buildings. Our pictures represented The Great Fire of London in 1666. Have a look at our work. We feel very proud!
Happy New Year to you all! We have only been back just over a week but we have managed to fit in lots of creative art work already! Have a look at our drawings and paintings of flames. They remind us of the Great Fire of London.
Thank you all for your thoughtful and generous cards and gifts. We have had a wonderful term and the children are gaining independence and confidence rapidly. Have a peaceful and relaxing holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in 2019!!
Lots of our class go to Ukulele Club with Mr Smith each week. Today they proudly showed off their musical skills to the rest of the class. Well done children! It looks really tricky holding down a string with one hand and strumming with the other! I wonder if you will learn another instrument in KS2?
This week 2D performed our Nativity story - Gabriel's Big Break. We worked extremely hard and it was VERY tricky! There was a lot to remember and so many people were watching! Even though some of us felt nervous we tried our best and used BIG voices and remembered when to speak and where to stand. We were resilient, brave and independent. I am sure you agree with me grown ups - the children should be EXTREMELY proud of themselves! Have a look at our writing about the performance.....
As part of our Healthy Me topic in Science, the school cook came to our class. We asked her questions to find out all about her job. This is what we learnt:
As you know we have been learning about whirling hurricanes, swirling blizzards, crashing thunder and floods that are deep enough to cover up a house! This afternoon we made collage pictures to represent each type of weather. Can you guess which each picture is?
On Wednesday we all had a wonderful trip to Christchurch Park. The weather was kind to us and the rain held off! The children were VERY excited! During our visit we explored the playground and used real compasses to find out which direction we were walking in. They were very tricky to use and the arrows kept wobbling but we didn't give up! Then we collected sticks, leaves and other bit and pieces we found on the ground to make 'leaf art' pictures. We think we saw Stick Man's Family tree so some of us made Stick Men pictures too! The children all behaved beautifully and I felt very proud of them all! Well done 2D! What an exciting visit we had!
