Lower Foundation had so much fun on Wednesday at Brockwell Park.
They looked for signs of Spring, such as, blossom and daffodils and also discovered the different habitats that minibeasts, bugs and insects live in. They found worms, ants, snails and slugs and were very lucky to even find a stag beetle! The children then created their own minibeasts using clay and other natural resources found around them. After a busy morning, the children had fun playing and exploring in the ‘mud kitchen’ cooking delicious treats! Mud pie anyone?!
This week we have been learning about 3D shapes and their properties, in Upper Foundation. We have been discussing transport of the future and making models of possible future vehicles that the children designed. The children loved watching various clips on future transport ideas and were amazed by what is already possible!
Imaan said “I found a cube shape in the stickle bricks.”
Sofia “ I have a cuboid, it has 4 rectangular faces and 2 square faces.” Sofia was shape hunting during snack time.
Freja “My bottle is a cylinder shape.” Referring to her yogurt drink.
We would like to wish you all a very happy Mothering Sunday. We hear breakfast in bed is an excellent start to the day and we hope you love the gorgeous cards the children have made.
The children have put a lot of thought into why they love their mums, and they have especially enjoyed making their lovely cards to make their mum’s day even more special.
Year 2 have been learning about Plants and have been inspired by the work of the artist Georgia O’Keeffe. In Art we have painted flowers in the style of her work that share her vision, that people should stop and make time to admire the beauty of flowers.
On Thursday, Year 2 took part in an Explorers Workshop and went on a journey around the globe and beyond! We met some of the most iconic explorers including Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Sir Francis Drake, Edmund Hilary and Neil Armstrong. We took part in role-plays, freeze-frames, interviews and even learned a 'Sir Francis Drake' rap.
