Funky Easter Bunny Art

First Class enjoyed using black permanent markers to create different patterns for our Funky Easter Bunnies in Art.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter break!

Fairtrade

We learned about the work of Fairtrade and the importance of buying Fairtrade. We realised that we already had a lot of Fairtrade items at home. We brought these in and created a Fairtrade display. We were surprised at some products that were Fairtrade, such as jelly beans and moisturisers! We also created 'Fairtrade lunchboxes' with Fairtrade items inside them.

Respect

Our value of the month for April is respect. We have been discussing what respect means and how to show respect to others, ourselves, as well as to nature. We worked in groups to share ways to show respect in different situations. We then presented our ideas to the class. We came up with wonderful ideas of how to show respect.

Weather

We have been learning all about weather for the last few weeks. We learned about the water cycle and made our own mini water cycles in plastic lunch bags. We also made okta grids for measuring cloud cover. As well as this, we created rain gauges. We used these to measure the weather across a number of days. 

Limericks

We had great fun writing our own limericks in 2nd class. We first listened to some limericks and began to identify the rhyme and syllable pattern in the poems. We then wrote a class poem before creating our own poems in pairs. They are displayed outside our classroom if you would like to read them. We had lots of laughs writing and reading them. 

Weather Mobiles

In 2nd class, we have been learning all about weather. We made weather mobiles by collecting sticks. We then drew and decorated our favourite types of weather and attached them to create our mobile using string. We were very proud of our creations.

Sunflowers

In literacy, we read the book 'Camille and the Sunflowers' by Laurence Anholt. We learned about the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh. We then recreated Van Gogh's famous 'Sunflowers' painting. We discussed Van Gogh's use of colour and his brush style in the painting. 

History Interview

We carried out interviews with older family members to discuss their favourite games from the past. We learned that there are a lot of similar games that we still play nowadays, such as chasing, chess and snakes and ladders. There were also some games from the past that we hadn't all heard of before, such as marbles, marco polo, cowboys and indians, among others. 

We shared our interviews in groups with one another. We then discussed the interesting things that we learned and voted on our favourite games from the past. 

Heat Investigation

We carried out an investigation to see what happens to materials when they are heated. We first made predictions and we then went to the staff room to carry out the investigation. We learned that water turns to a gas when heated. We really loved seeing the chocolate and crayons melt when heated!

Waterproof Investigation

We investigated the best material to use to design a waterproof jacket. We investigated using aluminium, plastic, tinfoil, kitchen roll and blue tissue. We decided the best option was plastic.
