This half term we have been learning all about the damage being done to the oceans and the animals that live there through our guided reading text 'The Sea Book'. In the book we learnt how to make our own carrier bag using an old T-shirt! So we had a go in class. We were very pleased with what we had made and to know that by using them we could help reduce the number of plastic carrier bags being used.

Light- Periscopes, by Miss Young

Year 6 mapped out the direction in which light travels (straight) in a persicope using our 4G pitch and skipping ropes to represent our mirrors angled at 45°, in order to reflect the light. We decorated our periscope nets before cutting, scoring and joining them. Finally we tested their effectiveness in seeing around corners and over tables.

Year 2: Art, by Miss Jones
Date: 12th Sep 2021 @ 5:59pm
This week, Year 2 have started learning all about Surrealism and the artist, Joan Miro. This week we focused on 'The Hunter'. The children looked carefully at this piece, commenting on the shapes and objects they could see. We then looked closer and spotted what we thought could be a human hunter. We made our own versions using pencils and markers, before creating a ombré background. We can't wait to continue exploring many more of Miro's most famous pieces this half term.
