"Enjoying Success"

2AS

This week 2AS have taken part in the Big Draw Festival

This is a worldwide celebration of drawing which promotes the universal language of drawing as a tool for learning, expression, and invention. This year’s theme was to explore and discover ways to live in balance with the world around us and we focused on using Zentangles to create our own mindfulness colouring based on our Autumn theme. We practising creating mindfulness designs using animal shapes before using the background we created in Forest School last week to create mindfulness leaf designs.

Forest School

In Forest School this term, we have linked in our art topic and made seasonal leaf prints using autumnal colours as well as creating Jackson Pollock inspired artwork using a “drip painting” technique. We have, of course, also had good fun climbing trees, making dens, cooking in the mud kitchen and making “Log City”.

Reading Week

Today we came in dressed as our favourite book characters and super hero's, we loved it!

Art
Today, in Forest School, the children used the drip painting technique they had practised in previous session to create an art piece using leaves as the template.

 

Maths

In maths, we have been learning about place value, addition and subtraction using practical equipment to support our learning.

The Big Little Nativity

2AS have been working hard with the other Year 1 and 2 classes on their nativity play, “The BIG Little Nativity”. Here are some pictures of the children from their dress rehearsal.

Geography

Today, in Geography, we went to Forest School. We discussed our new topic of “Fabulous Forests” and discussed the physical and human features that we would find there. We then explored Forest School and drew a map showing a range of features. During Free Play we had a guest performance from the 2AS girl band as well as some delicious baked goods from the Forest School Bakery!

 

 

Science

Today, in our Science lesson, we looked at the life of Ole Kirk Christiansen, the inventor of LEGO. We looked at his life story, the materials he used throughout his life and how LEGO became the brand we know today. The children then completed challenges to build various items using LEGO

Science-Materials

Our science topic this term is materials. As part of this work, we have explored materials and their properties, investigated the school grounds for different materials and carried out an investigation to  find out the suitability of materials for a specific purpose.

 

Science-Polar Regions

Today, as part of our Science topic of Polar Regions, we conducted an investigation into how Polar animals keep warm. The children experimented with “blubber” to see if it kept their hand warm in ice

Healthy Eating

Today, as part of our PSHE work on Healthy Eating, we attended a workshop to make a fruit salad. We learnt about the origin of the fruits we used as well as practicing our cutting skills.

 

Science Week

This week we have been lucky enough to have been involved in Science week. Teachers from Oldbury Wells School came to deliver workshops. On Monday, we had a whole school assembly led by Oldbury Wells to introduce the weeks activities. On Tuesday, we had lots of fun making slime! On Wednesday, we looked at what it would be like to survive on Mars and created our own creature that could survive in the cold habitat! On Thursday we explored body parts, organs and models and on Friday, we wrote all about our exciting week and completed a poster competition.
