The year 2s spent a couple of days in Dove class with their new classmates and we investigated the topic of endangered species. Children worked in teams to produce PowerPoints and collages of their animal, and then we voted on which animal we will sponsor with the WWF. The winner was the polar bear!
Whales class have been finding out all about root vegetables. We’ve researched where and how they grow, tasted and evaluated shop-made salads and then had a go at making our own. The children learnt to peel, grate and chop carrot, apple and cucumber. They then experimented with mixing different ingredients and flavours together until they found a winning combination… or not!
“It was really hard to peel an apple because it’s a round shape.” Dylan
“When I tried the salad it tasted a bit tangy, sharp and even a bit tasty!” Lizzie
Whales class have created sculptures inspired by the work of Alexander Calder. They have learnt to sculpt and draw with wire. The sculpture workshops have combined Art, Design Technology and Maths skills, learning to use pliers, twist and form wire, cut shapes and balance their creations. The class have been so enthusiastic and imaginative throughout their art workshops. The new school library is a beautiful new exhibition space for the sculptures too.
