As part of our Mastery English work we have been exploring the main character from our text, Dear Greenpeace, and considering how she feels and what type of character she is.

There was only one thing for it….. drama!

For our science work the children have been exploring many different materials and asking themselves some rather odd questions to determine the best uses of materials. As always, we are exploring the why not as well as the why.

There was lots of giggling and unusual reasoning this lesson.

Illustrating our writing

You may have already heard but we are looking at developing our writing this year and adding illustrations to each piece of writing we complete at the end of a unit. We all have our own set of paints to look after and we use these to paint an aspect of our writing.

I was very impressed with the Y2 and they showed me they could rise to a challenge.

The finished work was wonderful and made me and the children very proud of what they had produced.

RE recipe for a happy family

In our topic of homes we have been exploring what ‘behaviours’ would be present if we behaved the way Jesus told us in the Bible. We had a list of different behaviours and had to select those we felt were a good choice in a happy home and we threw away all of those we felt were negative.

We then mixed all of the good characteristics together and made a recipe for a happy home.

Computing and Science

We combined our learning about Autumn with computing this week and compared our colour mixing.

We went on a lovely Autumn walk on Monday searching out the signs of Autumn. We collected various Autumn treasures, mostly leaves! We studied the leaves carefully and recreated the colours back in class.

In computing we used a drawing package to recreate the leaves again – colours and shapes. We are going to compare them next week and decide which media was the most effective for this task.

Here’s a sneak peek…..
