Special Visitor - 27th July 2019

We were lucky to have a visit from Mrs Brown this week. She brought in some amazing nocturnal animals from Leeds Museum for us to see. 

Summer Term 2

We have been looking at different artists and comparing their work involving flowers and gardens with Matisse. We have looked at Van Gogh's Sunflowers and Monet's Water Lilies. We made oil pastel and paper collages of sunflowers. We worked together as a whole class to create a large Monet  inspired garden picture. 


Our seeds have now grown and we have been able to identify the plants. We have also been carrying out experiments to test what a plant needs to grow well.

In Maths we have been learning about measure. We have learnt about centimetres and metres and their relationship. We have measured items in the classroom to see if they were or less than a metre. We also measured everyone in the class to see who was the shortest and who was the tallest.
We have had great fun writing riddles. We wrote a riddle about an animal. Can you guess what we are describing?

Summer Term 2019


This term our topic is Plants. We have been busy planting in our classroom and are growing Marigolds. We have also each planted a mystery seed. It could be a sunflower, sweetcorn, radish or a nasturtium. We will have to wait and see!

Henri Matisse

We have also been learning about the work of Henri Matisse. He used paper and scissors to create some of his most famous work. He inspired us to have a go at 'painting with scissors'.

Spring Term 2019

During the Spring Term our topic is Day and Night. We have been learning about nocturnal animals. We began out topic with a visit from Owl Adventures. We have made animal puppets and painted Barn Owls. Here is some of our work.
