Hands on learning in 2WB

We got involved in a whole-school project and made some 3D hand shapes today, using our clay modelling skills. We had to think about the thickness of our clay, keeping it flat and even. We worked with a partner to carefully draw around our hands. We used precision tools to cut around the shape we […]

2WB became intrepid explorers 🧭

We had our class visit on Wednesday, exploring a local interest site and investigating the local physical and man-made features in the land. Adults wore masks and we took our sanitisers along (in our coat pockets). We avoided touching any gates, etc. unnecessarily, to keep ourselves safe. We were lucky with the weather and had […]

Sharing a Shell

We have been reading the story Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson. We discussed the themes of friendships and thought of ways to help each other in class. The children practised applying their phonics to write labels and painted some wonderful pictures of the sea creatures from the story.

Black Arts History FS2

FS2 have been creating their own versions of artwork by Alma Thomas. We explored mosaic patterns through cutting and arranging paper. We were brilliant at controlling a paintbrush to paint different sized spots and arranged them in different ways.

Fizzy Rainbow Science

The children in F1 have recently done some science work linked to reactions. We used baking soda, food colouring and vinegar to create fizzy rainbows. The children loved looking at what happened when the baking soda and vinegar met!
