As you all know we have been learning about seeds, plants and flowers in our Science lessons. We have made predictions about how we think seeds and bulbs will grow in different conditions, we have planted our own seeds and bulbs and we have learnt about the life cycle of a plant.
This week we would like you to consolidate your learning and click on the link below to watch the videos and take part in the quiz all about plants and flowers.
Recently we have been learning lots of facts about minibeasts in our English lessons. Last week, lots of you wrote some fantastic minibeast riddles and we had lots of fun guessing which minibeast the riddle was about.
We will be continuing with our minibeast theme for the next week and for your home learning we are giving you a selection of minibeast based activities that we would like you to choose from.
Read through the activities and choose one you would like to do. You could choose to do more than one!
This week in Science we have been learning about Microhabitats. We talked about the minibeasts we might find in microhabitats in our gardens, parks and streets.
This week we would like you to go on a minibeast hunt in your habitat. This could be in your garden, local park or street. Write a list of the minibeasts you find. We would love you to share with us at school what you found and you could even try to present the information in a block graph, tally chart or pictogram.
This week in Science we learnt about human and animal habitats. Click on the link below which will take you to BBC Bitesize and the Galaxy Pugs games. Choose to play the habitats game and then you could try the microhabitats game if you have time.
This week in English, we have been looking at the pictures and writing in non-fictions books about animals.
For your home learning, we would like you make a very short non-fiction book about something you are interested in (e.g. a pet, a sport, a car). Include a contents page, titles and drawings (diagrams) with information labels.
Don’t forget to bring your book in after half term!
Don’t forget to log into My Maths and Bug Club as part of your home learning every week.
This week in our Art lessons we have been sketching, colour mixing and working with clay. We have been working on making clay and pastel teddy bears as our final pieces of art.
At home we would like you to continue to practice your sketching skills. Pick an object in your house, put it in front of you and have a go at sketching it. Remember it is ok if your work is messy and you have to try several times before you are happy with your work.
Don’t forget, if you would like to, bring it in and show it to he class.
Over the past couple of weeks, 2T have been working hard on a cross curricular DT and English project. Based on the theme of ‘Old Toys’ we designed and made Jumping Jacks and Spinners. We also wrote a book about our Jumping Jacks, that includes our designs, instructions and an evaluation.
On Thursday we set up our classroom to look like a museum. We put out our toys and books and invited some guests to come along and look at all of hard work. We were visited by Mr Bulpitt, Mr Morris, Miss Little and all of 1L to name a few! We talked to our guests about how we made the toys, gave some demonstrations of how they work and showed people our books.
