What a busy half term Seals have had. The children have enjoyed learning about keeping fit and healthy, especially designing and making a fruit kebab. In Art, the children carefully drew their own portraits and as you can see from the photos they turned out beautifully. In addition to this we have learned about the artist Keith Haring  a pop artist and created our own artwork. Our work in English has been based on stories and poems about the dark and the children have particularly enjoyed writing their own stories and poems. Much fun was had doing a science experiment about teeth, where we observed eggs in different liquids and this fitted in well with a visit from the dentist. After celebrating harvest we found out about how the Jewish people celebrate Sukkah and we built shelters in groups. The children showed good team work skills.

Art Week

We started our week by looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy, an artist who uses natural materials to produce sculptures. We then collected natural objects from the school grounds and used these to make our own pieces of art.

After this we thought about ourselves as people and what we like to do. We looked at the work of clay artists and this inspired us to make clay sculptures showing such activities as reading, football, ballet and rugby. We hope you will be able to come and see them on Monday between 9 and 9.30.

This week we have been inspired by Mike Bernard to make these beautiful collages. Our first stage was to use different materials to make the flames. Next we cut houses from different papers and printed on them using sticks and cubes. Lastly, we splattered paint to complete the effect.

Exciting times in Seals Class

We have made a wonderful start to Year Two and have enjoyed our learning. We are becoming good at using our working walls for English and Maths which help us to remember what is important. We have especially enjoyed writing stories about a journey using noun phrases and conjunctions. We loved making jam sandwiches which helped us to write instructions. In Maths we have become good at using lots of different strategies to add and subtract.
In Art we have been inspired by the artist Keith Haring and have created our own colourful pieces.
We had a great time making a Sukkah in RE which is a Jewish shelter made to celebrate God’s care.
In History we have compared our life with our grandparents and over the half term holiday we are looking forward to asking our grandparents questions about when they were a child.
We are so pleased with Seal’s reading this half term with many children reading five times a week. Well done and keep it up.

Outside maths challenges

Hello!

On 8th July, Mrs Clamp set up some challenges to test our maths skills – and we went outside to find them!

They were all spread out in the outdoor classroom, so we chose a challenge, completed the task and moved on to the next.

We wrote our answers onto whiteboards with our partners and then went back to the cool classroom to see how many we got right. The fresh air helped a lot!

Olympic (fun and) Games

Hello!

The last topic for Seal Class was Rio and the Olympic Games. We’ve looked at geography in this topic, discovering where Brazil is in the world, the Amazon Rainforest and where the Olympics started.

The role play took on the games challenge with an officials table, indoor game ideas, a podium and medals.

The children learned a song called Light The Flame, that has the Olympic motto – Faster, Higher, Stronger – which they sang on our mini-sports morning. They also learned a song called Olympic Blues, which is so catchy that we pretended to play guitar to it! Rock and Roll!
