Neptune Class were treated to a visit from Kayden's Dad this morning (9.12.19) who came in to read our new story 'Peace at Last'. We really enjoyed his re-telling of the story.
To celebrate the end of our enquiry, we held an art exhibition to display all of our wonderful art work. The children have loved being artists and creating their own art work inspired by famous artists. Thank you to all who came to view our exhibition.
Our new talk for writing story is 'Peace at Last' by Jill Murphy. We enjoyed bringing in our teddies and listening to the story whilst snuggled up under blankets. We imagined we were Mr Bear and what it would be like to be kept up all night by lots of different noises!
Mercury Class had a brilliant time using paint and cotton buds to recreate the other half of two famous paintings. They had to use their observational skills and look carefully at the colours and shapes.
This afternoon, Neptune class enjoyed recreating the work of the artists Georges Seurat and Damien Hirst. We explored how this style of art is called Pointillism.
For our first Science afternoon of the year, we each made a gyrocopter and we worked scientifically to investigate what happened when we changed the weight of it by adding paper clips to it. We discovered that the shape of the gyrocopter changed the speed at which it fell to the ground.
To launch our new enquiry, 'what do artists do?', the children came into school dressed in spots and dots! Don't they look dot-tastic!
As mathematicians in Neptune Class, the children have started to explore number bonds to 5 and 10. These are pairs of numbers that total these amounts. The children used 5 and 10's frames and coloured counters to find each pair. We then started to record these as number sentences such as 6 + 4 = 10 and 7 + 3 = 10. Why not ask us to show you all of the number bonds to 10 at home.
