We have been busy painting our favourite minibeast.
It has been interesting learning all about insects and their homes.
Our topic “Land Ahoy” is well underway. The children’s imaginations and ideas are inspiring. We are going to have a lot of fun this term!
After reading the story Clockwork by Philip Pullman, 6J designed their own clockwork figures and used printing rollers to create blueprint designs for Karl to follow to create a clockwork figure.
What a busy half term we are having! We are enjoying our ‘Water, Water, Everywhere’ topic. We really enjoyed printing pictures of different sea creatures and creating these fantastic 3D models.
To launch our new topics ‘I like to move it!’ and ‘Incredible Inventions’, KS2 held a super STEM day. We used our knowledge of science, technology, engineering and maths to solve a series of problems upsetting Mr Faulkner! He was really pleased with our creative solutions. Da iawn pawb!
This term, we have been reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. The story has inspired lots of our work, including diary entries, maps and artwork (inspired by Hokusai). We have also been learning about orangutans and the threat posed to them by palm oil plantations.
