Here are some more photos from our Arts Week. We have been adding to our gallery outside with our left prints, decorated cds to keep the birds away and our amazing watercolour pictures of our school grounds.
Flamingoes are very proud of their BFG scarecrow. They have collaborated brilliantly to sew all his clothes.
We have had an enjoyable start to Arts Week in Year 2. The theme for the week is wildlife, nature and improving our allotment.
On Monday we collaborated together to decide how to decorate our allotment beds and then we painted them carefully. We also spent some time weaving on the fence next to our classroom.
On Tuesday we collaborated to create some sculptures using natural materials and then in the afternoon we used iPads to take photos around our grounds. We then used a painting tool to add minibeasts onto our photos.
The weather is getting warmer and summer will soon be here! Yesterday Flamingo Class planted seeds in our allotment outside our classroom. We have planted courgettes, sweetcorn and sunflowers, we are looking forward to seeing them grow. Also we have been planting sunflowers, courgettes and tomatoes in the Infant polytunnel, we hope to be able to share our crops soon!
Flamingo Class have been busy decorating an elephant ready to take part in the Enormous Elephant Trail. This year's theme is 'Memorable Moments', as elephants never forget! Each elephant celebrates a moment in history where an individual has followed their beliefs and passion to achieve something amazing. None of these people knew when they were young what they would grow up to be and how they would end up influencing world history and leave such a legacy for future generations.
Our elephant is called 'Winston' in honour of Winston Churchill. We have learnt about him and designed our elephant to include his hat and bow tie. Winston Churchill is most famous for leading Britain's fight against Nazi Germany using his skills as a talented speaker by giving stirring speeches to boost national morale. We have included some of his famous quotes on our elephant. Can you spot the London skyline as the planes fly through the sky?
I hope that many Flamingoes will be able to go hunting for our elephant and all the others over the Easter holidays. Please take pictures of the ones you find and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
From Sat 8th April to Sun 23rd April there will be 40 wonderfully decorated elephants hiding in the shops in Broadmead and the Galleries waiting for you to discover them.
There are also a range of activities for families throughout the Easter holidays please go to www.faceboook.com/thearkbus
Maps will be coming home on Friday but they also are available for download from:
During science today we went all around our school looking for mini-beasts, bugs and insects. We had fun looking in lots of different places to see what we could find.
Last week we had a fantastic tour of Ashton Gate Football Stadium. Here are some photos from our excellent tour of the changing room, dug outs, press room and players lounge.
We also play a staring role in the video that Bristol Sport made, follow the link to see the video.
Today Flamingo Class walked to Ashton Park Secondary School to take part in the KS1 Dance Festival with 7 other schools from South Bristol. We performed our Hawaiian themed dance that we have been busy practicing for the last few weeks. I was incredibly proud of Flamingoes performance, there enthusiasm for their dance was amazing. A big thank you to all parents for providing costumes and to those who walked with us today. Here are a few photos from today. I hope to be able to share a video of the performance soon.
Please come to Family Assembly this Friday when we will be performing live for you all!
We have had a brilliant start to our dinosaur week. I am so impressed with all the models, posters and books Flamingos have brought in to show us. Thank you to parents for supporting learning at home this weekend, I can tell how much the children enjoyed it from their enthusiasm!
Today we had a visit from the Bristol Dinosaur Project and we learnt about a dinosaur discovered in a quarry up on the Downs. We were able to touch and learn about some real fossils.
Back in class we collaborated together to solve this problem: Put 17 dinosaur eggs into 3 nests. Each nest should have an odd number of eggs. How many different ways can you do this?
Here are some photos from our day:
Flamingo Class must have had a fantastic holiday as they came back full of energy and raring to go with their learning!
Here are some pictures from last week:
- In Maths we solved the mystery of the missing Snowman's nose by using our maths skills to solve clues.
- We had a fun afternoon building sleigh's for Santa, we worked together brilliantly.
- We have started reading The Twits by Roald Dahl. We made a beard for Mr Twit and stuck food into it.
