As part of our UK topic we will be studying some famous artists from across the UK. We have started with Damien Hirst, we have been mixing paint colours to create some wonderful pieces of art in the style of Hirst.
We have been placing locations from our story, 'The Queen's Handbag.' We have been using the atlas to place the locations on a map of the UK.
We made a magic potion which had to be 500mls in capacity. We had to measure very accurately. We made some fantastic potions.
Today we were set the challenge of making the UK out of play dough. We weren't allowed to look at any maps! We had to use our own knowledge to make the shape and place the country names where we thought they went. We had lots of great discussions!
We love our Friday Gaelic football sessions. We learn lots of new skills and enjoy working as part of a team.
We investigated how shadows are formed by using our hands to block the light source. We practise making shadow animals with our hands.
Today we learnt all about keeping the beat while singing. We sang Bring Back my Bonnie to Me. We learnt a lot and had lots of fun.
We have read a fantastic new story called, ‘How to Wash a Woolley Mammoth,’ we even had a go at washing some mammoth fur (faux of course) and used lots of imperatives verbs! It was great fun!
As part of our plastic in our oceans topic, we tested our knowledge of the five oceans and the six continents. With our partners we tried our best to remember where the continents and the oceans were. We then voted on the most accurate map!
