Falcon Class Gallery...
During Maths week, we have had great fun looking at the properties of 2D shape, measuring the perimeter of shapes and understanding position and direction through right angles and turns! We also helped year 1 create a maths based picture book and created some artwork based on the abstract artist Kandinsky.
As part of our topic on the Stone Age, we studied pictures of cave paintings and then created our own. Can you see any stories they are telling?
We made ammonites using clay. We painted them and varnished them too.
We had a special visitor to our class just before the Christmas holidays. He brought us some lovely presents for our book shelf and Golden Time cupboard.
We investigated how we could change a shadow. We looked at how to make them bigger/smaller, blurry or clearer. We then created shadow puppets and had a go at retelling parts of the Christmas Story.
As part of our topic on light, we looked at different materials and predicted whether we thought they would be transparent, translucent or opaque. We then tested them out using a light source.
We sketched autumnal leaves using oil based pastels and then created swirls of paint around them to look like they were blowing in the wind.
As part of our Maths homework, we had to make models of 3D shapes. Which interesting shapes can you spot?
We had a calculations afternoon where our adults came in to learn the methods we use when working with the four operations. We had great fun teaching them different strategies they never learnt when they were at school!
To end our topic, we created healthy 'Spooky Sandwiches'. We had to create a design and then decide on the ingredients. We practised our chopping skills too!
During Book Week, we took part in a whole school sponsored Readathon. We had a whole afternoon of reading activities. We built dens and snuggled up with our favourite books...it was really fun!
We had two Authors visit us during Book Week - Alan Durant and Richard Dodd. We heard some of their stories and then had a go at some writing ourselves.
We have made 'Fruit Heads' inspired by the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
We went to Tesco for a 'Farm to Fork' workshop.
