This half term, we are reading the text Big Bad Owl by author Steve Smallman. We will be comparing the main characters in the story and the different ways that they behave. We will consider times when they feel happy, grumpy, embarrassed or upset.
In our art learning, we have been comparing the work of our two artists in focus this half term, L.S. Lowry and Paul Horton. We have used different media to create colour strips based on the colours and tones identified in their paintings.
Before attempting to sketch some of the buildings in their work, paying close attention to the shapes, lines and tones observed, we practised our shading skills using different pencils.
As part of our geography learning, we have been on a walk around the local area identifying streets, buildings and landmarks in Nelson. We even considered whether they were human or physical features. We will use this knowledge to create our own map of the local area in the upcoming weeks.
In our science learning, we have been looking at the different stages of human growth and investigating whether the oldest children in our class are the tallest.
We then read the story Blow Your Nose, Big Bad Wolf by Steve Smallman and discussed the importance of good hygiene. We set up our own investigation to see what happens when we do not wash our hands.
We began our music learning by listening to and appraising the song ‘Hands Feet Heart’ by Joanna Mangona. We then had a go at finding the pulse in the song which we described as the steady heartbeat. We moved in lots of different ways!
