Our key text that we will be studying this half term is, Big Bad Owl, by Steve Smallman. We will be learning about the different characters in the story and how they behave. We will be comparing the characters and thinking about times when we feel happy, grumpy, afraid or sad.
In art we practiced our skills in shading. We explored different sketching pencils to create shades from light to dark.
We also looked at the work of L.S Lowry and Paul Horton. We thought about how both artists used colour and talked about the similarities and differences between them.
In English we have been writing character and setting descriptions. We have been collecting nouns and adjectives to help us with our descriptions.
In music with Mrs Brunton we learnt about rhythm, pulse and tempo and we started to learn the song ‘Hands, feet, heart.’. We used call and response in our new song and practiced our singing skills.
In geography we went on a walk around the local area. We talked about different features we saw and collected lots of vocabulary to help with our learning in class. We also thought about the different buildings and their uses as well as looking at the different shapes we saw to help with our art.
In P.E we are practising basic skills like running, jumping and throwing. We also used our P.E lessons to help us with our science learning. We thought out what happens to our bodies when we exercise and why exercise is important for us.
We sketched buildings from our local area. We thought about the things we saw on our local walk and used photographs to help us to sketch them. We shaded different parts of the buildings to add detail.
In DT we have designed some fish puppets based on the story ‘There’s only one you.’ We have thought about what we will need to make our puppets and how we will join our materials together.
