Swallows - Art
In art, we have been learning about sculptures. We have looked at Alexander Calder’s stabiles and Antony Gormley’s body sculptures and created our own using paper, wire and tin foil.
Woodpeckers - Exploring Clay
Woodpeckers have been exploring how to use wire to add strength and stability to their clay sculptures and how to use different tools to create texture.
Kingfishers Class spent a day at Rosemoor as part of our Wriggle and Crawl topic this term. We learnt about some of the minibeasts that lived in the woodland, then went on a hunt for them, using magnifying jars and insect viewers to help us study them up close. We found centipedes and snails and spiders and beetles, including a beautiful Violet Ground Beetle. Afterwards, we made clay sculptures of a minibeast and made a home for it amongst the trees. We even found time to play games on the lawn after lunch!
Swallows - Rosemoor
Swallows visited Rosemoor to find out more about the plants and animals living in the gardens there. They listened carefully to see how many birds they could hear in the woods and even saw a deer running through the woods. They also enjoyed finding out about where, at Rosemoor, different minibeasts live.
We love being outdoors! We used clay to make faces and explored the other natural resources using our own ideas and imaginations.
Swallows - Minibeast Hunt
Swallows did a minibeast hunt as part of their outdoor learning. They found bees, worms, slugs, snails, ants, woodlice and even a centipede!
Woodpeckers - Swimming
We are really enjoying being able to be back in the pool. So far we have worked hard on gaining confidence being in the water and lifting our feet to help us move across the pool. We loved the new inflatables!
