Class 2 have had a super week getting busy with everything from a senses poetry learning walk to safer internet activities to gymnastics to conducting surveys with other classes for our maths statistics work. We are also working towards finishing reading our class novel ‘The Christmasaurus’ which the children are really enjoying even though Christmas was a little while ago now. Next week we will look forward to finding out about the work of sculptors Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore and designing and making our our small scale sculptures. Lots of class 2 will also be completing scooter training as well. We will certainly have earned our half-term break!
A couple of weeks ago we were asked to design some posters for the windows of Quick and Clarke Estate Agents in Hornsea. The children were asked to draw either their own house or their dream house. I have received so many creative pictures this week which have been passed onto Quick and Clarke. I will let you know when their window display is ready and you might like to pop along and have a look. These are the pictures that have been completed so far. I think you will agree that they will make a wonderful window display.
Class 2 have really enjoyed their poetry work this week. For homework they have been tasked with learning a short senses poem off by heart. The videos and audio recordings that have been uploaded to Seesaw so far have really made me smile. The children have really thought about their expression for performance poetry and quite a few have added some amazing actions too. I mentioned above that we have been on a senses poetry walk this week. We went out into the school grounds, near the school vegetable garden, and had some quiet time sat in the hut thinking about what we could hear. Very conveniently a small plane went overhead as we sat listening so that was a great sound to add to our collection! The children also recorded what they could see, smell and touch on their sheets. We discussed that although we weren’t going to use our sense of taste by eating something, we could ‘taste’ smoke and blossom as well as being able to smell these things. From their learning walk, the children created some fantastic extended sentences which then became their own senses poems.
