Design Technology

In DT the children have designed and made animal finger puppets out of felt. They learned how to sew using a running stitch to join two pieces of felt together then decorated their finger puppets by carefully following their plan. Can you guess which animals they are?

Summer Term 1, 2022

RE

This week (week 1), the children made Ngara crosses as part of their RE lesson learning about and exploring symbols of Jesus' death and resurrection. Ngara crosses were created in a school in north-west Tanzania at Ngara Anglican Primary School. The Ngara pupils studied crosses made, in Andy Goldsworthy style, by KS2 pupils in a school in Ipswich. Since then, this has become part of the Year 2  RE curriculum. 

The children in Orwell Class enjoyed collecting natural objects found in our local environment and then worked collaboratively to create their own Ngara crosses.

 

Spring Term 2022

Our whole school focus for the Spring term is 'Our Changing World'. In Year 2 we have linked this to our Science curriculum, living things and their habitats; in Geography looking at continents and locating hot and cold countries around the world and the significance of the equator; in PSHE looking at different environments around the world, the people that live in them and comparing the similarities and differences.

English

We read books and used these as a stimuli that also reflect the theme 'Our Changing World' and the importance of looking after the environment and living things having a habitat to which they are suited. Below is a selection of the books we read.

The Lumberjack's Beard

The Lorax

Greta and the Giants

Somebody Swallowed Stanley

Meerkat Mail

Lost and Found

Kaya's Heart Song

 

Art & Design                               

Anthony Frost is a British painter noted for his abstract work consisting of brightly coloured prints and collages. He uses different materials to create texture in his paintings. The children created their own artwork in response to his work. 

Easter Cards

In Art & Design, the children had learned how to make brush strokes when stenciling to create images with texture. They applied this technique to make Easter cards.

Science

The children took their learning outside to enjoy the sunshine and to explore the school's outdoor environment. We were investigating micro-habitats with the focus on soil and which minibeasts we could discover. The children carefully dug up some soil then used magnifying glasses to see what they could find. Once they had finished their investigations, the children returned the soil to the same place it had been taken from to ensure all the minibeasts were safely returned to their habitat.


Autumn Term 2021

In RE we have been learning about Judaism. We listened to the story 'The Hardest Word' and how a bird called Ziz had to learn how to say sorry for his mistakes. At Yom Kippur, Jewish people have the chance to put things right before asking for God's forgiveness.
