World Book Day
Today we celebrated World Book Day. The whole school dressed up as their favourite book character and we did lots of exciting activities throughout the day. We read lots of our favourite books and we enjoyed guessing what we had all dressed up as.
Last week was arts week in school. Class 2 looked at the life and works of Alexander Calder. We produced some artwork in the style of his work. We used primary colours and enjoyed experimenting with different shapes.

Today we looked at various different books by Eric Carle. We looked at the way that he creates different animal collages. We focused on the book ‘1, 2, 3, Zoo’ and looked at the lion collage. We then created our own lion collages inspired by Eric Carle’s lion.

When Billy looked in his bucket, he went under the sea. We all saw different…
Today we looked at some famous paintings of boats on the sea. We then painted our own picture. We started by painting the sky. We then painted the sea in green. After the green sea had dried, we painted over the top in blue. Next, we used a lollypop stick to create waves.
This afternoon we decided to do some artwork to make our class reading garden more inviting. We used finger painting to create some colourful butterflies and leaves. We had to make sure that the butterflies were symmetrical. We also made some collage flowers using card and tissue…

In Class 2 we enjoy our mind breaks between learning. It helps us to stay focused and ready for the rest of our learning.
