Spring 2

Time To Travel...

 

Welcome back everybody! We hope you have had a lovely half-term break with lots of rest.

This half term we are very eager to start our new Learning Adventure...'Time To Travel'.

 

Over the next six weeks we will be learning all about different modes of transport from both the past and present. The children will have the opportunity to design and create their own mode of transport and present it to the class. They will also be learning all about the Wright brothers and the first ever flight! 

 

As well as all of this, the children will be studying the illustrator Quentin Blake and creating their own water colour pieces in the same style. 

 

We can't wait to get started!

 

Important dates for this half-term...

 

Art gallery and enterprise afternoon - Tuesday 27th March

Break up for Easter - Thursday 29th March

 

 

Skateboard crisis!!

 

This week 2SO have been reading all about Mrs Armitage and her crazy adventures! After finding out that Miss O'Hagan and Miss Loftus made the terrible mistake of trying to skateboard to the shops, the children have been looking to Mrs Armitage to find a better way to travel!

 

They decided that it might have been a bit safer for us to buy a new bike. They each designed there own bikes with fantastic new features to help us stay safe and have an entertaining journey! Afterwards the children created an advert to sell their bikes to the grown ups!

Quentin Blake

 

This half-term 2SO have been learning all about the work of the brilliant artist and illustrator Quentin Blake. After the children had studied different books that Quentin had illustrated, the children were set the challenge of creating their own versions of Quentin's paintings.

I think you will agree that are absolutely fantastic!
