Art - Marvelous Marbleing
The children created some beautiful marbled paper. They selected their own choice of colours and experimented in moving the marble inks around in the liquid to make various shapes and patterns in their designs.
Class 2 enjoyed a visit to Old Hall School, Wellington for a street dance session. They were joined by other schools from the local area. All children participated well and had a lovely experience.
British Values Flipped Learning
The Department for Education have recently reinforced the need "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."
This is the wonderful work that parents and children did at home for their 'flipped learning homework'. This is Class 2's interpretation of British values represented with images, cuttings, writing and posters.
We used powder and ready mixed paint to create different shades of green. This paint coloured leaf shapes imitating those from classroom plants. These leaves were grouped to make a piece of art like Rousseau's 'Tiger in a Tropical Storm', 1891.
A small group of children followed a recipe to make salt dough rain forest animals.
We have potted various seeds and have been monitoring any changes and discovering what they need to grow.
