2-Week project, due back Monday 6th February
As part of our topic this term, we have been sketching and drawing teddy bears before modelling them using clay. Over the next 2 weeks, you need to be researchers, using books and the internet to find out as much as you can about teddy bears…
- How were they invented?
- What famous teddy bears do you know about?
- Why do people like them?
- How are they played with?
Here are some internet links you might find useful:
Remember! Think carefully about how you will present your work. It should be clear and easy for the reader to understand, with:
- Neat with good layout and your best handwriting
- Full sentences with lots of interesting description
- Well-structured so the information makes sense
Good luck! We can’t wait to hear what you find out!
This afternoon, 2W have been lucky enough to take part in a drama workshop linked to our learning in English. We met the Funky Fairy who asked us to help him defeat the Red Queen and rescue the Fairytale book that she had stolen! We played games and had to pretend to be stars so that she didn’t catch us! As we crept through the Fairytale Forest, we created and mixed potions, pretended to be different characters from well-known tales and encountered a magical chair that made us do all kinds of different things! We all had great fun and gathered some new ideas to include in our own fairytales!
This morning, in our Maths lesson, we have been learning about fractions. We know that a fraction is a part of the whole and we have learnt that all of the parts need to be equal. In the photos, you will see that we cut our fruit into halves and then quarters. How many parts are there when the apple is cut into halves? If 4 friends shared an apple, what fraction would they each receive?
2W have already made a fantastic start to our new term and it’s only 10 o’ clock! Our exciting new topic is ‘Toys and Games’ and we are currently drawing our favourite toys and games and annotating the pictures with information. We are writing about why the toys are our favourites, who gave them to us, what they’re made of, how we play with them, etc, etc. Have a look at the photos to see if you can tell what we most enjoy playing with. What is your favourite toy or game?
It all started at the bakery in Pudding Lane….
Keeping ourselves safe by standing well back from the fire…
The fire in Pudding Lane rages like an inferno…
As it burns out, the flames die away, leaving the ashes and cinders behind…
The fire fighters make sure the fire is completely put out by spraying it with their water hose. The water causes a great billowing cloud of smoke…
Here is our finished bread. It looks delicious!
Thanks to our fabulous parent volunteers!
This morning, we have been lucky enough to be joined by some lovely parents who have helped us to make delicious bread. We combined our learning from several different areas during this exciting task:-
- Reading – to help us follow the recipe carefully.
- Maths – we weighed the flour and measured the water.
- PHSME – practising our co-operation and communication skills.
- History – finding out what Thomas Farriner’s job involved.
- D&T – learning about food hygiene and food technology.
- Science – looking at how materials change when they are heated.
Our loaves are currently proving for their final time and will be going into the oven in a few minutes. At the end of the day, we will get to take them home and share them with our families. Yum!
Whilst waiting for the dough to prove, our fabulous parents also read with us too. Thank you!
