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!

Drama4All Workshop.

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!

Fantastic Fruity Fractions!

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?
