Class 2 Friday Outdoor learning fun.Splashing in Puddles!
For our art this half term we have made 3D insects from newspaper, tissue paper and wire.
First we drew several different insects to make sure that we included a head, thorax, abdomen, wings and six legs.
Next we chose an insect and drew a design.
Then we constructed the models using paper and masking tape. We made wings if the models needed them.
We are really pleased with our painted finished results.
One of our parents was looking after an orphaned hedgehog. We were pleased to be able to see him in Class.
We have been learning to play Pocket Trumpets. So far we can play two notes and we are learning how this looks on the music stave.
It's a busy time of the year for our Outdoor learning. We are preparing our beds in our School Garden ready for our new planting.
Team work during Forest Schools helped us get across our field using milk crates and alot of balance!
And who doesn't like splashing in puddles!
