News from Reception
This week children have had fun engaging in different 'All about Me' activities. They have explored different aspects of themselves: their characteristics such as their hair, skin, eyes as well as their differences and similarities. They explored their feelings and emotions, talked about likes and dislikes, and their future aspirations.
Year 1 News
In Year One English we have been exploring imperative/command sentences.
We practiced using a “bossy” tone of voice when reading the text “Not a Stick” by Antoinette Portis. We then orally composed, refined and rehearsed our own appropriate sentences.
Finally we composed some signs to highlight pertinent information using command/bossy sentences.
We had to use correct punctuation and neat handwriting to write each sentence.
Can you guess where our signs would be most suitable?
Year 2 Pop Art
Year 2 Artists have entered the world of Pop Art and have been exploring the features of this art movement through looking at the work of Andy Warhol and other famous pop artists. Pupils identified some of the common features of Andy Warhol’s work and then produced a piece of work in their sketch books to practise applying these features through their own context. Children traced a pattern onto repeated tiles, then used complementary colours to colour in each tile (Year 2 pupils will tell you that complementary colours are opposite colours on the colour wheel!)
