From the Oceans to the Moon
In Yellow Class we have enjoyed making new friends in our new class and have coped well with the transitions around school.
In English the Year 1’s have been reading and exploring the book ‘The Snail and The Whale’ and the Year 2’s have been studying ‘The Storm Whale.’
Our topic for Autumn Term is ‘From the Oceans to the Moon and in Science we have been learning facts about sea creatures exploring their habitats, what they eat and if they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. We have explored food chains and understand that they always start with a plant. We have also learnt what makes a living thing living.
In computing we have explored what algorithms are and learnt how to input them into a bee-bot to instruct them how to move correctly across a treasure map to find the hidden treasure. We learnt what debugging is and have been using this skill to improve our algorithms.
In Art, we have been learning how to blend shades of blue to create under the sea scenery and created a sea creature using a range of materials. We have also been exploring primary and secondary colours and have been using these mixing skills in our sketch books.
In Music, we have used untuned percussion instruments called Boomwhackers to play know tunes and read musical notations.
In Dance, we have had great fun listening to the music Under the Sea and have created a dance through being different sea creatures, e.g. crabs, octopus, starfish etc.
We have SHINED like the stars we are!
