Artists and Beasts!
This term we have learnt four different European artists: Matisse, Van Gogh, Miro and Klee. We looked carefully at the style and the types of media they used and then created our own artwork in the same style. We have some fantastic collages, self-portraits and paintings decorating our classroom now.
We all enjoyed reading and writing about The Lonely Beast. We had some pretty scary looking beasts in our class during our acting sessions!
We have been learning how to solve addition and subraction calculations using the column method. We are all aiming to be brilliant mathematicians by the end of this year!
What else has happened this term?
As usual during Term 1, we held a class election to vote for the children who would be our School Council members for the year. The children gave wonderful reasons why they would make great school councillors and I am pleased to say that Aaliyah, Jason and Kieron will be the councillors for Owl class this year.
We enjoyed listening to different visitors during our Worship, including: Mike from Church Army, Tom from Caring Hands and the wonderful Family Trust. Mike started a Bible Club with some of our Year 2 children which will happen every Monday. Tom from Caring Hands visited the school and told us how we could help him feed homeless people. For harvest, we all brought in food for Tom to cook. Thanks to our generous parents who contributed so much. The Family Trust led a 'Big Question' session in Owl class. We acted out the Creation Story and then came up with our own BIG questions for Family Trust to help us answer.
Some of our class also took part in an inter-school sports competition. We did really well...we have some really fast athletes in Owl class.
