We had great fun tasting different fruits. We designed and made our own fruit kebab and then we ate it. The fruit kebabs were DELICIOUS!!!!
In art we looked at the artists Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne. We looked at their pictures of 'Still Life'. We used fruit, jugs, bowls and cloths to recreate our own 'Still Life' . We drew our 'Still Life' using pencils and then pastels. What fantastic efforts we made. Look out for a display of some of our art work!
Before half term Year 2 learnt about the artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo. He was an Italian artist who made pictures using fruit and vegetables. We had a go at creating our own pictures in a similar style to Guiseppe Arcimboldo.
Robins had such an interesting visit to Tesco. We looked at different fruits and vegetables, had a talk at the fish counter, visited the store at the back of the shop, went into a fridge and freezer and tasted lots of different foods. We had such a fun afternoon and found out so much!
Year 1 and Year 2 really enjoyed their theatre trip to see 'The Enormous Turnip'.
Warburton's Bakery visited year 2 this week. They taught us how bread is made, shared good advice about healthy eating and told us about their interesting history. We had a chance to make our own sandwich once we had learnt a little bit about food hygiene.
We really enjoyed our Farm to Fork trip at Tesco's. We were able to look at the warehouse, visit the fishmongers to gut a fish and stand in a very large fridge and freezer.
Robins had great fun designing and making their sock puppets. We had to glue and sew to create them. We thought the finished puppets were FABULOUS!
We enjoyed our trip to St. Pancras church for our wedding. Before we left for the church we put our smart clothes on and we had a look at Mrs. Hale's wedding dress.
