Term 2

Andy Goldsworthy

We have been looking at the artist Andy Goldsworthy. We have looked at all the amazing sculptures he has made with natural resources, it was amazing!

We had an afternoon of making our own natural sculptures using Andy Goldsworthy as inspiration. We made patterns in glitter. We tried stacking wooden logs and log slices. Some children created sculptures by making patterns with the resources. We used paint to create leaf prints. Finally, we all had a go at weaving the natural resources. It was great fun! At the end we shared the pictures of our art and talked about how we made them! We have had an amazing afternoon being aspirational Artists!

Liberty’s Weather Report

Thursday 1st December 2022

We have been Super Scientists learning all about the weather across the UK. We decided to make our own weather report for the 1st of December. It’s a new month and we were interested to see what the weather would be like! We used the MET Office website to find the weather charts and we looked at lots of different types of weather maps. We knew where to find Dover from our learning last term!

The Seasonal Journey

This term our topic has been the Seasonal Journey. We have been looking at the weather around the UK and what the weather is like in each season. We have started our journey of being Super Scientists. We looked at different instruments that measure weather, and we made our own rain gauges! We followed the instructions and created 7 rain gauges to measure how much rain will fall in the week. We are going to see how much rain falls in cm and record it on a table for the week.

Learning Lift Off

We had an amazing learning lift off in Liberty class. We worked as Collaborative Cats to build our ‘guy’. We used paper to stuff him and learnt all about Penny for the Guy.

When we had finished making him we walked around to the other classes in the school to collect our pennies. We made £2.05!!

At the end of the day we sat around our bonfire and toasted marshmallows and drank hot chocolate, we even sang camp fire songs! It was a lovely experience and we finished by watching some amazing fireworks!

The children are very excited to learn all about the reason behind why we build a guy and who ‘Guy Fawkes’ is. We are going to have some amazing hand-on Historians in Liberty class!
