Term 2

Awesome Adventurous Aardvark Artists

Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy we used natural materials to create our own sculptures.  We looked at our pieces as we worked on them and then made any changes we thought would help make them even better – altering the layout or adding more items to build upon what we had so far.  Our results were fantastic! What a brilliant group of artists we have in Harmony class!

We started this term finding out about the 5th November and why we have fireworks on this day every year.  We listened to The Gunpowder Plot story and information about Guys Fawkes before creating our own artwork, thinking of different words to help describe what we can see and hear and making puppets to help us share the story with each other.  We also chose a part of the story to freeze frame - look at our awesome acting skills as we become a character from the story.

Poppy Day

On the 11th November we paused to show what respectful rabbits we are.  We talked about why we wear poppies and then based our learning around this special day.  Check out some of our fabulous art work and inspiring poetry.

Seasons

This term we are learning about the four seasons and the changes that take place as we move from one season to another.  To help inspire our learning and deepen our understanding of Autumn we went on a trip to the Elms Vale park.  As we walked we paused to use our senses and take in what the world around us is like in Autumn. We could see so many different colours on the trees, hear the leaves crunch and rustle as we shuffled through them and we even smelt the lingering smoke coming from someone’s chimney.
