The children have been busy practising singing, playing glockenspiels and composing in music over the last few weeks. We are experts! We can perform our song and play the instruments and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves!
We have finished our unit in Art about natural sculptures, inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. The children designed their own collages using images of their clay models, land art and they drew some of the natural materials they used to decorate it. These collages look great!
The children have been extending their learning about algorithms in computing and they have been sending the Beebots around a mat trying to avoid the obstacles! How successful were they?
What another extremely busy week we have had in JC2 again! We have learnt about germination, planted seeds and bulbs, programmed our Beebots with algorithms, practised our cricket skills and played glockenspiels to 'Zootime', a song we are learning. Phew!! We are all exhausted and ready for the weekend!
Hello everyone! Welcome to the summer term, We have only been back a week and already the children have been extremely busy! Our key question this term is 'How would you advise the Three Little Pigs?' and we have started by looking at different types of houses in history, learning a new song in music and practising algorithms in computing.
In Art this week the children have been making models of natural objects and things, having been inspired by Andy Goldsworthy's sculptures using natural objects that he finds outside. Take a look at JC2'S clay models
We have also been retelling the story of The Three Little Pigs in English. The children worked in groups and learned the story by heart using actions. They then performed the story in front of the class. Take a look at the photos below, they were brilliant!
We have been reading 'The True story of the Three Little Pigs as an alternative version to the original traditional tale. We all thought it was very funny and next week we will be reading 'The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig'. We can't wait for that story!
The children will be bringing home a pack of reading books every Monday along with a list of spellings for the week. The books will need to be returned every Friday and new ones will be issued on the following Monday.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday.
PE is every Thursday and the children will wear their PE kits to school.
Homework will be issued every Monday to be completed and handed in on Friday. Of course, if it is completed before Friday, then the children can bring it in earlier. There will be alternate weeks of Maths and English homework.
Please find below an overview of what we will be learning in JC2 this year!
