Base 2 have had a busy few days focusing on 'birds' as part of our Explorers theme. We thought about how aeroplanes and birds were alike and came up with two facts: they both have wings and both can fly.

We started by listening to the story The New Bird King and had great fun retelling the story in small groups
and performing for each other. Mrs Winward and I were very impressed how well they organised themselves and recounted the story. We then wrote about our favourite bird in the story. Was it the toucan with the very big beak or the myna bird who could talk to all the creatures? You'll have to read our sentences to find out!

The children then looked at a book called The Extinct Book of Boids and talked about some of the very witty illustrations by Ralph Steadman of birds that have become extinct. There were all sorts of birds in all sorts of habitats. The children were then tasked with creating their own bird and deciding on the habitat it would live in. They were given inks and acrylic paints to create their own habitats for their bird; they painted, washed, sponged, scraped, splattered, flicked and dotted the paint to create their backgrounds. They were then tasked with using oil pastels to draw and colour their birds — what an eclectic gallery we have!

Enjoy a taster of our art work so far...there will be more as our artistic masterpieces are finished and put on display!
