Miss Davies: June 2016
We have had an enjoyable week working hard in Base 2!
In science we have continued our learning about plants by planting our own sunflowers. The children are keen to watch them grow and look after them. We have discussed what is needed for a plant to grow and we can also confidently talk about why certain things are needed.
We have recapped our learning in geography, discussing the parts of the United Kingdom and capital cities. The children have also looked at some maps of Britain, locating Southampton (linking with the history work on Titanic).
In literacy this week we have completed some fabulous diary writing. We took the character of Hamish the cat from our topic story focus ' The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' and wrote diaries from Hamish's perspective, writing that he never wanted anything to do with the seagull scenario and that he was terrified of heights! We have also found out some more information on lighthouses and can now label the parts of lighthouse and explain the purpose of each part.
We have continued learning some sea shanties in music and we are making progress with our singing as well as accompanying actions. We hope to perform our songs on Pirate Day in Base 2 on Tuesday 12th July.
In art this week we have used black sugar paper and chalk to depict night time images of lighthouses guarding the ships on the ocean. The children truly enjoyed this activity and the finished chalk drawings were beautiful!
Have a wonderful week!
