This half-term Grebes have learned the Bruno Mars song ‘Just The Way You Are’. We changed it up a bit for Harvest!
Actually Harvest portraits following work on Guiseppe Archimboldo.
We have been reading short, thought-provoking picture books to stimulate discussion, debate and writing.
We have been sketching the human face, using guidelines to try to get the features in the right place for a realistic effect.
We have been blowing those lockdown cobwebs away with daily exercise on the field!
Ukulele Orchestra of Salhouse back in rehearsal
We have been practising changing chords and strumming while some are starting to pick melodies!
All the children in Coots have settled really well into school. Over the last few weeks, we have been spending time getting to know each other. Last week, the children started to learn phonics. They have learnt the sounds s,a,t,p,i and n. They are now beginning to segment and blend three letter words with these sounds e.g. sat, nap, pin. At school, we use cursive writing. We must all remember our whooshes in and out. In maths, the children have been practising their numbers to 10 and 20. They have been learning how to form them correctly too. We have also started our Funnybones topic.
This is art inspired by Giuseppi Arcimboldo who used fruit and vegetables to make portraits; we have used natural materials from the school grounds.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you so much for all your thoughtful cards and presents yesterday. It was such an enjoyable day full of ice creams and water fights, although we were missing all of our fantastic home learners! Well done to all of you for this year and have the best summer.
Good luck for Year 2 and beyond!
