Zircon class had a brilliant craft session on Friday when we completed making our winter snow globes. The children made models to begin with and secured them to the lid of the jar, before adding some pretend snow and creating the glittery liquid for the figure to stand in. Thank you parents and careers for bringing in the jars so promptly, we hope you enjoy them at home!
Today Topaz class had great fun making snow globes. Using the models they had previously made, the children filled their jars with glitter to create their masterpieces!
This week in Year 2 we will be making snow globes using jam jars. In preparation for this, Topaz class made small winter figures using plasticine which we will place inside our snow globes.
Our figures include snowmen, elves, a house and a tea cup!
To all parents of children in year 2, all the children will need a jam jar later this week as we are making snow globes! We will need the jars for the lesson on Thursday but please bring in at any point this week! Thank you from all the year 2 teachers 🙂
All classes have now had their parent workshops on handwriting. We would like to thank all of those parents who joined us. Next week we are starting to look at poetry. This week we would like you to choose your favourite poem and write it out using your neatest handwriting. The poem can be any length, and style and on any subject.
You can find some poems here: http://www.poetry4kids.com
Topaz class were making handbags on Friday from different materials. Continuing with our topic of Materials, next week we will test which materials are waterproof and which are not.
The class made bags using tissue paper, thick paper, plastic and felt. Can you guess which material can best repel water?
