Year 2 – Fishy Fun – 10/03/17
This afternoon, we got creative with our Under the Sea theme by painting sea creatures for our display and making fact files of fish.
Some children also rote and read some more poetry and designed a colourful underwater picture.
Willow class produced some excellent rhyming poems today in their “Big Write” with Miss Jones. This literacy topic has been led by Miss Jones as part of her final teacher training placement with Plymouth University. Well done guys!
Today, we continued making our shadow puppets and some of us managed to put on a show for others!
We used the light from the projector to make an under water scene and our puppets blocked the light to make a shadow.
Today, we explored different instruments and practiced a variety of ways to play them.
We learned that ‘tempo’ means speed, and ‘dynamics’ means volume.
We’re working our way towards composing our own piece of film music for our topic ‘Under the Sea’.
This afternoon we had a visitor come into school and talk to us about what it is like to be a fisherman at sea! We leanered about what equipment is needed to catch crabs and lobsters and then even got to see some live sea creatures!!
