Spring half-term 1
Unit 2 have had a fantastic half term! We have been working very hard with our writing, reading and maths. The children have also had a go at recorders in music learning to play a whole tune! They have also been developing their ball and racket skills in tennis lessons in PE. In History we have been learning about the Vikings and the battle of Hastings. In Science the children have been exploring the water cycle and using condensation to grow Cress!
The whole Unit have been trying to improve their tennis skills in PE. The children have developed their ball and racket skills by using cones to to improve their hand eye co-ordination before moving on to rackets.
In Art the children have been completing an Artist study of Henri Matisse. We had a go at colour matching one of his pieces of art and looked at improving our brush strokes. We then had a go at recreating one of Henri Matisse's paintings.
In Music, we have been learning music with Mrs Harvey. The children have had a great time learning to read music and play short tunes on the recorders. They have also had a go at writing music and creating their own scores.
