The children in 2nd & 3rd class have been learning about the human body over the past few weeks. As well as learning the names of various bones in the body, they got the opportunity to see inside the human body and learn about the functions of various organs such as the heart and lungs. Above you can see our skeletons and below, a model showing the inside of our bodies!
We have also been learning about magnetism in Science. The children were given opportunities to freely explore the properties of magnets in groups. We completed experiments to see if magnets worked through various materials.
As part of the literacy strategy introduced in primary schools over the past few weeks, the children have been learning new and interesting words each day and creating sentences with them. Here is our word wall, showing some of the words we now know!
In Art, we studied the works of Pablo Picasso and learned about his Blue Period, Rose Period and African Inspired Period. The children then created their own Picasso inspired works and thought of a name for their piece of art.
We also designed our own ski jackets for the wintery weather and used various textured papers to enhance our designs…..
We also completed a collage entitled “Stormy Seas and Pirate Ships” using various medium. They are on display in the corridor, just outside our classroom.
