1st Class/2nd Class
In History, 1st and 2nd class have been learning about games in the past. In particular, we researched card games played by our grandparents and parents when they were younger and we discussed games that we know how to play ourselves. After recording our findings, we all brought in card games and taught each other how to play them in groups. It was lots of fun!
This week 2nd class are learning about length in maths. We have been discussing standard and non-standard units of measurement as well as centimetres and metres. We have practised estimating and have measured the door, windows, whiteboard, each other, and lots more!
This week we have been learning about the life and work of Canadian artist Maud Lewis. We learned about how she had very bad arthritis which made it difficult for her to paint, and about how she was very poor. She lived in a tiny house in Nova Scotia but painted everything in it with pictures of flowers and nature to make it beautiful. We looked at her lighthouse paintings in particular to inspire our own mixed-media pictures. Have a look at how we made them!
This week in art we explored how to mix primary colours to create secondary colours. We made colour 'sums' then cut them up and arranged them in the order of the rainbow. We then made them into little birds by adding lines and dots. Take a look!
