For our Christmas Art, we turned ourselves into Santa’s Elves!

We used paper plates to design an elf face that looked just like our own face.

In Maths, we were learning about right angles in our environment.

We made our own ‘right angles’ out of paper card and we took a walk around

our school to find some. We found out that right angles are everywhere in our school

building!

In November, we were learning all about houses; different houses around the world, including animal

houses (ask us what we know about a fox’s home and a badger’s home!)
For art, we brought in materials from home to make our own ‘house’. We used cardboard, paper,
tissue rolls and cereal boxes. We produced some very creative designs!

Science Week (November 12th-19th)

Second Class in Room 10 were set a challenge to find out which material would be the best

at keeping ice-lollies cool and slowing down the melting process.

We tried out tin foil, plastic, paper, tissue, cardboard and cotton wool.

We recorded how the ice-lollies appeared every 5 minutes.

Our results showed that the ice-lollies wrapped in cotton wool were the slowest to

melt and, therefore, cotton wool was the best at keeping the ice-lollies cool!

Bridge Building in 2nd Class

Check out our amazing works of architecture. These bridges took a lot of time and effort but we think they are worth it!
