My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes Spring 2
Over the last two weeks we have been to Berlin and Japan. We looked at the country's flag, found out information about special buildings such as the 'Television Tower' and the Velodrome in Berlin and the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. We have also looked at art work by Paul Clee and Katshushika Hokusai and created our own work in similar ways.
We have come to the end of our topic this week but have really enjoyed travelling around the world looking at special buildings and artwork and listening to a variety of traditional music. We have been especially proud of our art work and have enjoyed using a variety of mediums to create our pieces.
Over the last two weeks we have visited Spain and Norway. The children wrote facts about the Sagrada Familiar and the Oslo Opera House. They also created rhyming strings with ay and ain and played bingo games where they had to read and identify the correct word. In maths we looked at 3D shape and used 2D shapes to build pictures. We rolled marbles in paint to create pictures of the northern lights and created cat faces with google eyes.
During science week we grew cress and discussed which objects float or sink.
Last week we started our new topic. We brainstormed what we knew about cats and created rhyming strings with the word 'cat'.
This week we flew to France!
We have been naming 3D shapes, building 3D shapes and printing with 3D shapes. The children have research facts about the Eiffel Tower. They have also created the Eiffel Tower in their construction.
Today we looked at ‘Water lilies and Japanese bridge’ painted by Claude Monet. The children have looked closely at the colours in this painting and reproduced their own version using oil pastels. We also listened to French music during the week.
