In science this term we are learning about the main animal groups. We discussed the names of common animals in each group and thought of other animals that fit into each group. We used the sorting hoops to place the animal pictures into the correct groups: mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and birds.
We enjoyed dancing and singing in this year's nativity with year 2 and reception class. We were angels singing to Mary, shepherds and sheep asleep on the hillside, travellers and donkey on the way to Bethlehem and camels and leaders. Well done Class 1, you were superb!
We using a simple sewing stitch to join two pieces of felt together to make a puppet. After we decorated our puppets to look like elves. We gave them felt waistcoats and hats with a bell and a feather on. We used glue to attached the materials.
We visited Father Cosmas at Our Lady of the Rosary church and he talked to us about baptism. We role-played the baptism of a child and some of us were the child's godparents. Father Cosmas baptised the child pouring holy water on the head saying "I baptise you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."
We developed our drawing skills by sketching a variety of toys from the 1980s. We used pencils to observe and accurately draw the toys then we experimented with colours using oil pastels.
