Muck Mess & Mixtures (Art Focus):
We have started this term with Muck Mess & Mixtures which focusses lots on art. In English the children will be using Mr Messy's story to help them understand the basic structure of a story (opening, build up, problem, resolution and ending). During writing children are reminded to use their phonics and to punctuate their sentences. We will look at describing different Mr Men using adjectives and verbs. The skills the children learn on basic story structure, adjectives and verbs will help them towards writing their own Mr Man story! In Maths we are currently focussing on place value. The children have looked at identifying and making two digit numbers using base 10. In Science we are focussing on properties of Materials. The children will identify, label and sort different materials into groups. For Art we have been experimenting with different painting skills. The children created pictures by mixing paints together and using a paint brush to create patterns. They have also created pictures using bubble paint! We also learn about the artists Carl Warner and Vincent Van Gogh. We will research the artists and compare their work.
RE: The chosen people
We will be looking at and comparing the story of Abraham and Moses. We will learn about the jobs God asked Moses and Abraham to do and why God trusted them with these jobs.
In Maths we used Base 10 to help us identify the place value of two digit numbers:
7.9.2020 - In Art we mixed different colour paints together and used a paint brush to create rainbows.
