Welcome to P2!
It is lovely to have everyone back at school again.
Our first topic is 'Houses and Homes'. We have been learning about different types of houses, how houses are built, the materials that houses are made from and houses around the world. We looked at how houses and home appliances have changed over the years.
We explored 'Houses and Homes' through play based activites and topic lessons. We really enjoyed making house collages, building different types of houses with lego and craft straws. We also brought in junk materials to use to build house models. We worked on our technology skills as we considered different ways of attaching materials. We looked at Van Gogh's bedroom painting and rereated it using oil pastels. Have a look at some of the things we made!
We loved playing the 'Head bands' game where we asked each other questions about different types of houses. We had to guess what house was on our head band.
We were so pleased with our house junk models - we used masking tape to help us attach the different parts and we cut out doors and windows.
In our maths lessons we have been sorting objects using Overlapping Venn diagrams. Have a look at some of the things we were sorting and have a guess at what we chose as our criteria.
In literacy we have been working on our letter formations. In our phonics lessons we have been learning all the different sounds in the alphabet and are using them in 3 letter words. We really like using our whiteboards and have been working on putting words into sentences on them.
