Remembrance - Key Stage 1 took time to remember those who gave their lives for us. All the children observed a two minute silence, learnt about the life of a solider and created their own artwork to show remembrance.
2B have been busy making their clay tiles in the shape of a house ready to display them in Mansfield Museum. The children experimented with making patterns in the clay as well as adding extra features onto their tile. The tiles are currently being fired in the kilns and then we will give them a glaze before they are displayed.
On World Book Day class 2B enjoyed taking part in lots of activities linked to some of our favourite books. We dressed up in our comfortable pyjamas and had hot chocolate and popcorn. The children had the opportunity to make Gruffalo inspired biscuits, Gruffalo puppets and had a wonderful story telling session from 'Tales of the Heartwood'.
Museum visit 1 - Year 2 walked down to Mansfield Museum to explore the paintings by Albert Sorby Buxton. We wanted to compare the historical paintings of Mansfield to what Mansfield looks like today. The children thought it was very strange that hens were wandering around the streets. We then unveiled our upcoming project; to produce artwork that will also go on display in the same room as the paintings we looked at. We're all very excited to see the finished exhibition!
Class 2B were learning about statistics in maths. They had lots of fun investigating which is the most common colour in a bag of M and Ms. The children recorded the information on tally charts, pictograms and block diagrams. We even got to taste a couple!
Class 2K have been making tally charts to show the different coloured M&Ms in pot. We even got to eat them afterwards. Yum!
