Phew! What a busy term we have had so far in Form 2.
We have been really enjoying our new topic ‘Habitats’.
We started out with a walk up the river on a wildlife safari. We saw loads of amazing creatures in their natural habitats including spiders, caterpillars, beetles and 9 baby ducklings!
We had a lovely time and on the way back we stopped off in Salisbury Fields for a quick play on the climbing frame.
Later on in the term, we went out and collected leaves and made some beautiful leaf Art.
Our next Art topic was looking at the work of local South West artist Yvonne Coomber. We had lots of fun using brushes, toothbrushes and cotton buds to create these amazing paintings in her beautiful style. The children want to sell them for £100! We are open to offers.
We love baking in Form 2 and have made mini beast biscuits which we think look as delicious as they tasted. Next we decided to make cakes without using recipes or instructions. YIKES! It was a messy affair, but they looked fab and tasted absolutely yummy.
We have spent a lot of time outside and have made bug hotels in the grounds to attract insects, and helped Liz plant lots of new trees as we have been learning about the importance of trees in our Science lessons. Also in Science we have set up an experiment to see what seeds need to grow. Water? Soil? Air? or warmth? Each group planted 2 seeds, one in a control pot and the other without the variants. We cannot wait to see the results.
Next week we will finish off our topic with a trip to Borough Gardens to explore the park habitat and watch ‘A Bug’s Life’.
