Muck, Mess and Mixtures

This half term our learning will be centred around British wildlife and habitats. We will have the opportunity to explore different materials through art and science- be prepared to get really messy!

Some of the key elements that we will explore as a class will be:

Predators and prey- Who eats what and why.

Food chains- How is energy passed from one organism to another.

Survival- What do all living things need to survive, what happens if an element is taken away?

Observational drawing

Sculpture

Painting and drawing

 

We are learning about the majestic Barn Owl and its place in British wildlife. We have used books and technology to gather information about this fascinating creature so that we can write an information leaflet. When we have finished our reports we are going to post them to the RSPB for their approval- You may see us featured on the next David Attenborough series!

Look at our incredible oil pastel owl portraits. We took care to select our colours and then practised blending.

Here we are investigating an Owl Pellet for our learning about predators and prey- super interesting, really gross!

We have learned how to join pieces of clay together using the slip and stick method. It is an important technique to use otherwise our incredible creations could fall apart. I think you will agree that there has never been such an incredible cluster of clay owls made in year two before!

Here we are writing our non-chronological leaflets about the barn owl- This is our neatest and most incredible writing yet! We have used fronted adverbials, adjectives and some of us have even used commas in a list. We hope you can come into school to see our learning on display, we are really proud of ourselves, as you can see!

This week has been filled with exciting science investigations and activities. We have been looking closely at habitats and microhabitats, and what makes something alive.

Here are a few pictures from our investigation into microhabitats. We made predictions, measured our results and then reasoned with our findings.
