    DT/ Theme

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We are really pleased with how fabric 3D flowers are turning out. It has been a long process. We tie dyed the fabric last term, used a template to cut out the shapes, stuck these to felt, cut them out and now finally we are joining the flowers using running stitch!

    Year 2 investigated gardens in the past. We looked at gardens from ancient Egypt, Iraq, Greece, Rome and then moved forward to a Medieval garden. We noticed that garden produced lots of food and fruits as well as providing shade and a place to relax.

    Year 2 looked at the art of William Morris. He created lots of patterned prints which contained a lot of nature. We spotted lots of birds, leaves and flowers. When then designed our own print which we will use soon to create prints.

    Computing

    Year 2 looked at different ways the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears can be presented using technology. We saw that an ebook is interesting because it can include sounds and actions. We saw that a quiz can be really fun. Finally, we found out that a concept map can be a really clear way of presenting different elements of a story such as plot, characters and setting.
