Hello Foxes!  It's nearly the last week of term!

Here are some of them!

Have a great week - speak to you soon. 

Mrs Percy xx 

 

Hello Foxes! There is a zoom meeting this coming week on Thursday 16th July at 16.00 p.m.

This is our chance to get together for the final time before our school year finishes!     

I have a little task for you to do!   

 

Can you create a fox design and bring it with you to the meeting? You can use whatever art materials you choose. Here is an example of one I did and other ideas: 

 

  

  

Look forward to seeing you all on Thursday! Love from Mrs Percy & Mrs Millar xx

Dear Foxes, 

 

We said good bye to Violet this week! I know lots of you said goodbye the other week to her on Zoom and she was really pleased to see you all. We wish her lots of luck in her new school and hope she will keep in touch with us.

 

As you know she loves to draw and doodle so we gave her a sketchbook and some sketching pencils. We put some of her drawings around a photo of her: 

 

 

Goodbye Violet! We will miss you.

Hello again Foxes!  We hope you enjoyed the STEM challenges this week. 

We learnt about all types of robots and the different jobs they did.  We looked at the artist and sculpture Terry Collier who uses spare parts to make robots. We evaluated some of his designs thinking about what we liked and disliked. After that we drew one of his robots.  

                                                   

Finally, we were given a design challenge and were asked to solve a problem.

 

The question was:

''Mrs Percy needs a robot to help her with.................."      

These were a few of our ideas:

  • walking the dog
  • making her lunch
  • tidying the classroom
  • doing the shopping

 

If you wanted to design your own robot and send it in then we would love to see them.   

 

Have a great weekend everyone. Keep safe!  

Love from Mrs Percy & Mrs Millar xx

Hello Foxes! Another week has flown by. I hope you are all well?

 

We hope you enjoyed the nature journals. We did leaf and bark rubbings and took lots of photos of the trees and bushes. We also learnt abut different grasses and identified butterflies in our surrounding area. 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope you enjoyed Superhero week too!! Here are some of our designs:

We watched the cartoon SuperTed and looked lots of different Superheroes. We also talked about what makes a person a Superhero. Is it just because they have a special power or could it be a person who is brave and kind? 

 

We hope to speak to you all again soon. Love from Mrs Pecry & Mrs Millar xx 

Monday 29th June 2020

Hello Foxes! Here my jar filled with a few of the things I like to do. The task I sent you for Wednesday's Zoom meeting is called All About Me. So have a think about things you have been proud of this year, things that interest you and some of your favourite things. See if you can fill your jar and colour it in! I am looking forward to seeing them on Wednesday. Have fun! 

 

NATURE JOURNALS

 

We have started looking at nature journals at school this week. So I thought I would post it on here for you to download if you wanted to. We started looking at leaves this week and have been leaf rubbing and sketching leaves. You could decorate the front with different wildlife and plants. I have added some poster to help you to identify different things. Have fun!

Hello Foxes! We hope you've all had a great week? It was lovely to catch up with some of you this week and hear about what you've been doing. 50

Alice has sent in a picture of an experiment she completed from her Rainbow Lab. She made some white flowers turn different colours using food colouring and water. Do any of you know what this process is called? Something to find out perhaps. She also split one of the stems to see if it would turn into two colours.  

We have been colouring Monarch butterflies and then we hung them in the window. We hope you like them?

Hello lovely Foxes! We hope you all had a great weekend?

There were some fantastic VE Day celebrations in South Wonston on Friday. Did you spot these lovely garden-pot people in the village? What a wonderful display? I wonder who it belongs to? smiley

 

It was a bit colder today in school and very windy at times. The children enjoyed designing, making and then flying boomerangs. They also made and raced potato hedgehogs using a potato, twigs, string and a water bottle.  

  

You can just about see the boomerangs in the sky in the above picture. 

 

I have read three chapters of Fantastic Mr Fox today. I thought it was time to finish this book we started in Guided Reading. I will put that on the reading section of the website shortly. There's not much left to go. 

 

Don't forget to go onto TT Rockstars! There are battles against badgers and otters class as well as girls vs  boys. Try to spend a bit of time on here over the next few weeks if you can!

 

Reading is really important too - so don't forget to READ, READ, READ. You can also let us know about any exciting books you have read!

I managed to get out today with my son and our dog. We had a lovely walk and took some great  photos of the countryside around our school. 

 

I've been thinking about reading a book - but can't decide which one to choose! Have you been reading?

If you want to share one that you chose - then I'd love to hear about it. Perhaps you could complete a book review and send that in to me? Why you chose it? What was your favourite part of the book? What character did you like and why? If you could invent a new character - what would the character be?  

 

Here is some of your amazing work! Keep sending them in - Mrs Millar and I love to see them.

Art Activities Year 2/3 - April 27th 2020

Friday 24th April 2020

 

Hello Foxes! It's Friday. smiley

We hope you are enjoying the activities on Purple Mash and My Maths? Thank you to Bella for sending in her Easter Egg Box. What a fantastic design - well done!  

 

  

 

 

Don't forget there are plenty of art things to do from the pack that was sent to you on Wednesday.

You could make your own elastic band sketchbook to keep your work in and personalise them with lots of decoration.  

You could use the following materials, if you have them: 

A large elastic band (depending on the size of sketchbook you want to make) paper, carboard, brown paper, white paper, recycled paper etc. 

How to make it:  

1. Start off by collecting different papers - recycled paper, white paper, graph paper, brown paper...

2. You will need corrugated cardboard forthe cover, and an elastic band to fasten it all together.   

3. Whatever size sketchbook you want to make, cut out a piece of corrugated cardboard which is twice as wide as

    the finished book

4. Bend it in the middle to form a spine.

5. Next cut a series of pages, again twice the width of the finished book.

6. Fold these in half too, then simply use the elastic bands to fasten it all together.
