Titanic

We have really enjoyed finding out about the events of Titanic's maiden voyage in 1912.  Curiously, we have been finding out extra facts and eagerly sharing these with each other.  We would like to thank all the parents and carers for their support with our trip,  the home learning, dressing up your children as passengers and crew and coming to our Titanic Exhibition on Friday.  We have thoroughly enjoyed this topic and are now experts on the 'unsinkable' ship!

 

Here is a selection on our learning throughout the topic. 

Our Home Learning - Titanic - Will they float or sink?

Messages Home!

We've been away on our pirate ships for 3 months now with no communication with the outside world! We decided to write letters to our families to explain what it is REALLY like to be a pirate.  Is it all swashbuckling and treasure? 

 

Pirates on the Loose!!

 

Beware... there are pirates rooming so Year 2 have made wanted posters and put them around school.  They have included a picture and lots of description.  If you see them, please report to Year 2!

                          Dragon Delivery! 

A parcel arrived at school today and it looked burnt and ripped.  We were concerned about what might be inside!  When we opened it up, there was a little, baby dragon inside!

Meet Fireball! 

We suggested names for the dragon and voted as a class to choose our favourite - the most popular name was Fireball.  In our English lesson we wrote questions to ask Fireball, which we punctuated with question marks.  We then wrote her answers as statements, punctuated with full stops.  

Also in English, we have written instructions for how to send Fireball home! 

In out Science learning we have investigated different materials in order to provide a bed, home and parcel for Fireball.  We had to think about the properties of these materials and gave reasons for our choices.  Have a look at the photos below to see some of our learning.  

 

Owl Class become News Reporters

Today, we became news reports and reported on the events of the Great Fire of London.  We thought about the 5P's (Power, Pace, Pitch, Pause and Punctuation) in order to make our performance better.

The Great Fire of London

Today, we recreated the Great Fire of London and watch the fire jump from house to house.  The children made buildings from 1666 and we then created the city of London.  We were amazed at how quickly the fire spread and how quickly houses went from standing tall to a pile of ashes.

We wrote news paper reports to report this awful event.  We imagined we were in 1666 and the fire had just happened. 

Art Week

As part of our art’s week, we looked at the pop artist Andy Warhol. We looked at his life and his style of screen printing which created a new type of art. We noticed that he used bright colours and repeating patterns using iconic people or everyday objects such as soup tins, cereal boxes, and bath ducks.

We started the week by using bright colours on the repeated image to create our own pop art. We then used polystyrene tiles to make our print. We added bright paint to the print and then rolled it onto the paper.

We put all our prints together to create a class pop art of our class animal. Take a look through to see our journey.

We look forward to showing you our work on Friday afternoon.
