Liverpool World Museum
For our school trip we have been to Liverpool World Museum. We had an astronaut George experience in the planetarium, some of the class pretended to be stars and others had blow up planets. We then had a look round the museum, in the bug house and at the dinosaur exhibit. Finally we had a under the sea activity and we touched a starfish and a crab. We had a fantastic day!
We have really enjoyed our topic dinosaurs. We have been palaeontologists, created our own dinosaur habitats, created our own fossils using salt dough, created our own dinosaur eggs, acted out the story of Harry and the bucketful of dinosaurs and have created our own version of this. Take a look at some of the pictures below to see how much we have enjoyed thins topic.
In art we created our own masks using lots of different materials, we could either create a superhero or a villain. We then wrote about our masks including giving them a name and super powers.
In art we have been using wax crayons to create our self-portraits. We had to draw and colour the other half of our faces but remembering to focus on where our different features are on our faces are.
We have been reading the story Knuffle Bunny in English this week and on Friday we brought in our won teddies to describe. Here is some of our writing along with a picture of our teddy.
In English we have been recognising and using adjectives. We have created descriptions of ourselves for our topic Marvellous Me, remembering to use adjectives.
In Maths we have been recognising 2D shapes. One morning we went on a shape hunt inside and outside of school. We found lots of 2D shapes.
