The Evil Pea Strikes

Today when the Year 1/2 chlidren came to school, they found that their classroom had been turned into a crime scene! Using their investigatory skills, they found lots of clues and ... peas. The last clue was a letter from The Evil Pea, claiming responsibility for the terrible mess. 

We decided we would need to write and send a formal letter to Supertato to ask him for help. 

Year 1/2 Yoga 

This afternoon in Year 1/2 we had a go at doing some yoga. We focused on our breathing and stretching and learnt some new yoga positions. We tried the cow pose, lion pose, cat pose and many more. We all felt very relaxed at the end. 

Our Andy Warhol Art

In art this term, we have been looking at Andy Warhol and pop art. We looked at some of his famous work including his portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and Marilyn Monroe. We recreated his repeating pattern work by working in groups to colour in images of his most famous work in different colours and even had a go at creating our own Andy Warhol inspired self-portaits. 


The children used Bee-Bots and 2simple 2go on laptops and computers to help them learn about positional language in maths.
