This week we have been looking at expanded noun phrases in literacy. We had chance to work outside in the tipi where the rain gave us good sound effects for the phrases we were trying to create!!
We chose 2 adjectives to describe each noun to create our phrases. Which ones do you like best?
This afternoon we went into the hall and thought about the dilemma that the girl faces in our story, ' The Tunnel'.
We decided to make noises with our voices that we might hear inside a tunnel.... dripping noises, spooky ghostly sounds, tapping noises. Then, we introduced some instruments and used them to make different sounds too. It was rather noisy and loud in the hall!
Afterwards, we couldn't believe it when Mr Williams told us he had found a tunnel in the corridor! We had a dilemma.... do we go through it or not? All the Year 2 children were very brave and fearless, and crept through the tunnel whilst others made noises outside.
We got a real feeling for what it might've been like for the two characters in our story to enter the dark, mysterious tunnel .
What an exciting day we had in 2S ! Today, two Paramedics came to school to tell us all about their job and to answer our questions. We had the opportunity to get inside the ambulance and to see some of the equipment that they use in an emergency. We got to put on special gloves , have our heart rate checked and sit on the bed! We even got to go on the lift at the back! What a great day we had!
We have been learning all about
POP ART. What is pop art? Can
you remember? What words can
describe Pop Art?
We have been learning all about Roy Fox Lichenstein.
Roy Fox Lichenstein was born in New York, America in 1923.
He was very unique in that his style of art looked like it was
from a comic book. He created his artwork using very small
dots and the colours red, blue, yellow and white.
We created our own Pop Art in our sketch books. We wanted to create our art work in the style of Roy Lichenstein. We looked at some examples of comic book art and then wrote some onomatopoeia words in our sketch books.
