This term, we have been continuing with our topic ‘can we live without a supermarket?’ In science we investigated the difference between fruits and vegetables. We labelled the different parts of a plant and then thought about the vegetables we eat and which part they are. In literacy we wrote instructions for planting seeds and then read these to a partner. We also looked at the story ‘Oliver’s vegetables’. We planned our own version and then made puppets and acted it out. The children wrote some brilliant stories using adjectives! We have now started the story ‘Handa’s surprise’ and will be writing our own versions after half term.
In art, we have been learning about the artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo. We drew our own self-portraits using his style of work. The following week we went outside and used many different things from nature to create our faces. They all had completely original ideas and the faces looked great. In DT, we practiced our weaving skills and made brightly coloured place mats using this technique.
