Welcome to Crocodiles & Sharks
As part of a whole school project, Crocodiles and Meerkats have used Claude-Oscar Monet’s beautiful painting, “The Water-Lily Pond,” as a stimulus for some creative art and written work.
Crocodiles enjoyed researching facts about a variety of garden wildlife animals. They made some fabulous posters and used their new found knowledge to write a report about their chosen creature. They used their imaginations to create exciting adventure stories in which their characters were magically transported into Monet’s picture! Although Year 2 children have been incredibly busy with Key Stage 1 Assessments they have all taken part in a series of Monet themed art and craft sessions. We hope that you will attend our forthcoming exhibition and take the opportunity to come and view this incredible work with your children!
Next term, Crocodiles will begin a new topic called ‘Home, Sweet Home.’ They will be looking at animal habitats and how plants and creatures have adapted to live in them. To kick start this fascinating topic, Year 2 took a trip to The Deep in Hull to look at how marine life has developed through the ages. It was an amazing day with lots of wonderful things to see and talk about. In addition to our topic, the children will also be taking part in some exciting transition work with Rosehill Junior School, so watch this space!
Next term, Meerkats will be looking at Castles and as part of this topic, they will be visiting Conisbrough Castle – how exciting is that!
