In ECU1 we are learning colours and shapes vocabulary. This week we were working on White Circles. The children had fun, sticking white circular cotton wool pads on the different coloured paper, experimenting also with different textures.
Separating mixtures, using filtering techniques
Science is an integral part of modern culture. It stretches the imagination and creativity of young people. Its challenges are quite enormous.

Year 2 have been finding out about the life of Joan Miro. We looked at a timeline of his life, dicussed the most important parts and had a look at some of his work. We then made a timeline of his life in our jotters and added information from memory to it. We now know lots about him and his life!
It’s all rather a rush this week. Finishing art work but that’s always quite goos fun. Apart from that we are doing practice papers for the exams. Not long now!
Year 2 have been recreating and designing their own Miro pictures. We painted on the bright blocks of bold color first and then added the black lines in with oil pastel once the paint was dry. Don´t they look great!
Continue to share the great work from World Maths Day, here are more pictures of secondary pupils completing their 15 minute challenge to build the tallest tower that would hold a tennis ball made from straws. Starting with 200 points students lost 5 points for every straw used and gained points for every centimetre high it was.
Last Tuesday 6th March in ECU3 we joined in with the World Spelling Day activities listening to and attempting to write simple dictation using our jolly phonic knowledge. We also enjoyed using the starfall website for simple spelling of CVC words.
On Wednesday 7th March in ECU3 we joined in with the World Maths Day, by talking about positional language, then we enjoyed skittles on the playground recording our results on paper. Then in the afternoon we made a maths collage from magazines of different shapes and numbers.
