After our trip to the London Wetland Centre, the children asked if they could research more information on some of the birds or mammals that they had spotted. With this in mind, using laptops to help them, Stingrays class worked in groups to create some fantastic information posters based on an animal/bird of their choice. Here are some examples of their fabulous work:
London Wetland Centre
Stingrays had a great time visiting the London Wetland Centre where they got up close to different birds, watched otters swimming around and met some very interesting creatures!
Our first exciting Topic to start off this year is History-focussed. This interesting unit looks at the Greek and Roman Empires namely: How they link together, the wars that tore the cities apart and what the Roman and Greek eras changed in terms of architecture, politics and culture.
The kick start this Topic the children were asked to work in groups and were given some pictures of Historic buildings. This was the only information that was given to them. They were then given card, paper, glue etc and were asked to create the buildings in 3D. Below are the final pieces which are on display outside Stingrays' classroom. As you can see they've worked hard and created some great masterpieces!
For their IPC logs one of the activities the children had to do was recreate, into 3D, one of the famous Greek monuments. Sam, in Stingrays, created a fantastic masterpiece. See below:
To continue with the Greek theme, the children created their own Greek bowls using the colours that would have been on offer during the Greek era. Below are some examples of what Stingrays have produced.
To finish off this exciting Topic the children created their own Roman mosaics. They cut up paper tiles, draw their Roman art then glued the tiles, cutting them into various shapes so that they fit. They look fantastic on our IPC wall, as you can see below.
