Week 2 Term 2

Welcome to our Week 2 blog. As you can see our Pirate focus is inspiring everyone's imagination, although those sharks looked a bit too realistic!!

This week in music we have been putting our learning about "keeping a beat" into practice with some percussion instruments..great work from our Room 10 orchestra.

In maths we have been exploring all the different ways of making 10 and learning to record these sums ourselves. Watch out for some more ideas in this coming week.

 Friday saw rather a lot of unusual hair styles. ...a great way to raise money for Ronald McDonald House.

 This week we celebrated our  first of our Room 10 friend who has turned 6.

We learnt about mixing primary and secondary colours in art using our hands to mix and print. Take a look at the fun we had helping each other.

We were all very proud of our Mother's Day cards that we made using a finger printing method. You can read our messages about our mums by checking out our most recent posts on the Room 10 Kidzstuff blog...just click on the link to the right of this blog post.
