Fly High – Hot Air Balloon Silhouettes

Fly High – Hot Air Balloon Silhouettes

Year 2 have made beautiful hot air balloon silhouettes. This linked in perfectly with our Erasmus+ Project titled ‘Fly High in Europe’

The children began by looking at a selection of photographs of hot air balloons, but specifically silhouettes of hot air balloons. Having already idenitfied warm and cold colours, the children chose to have wither a warm or cold background.

They children then carefully tore a selection of papers in their chosen colours to create the background. At the end they added one contrasting colour.

The children then carefully panted their hot air balloon and this was stuck onto their background.

The finished pieces look amazing! Well done Year 2!

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

During African Day, each class took part in composing, performing and recording an African drum pattern. The children used iPads which allowed them to play authentic sounding African drums by tapping pads to compose and record their pattern.

African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.

We took part in lots of different activities including a penalty shoot-out, nail painting, find the elephant and a raffle. In class, the children made their own African Savannah and African necklaces.
