Wow we can’t believe it is June already. Term is flying by in a flash!
Please remember that it is sports day on Tuesday. If it is a hot day please can you put suncream on your child and make sure they have a sunhat and water bottle with them. Thank you.
Well, we have had yet another busy week in P2/3.
At the start of the week the class planted out some more of the vegetables that we have been growing, these included beans, peas and carrots.
We checked on our outdoor transpiration experiments and all found evidence of transpiration inside the plastic bags. Both of our transpiration experiments have been very successful.
We are coming to the end of our Water topic and this week we looked at water artwork by Claude Monet. We used paint to create water artwork in an impressionist style similar to that of Monet. The results were fantastic, we have many budding artists in our class!

For our handwriting we have been practising all of our joins by writing fun song lyrics such as those from ‘Happy’ and Everything is ‘Awesome.’
We are going to be working on our observational drawing over the next few weeks. Today we went outside with P6 and chose wildlife items to study and draw such as trees, nettles, flowers and leaves. Everyone managed to create some detailed observational drawings.
