This week Team 2 took their learning outside. We looked for different textures in the environment and discussed natural and man made materials. We looked for different colours around the woodland and made an autumn artists palette. Then we looked at the work of different land artists for example Andy Goldsworthy. First we collected natural materials, then we planned and made our sculpture. We went on a sculpture walk and also invited our parents to share our work.
Week ending 6th October
This week Team 2 visited Donington le Heath Manor House to find out about life in the 1600's. We listened to the story about Cap of Rushes a servant girl. Then we carried out the duties of a servant. We dusted the house using feathers, swept the floor with stick brooms and washed the clothes in a big wooden bucket. We learnt how to weave and looked at fabrics and clothes the 1600's. We ground salt and beans while the pig roasted on the fire. By the end of the day we decided that it would have been hard living in 1600's without the modern equipment we have today. We enjoyed a taste of the past.
Week ending 22nd September
Team 2 have enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London. Magic Grandad took us back to 1666 and we watched Samuel Pepys writing in his diary. We learnt the houses were made of wood and straw and built very closely together. In 1666 there was no fire brigade and people used leather buckets filled with water, water squirts and fire hooks to help control the fire. Most of London was burnt down.
