Halloween Theme Week
To launch the Halloween theme week the year 1 children investigated number lines, using finger painting to create their own pumpkin number line whilst the year 2 children made number bond broomsticks just to re-cap their number bonds before moving into their addition and subtraction unit. After this we continued the fun.
This terms DT topic was to make a puppet. We spent 2 days investigating, practising, designing and finally making our own Halloween finger puppets. Some children used sewing, some glue and some decided stapling was a convenient way of combining fabrics as this could also be used for the character’s features. We also explored using our fingers in different ways to create spiders on webs and paper pumpkins.
To complete the Halloween approach to the week we spent a day drawing and exploring different pencils and charcoals, as you can imagine we had a few sooty looking faces but we also had some amazing drawings at the end of the day.
