26.11.21 Science and Sketching

25 Nov 2021


Alongside reading our individual and group practise books, we also enjoy a Guided Reading session each week. In these lessons, we all work together to share and read the same book. We focus on different aspects of reading such as finding the meaning of words or retrieving and recording information from the text. Sometimes we predict what might happen in a story. On Tuesday, we focussed on a non-fiction text, called 'The Really Amazing Animal Book'. We thought about the features of non-fiction texts and how the content is different to fiction books. Then, we used the book to find information about a selection of different animals.

We then continued exploring animals in our science lesson. There was more classifying and grouping this week, as we considered the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates. We found out that vertebrates are animals that have a backbone. We looked at some x-ray pictures and we could see the bones in the animals. We had fun guessing which animals were in each of the x-rays. Then, we looked closely at the details in the pictures and used our drawing skills to record some of the animals that are vertebrates.

We have began to explore artistic tools this week by using pencils and charcoals. The children have really enjoyed experiementing with the different resources and have produced some lovely pieces of work. We looked at the detail in a charcoal drawing then thought about how the artist has created such a realistic animal. The children discussed what techniques could have been used. We then applied this understanding to our work with charcoals. We pressed lightly to draw an outline of a wolf and harder to create darker areas. After we blended from the dark area to the lighter areas using our fingers.
