Would you like to be under the sea?

Y2LM's new REAL project is all about being under the sea. Our essential question this term is ' Would you like to be under the sea?'  After visiting the Deep in Hull, a screening of Finding Dory and having a hands on Arts and Crafts day, all the children in Y2 will be working hard towards our very own Art Exhibition in the Unity Centre, Rotherham. To help us achieve this, we are going to research into our very own under sea creatures, create our own collages of our creatures and then type artist statements.

 

Keep coming back and looking at our page to see what we are doing!

Permanent exhibition at the Unity Centre

After our successful art exhibition, the Unity Centre offered St. Ann's School a permanent exhibition on one of their corridors. The Y2 'Under The Sea' art work is the first to be put on display. If you are in the Unity Centre please pop upstairs and have a look at our beautiful work.

Our Sea creature Vlogs

We have been learning how to blog and vlog using the Ipads as part of our learning in ICT.
We filmed ourselves talking about a sea creature that we had learnt facts about.

We hope you enjoy our vlogs!

Our trip to The Deep

We had a wonderful day at The Deep. We started by doing an art workshop, where we did drawing, colouring and sculpting on different under the sea creatures. We then started exploring the different areas including the penguins. After our dinner we continued to explore The Deep and even watched a diver feed the fish! 

To start our REAL project, we began be talking about and writing down things we already know about under the sea and things we would like to know. 

Some things we already know are: 

Sharks, whales, dolphins, jellyfish, turtles and squid live in the sea.

An octopus has three hearts. 

 

Some questions we would like to find the answer to are: 

'Are all sharks the same size?'

'Does it rain in the sea when it rains above it?
