Year 2: Terrific Tigers

Mrs Patrick teaches our Terrific Tigers.

Our Summer 1 Topic is The Scented Garden

Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. 
Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers.

 

 

We started our new theme with a WOW DAY. The children created artwork based on Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol. They also had the opportunity to plant cress and sunflower seeds for our Science investigations.

 

 

 

In English we looked at the Secret Garden and inteviewed the little robin who flew over the wall and saw the garden. He described the secret place he'd visited. Tigers demostrated great imagination during this Hot Seating activity!
