Year 2 Murray – Pumpkin Soup
This week we have started a new story, Pumpkin Soup. So far we know that there are three characters; the cat who chops the pumpkin, the squirrel who stirs in the water and the duck who scoops up a pinch of salt and tips in just enough. In small groups we then took it in turns to be the characters and acted it out their different jobs. The children were brilliant at being imaginative in how they could be the cat, the squirrel or the duck. For art, we then looked at how we could sketch a pumpkin and how we could add additional details onto the pumpkins by using pencil dictionary sketching skills.
