Ennis Class – Invention Unit ‘The Lost Words’

During the first week of term, the whole school focused on completing an invention unit. This unit was based on ‘The Lost Words’ book. We focused on poetry and wrote poems based on the magpie picture below. We started the unit by gathering lots of descriptive ideas about a magpie, focusing specifically on the magpie’s beak, wings, eyes and tail. We then produced a poem and alongside that a piece of artwork. The children began to draw and paint a magpie’s tail using powder paints. The children mixed their colours and produced beautiful art outcomes.

Please see below some examples of the children’s work.

Ennis Class you should be incredibly proud of yourselves, I know for sure that all of the adults in Year 2 are. We were blown away by your writing and art outcomes.
