Edward Wilson Artefacts!
Today we explored some items that belonged to Edward Wilson. We looked at:
- Walking poles he used
- His snow shoes
- His glasses
- His toothbrush
- Some of his paintings
- His tie press
- His pocket watch
We had to think about what the item was, what it would of been used for and what it was made from.
We had some brilliant discussion. Especially about the tie press!
Today we explored painting with water colours. We have been studying the explorer Edward Wilson. On his journey to the South Pole he painted landscapes of the snow and some of penguins using water colours.
We explored using small short strokes to create a wave effect on the paper. We will then add some penguins to our back grounds next week.
Here are some of our creations.

WALT: act our Talk for Write using freeze frames.
Today we had a go at creating freeze frames based on our story Lost and found. We started off by referring to our story map. We split the story into 6 sections and created a ‘freeze frame’ to show what was happening at different parts of the story.
Here are our freeze frames!
On Monday the 9th our classroom was invaded by a Polar Bear! There was balloons, fluff and snow everywhere. Year 1 had been left a story called ‘Please bring Balloons’ by Lindsay ward and a note from the Polar Bear himself asking for balloons. We learned that our new topic is going to be about famous explorers and their adventures all over the world. We used a collaging technique to cover and decorate our balloons for the Polar bears Party. They were really bright and colourful just like the balloons in the story. We also had a go at sequencing the story to try to remember the beginning, middle and end!
We started to look at the explorer Edward Wilson and his journey across the South Pole. We looked at pictures from his adventure and learned about emperor penguins as they were his favourite animal to study. We are looking forward to learning more about him.
