Museum Trip

Today, Year 2 went to the Dinosaur Museum in Woodstock. The children behaved brilliantly and thoroughly enjoyed their day learning about Dinosaurs and fossils. This experience will help us with our writing tomorrow and our learning next term.

Special thanks to our parent helpers who helped with the trip today.

The children completed their SATS test this week and did so with a smile. We are incredibly proud of their positive ‘can do’ attitude and determination to do well.

We hope you have enjoyed your weekend in the sun and look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Year 2 Art

This term, the children have been learning about different artists in their Art lessons.

We started off finding out about Vincent Van Gogh and looked at lots of his famous paintings. We decided to recreate his sunflower picture. The children practised drawing sunflowers in their sketch books and then drew it on an A3 piece of paper. Then, the children used powder paints to paint their picture. We will be sharing their paintings with you soon! They are fabulous!!!

This afternoon, we started to learn about another artist called David Hockney. We discussed the similarities and differences between the two artists and looked at one of his pieces in more detail. The children practised sketching the below picture in their sketch book using pencil dictionary skills to add more detail.
