We have had another brilliant and busy week in year 2. We have continued to develop our knowledge of ‘collage’ in Art this week and focused particularly on Henri Matisse’s ‘The Snail’ in which the children each created their own wonderful snail collage inspired by this piece.
We were also very lucky to have a Circus Skills workshop earlier this week where the children had the opportunity to try out lots of circus activities and learn numerous incredible tricks! We all thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and it was lovely for the children to have some time out of the classroom where they could be silly and have lots of fun!
We have had two wonderful weeks in Year 2 in which the class have settled in incredibly well and have gotten stuck into their work with great enthusiasm!
We begun looking at our first text in Literacy, ‘Frog and the Stranger’ and the children are thoroughly enjoying it. We are in the process of writing multi-clause sentences with conjunctions to describe the sequence of events.
We had our first art lesson on Thursday in which we began focusing on ‘collage’. The children had a chance to make their own mini collages and do some painting which will be put towards a whole class collage project which we begin next week!
We also came up with lots of exciting ideas about other collages the children would like to make throughout this half term and will hopefully be able to find time to squeeze this into our busy week!
Miss Fletcher and Mrs Malik have been so impressed with the children’s determination and energy these past two weeks and are very much looking forward to the rest of this half term in Year 2!
