This week we created a wonderful Great Fire of London collage which complements both our History and Art topics. The children worked very hard to draw and cut their own city skyline and tear tissue paper into fire-like strips in order to create a very effective piece of art!
In Art this week, we focused on the work of Henri Matisse and his collage 'The Snail'. The children worked together on a collaborative project which they used to create their own version of the famous piece.
This week, Year 2 were very lucky to have History off the Page come into school to teach us all about the Great Fire of London. The children got to make their own candles, write with ink that they created and have a go at creating some healing concoctions. The children were very well behaved and we all had an excellent day!
