Joan MirĂ³ - October 2021, by Miss Sullivan

Date: 27th Oct 2021 @ 5:01pm

In Art, we have been learning about the Spanish artist Joan Miró. We looked at some of his paintings before creating our own. Using a black pastel, we drew an abstract design before filling it with paint. We learned about the primary colours of red, yellow and blue before mixing them to create the secondary colours of orange, green and purple. We also watched an animation based on The Garden and coloured in a similar picture. Finally, we used some of Miró's surrealist images to create our own original drawings. Miss Sullivan was super impressed with all of our efforts. Like great artists, the children took home their original pieces so now only prints are available on a display in school and in the children's Topic books.

Drama - October 2021, by Miss Sullivan

Date: 27th Oct 2021 @ 4:45pm

Our book in English is all about a troll and a little girl who swap homes. To help us with our writing, the children paired up and took it in turns to be the troll and the little girl when they first met. The children were amazing at getting into character to be a quiet, tidy troll and a very noisy, messy girl.

Using Numicon - October 2021, by Miss Sullivan

Date: 27th Oct 2021 @ 4:39pm

In Year 2, it is really important to use equipment so that we can 'see' the Maths. We have Maths boxes available containing money, cubes, Base 10, shapes and dice. We also use Numicon regularly and here you can see how we are making number bonds to 5 and 10. It is vital that we know our number bonds because we will use them in every day life.

Linked to our English stories about trolls, each child made tints by adding a colour to white in Art. We then added googly eyes to bring our troll to life!

Celebrating our Individuality - October 2021, by Miss Sullivan

Date: 27th Oct 2021 @ 2:55pm

To celebrate our individuality, we all drew around and decorated our hands. As the dazzling display states: "We are all unique and beautiful but together we are a masterpiece." What a wonderful year it is going to be in Year 2 and we can't wait to see what each child aspires to be...

Computing in Year 2 - September 2021, by Miss Sullivan

Date: 27th Oct 2021 @ 2:50pm

Year 2 are using Scratch to learn about programming. After learning about giving accurate instructions, the children chose a sprite of a boat and created a sprite of an island before selecting a background of the sea. Over the coming weeks, they will learn how to program the boat to sail to the Caribbean island of Trinidad.
