The children voted for a well earned treat.............an extra play on the field.
Super reading Year 2! Keep it up!
Our last printing session involved creating a cardboard low relief block and then printing using selected colours and surfaces. We certainly had great fun with this art unit and have enjoyed getting very messy too!
It'S hAiRcUt DaY!
Can you explain why, in the last picture, the shoot is white?
We made faces and named our grass heads. Next week they might get a hair cut...
We made a clay slab relief block and then printed with it. We linked our design to this term's topic on plants.
Using the 3 primary colours, we used the technique of overprinting to make a multi layered design.
Here are some photos of our bean seeds on day 8. We have used scientific language to make observations and have completed our first measurement!
Fourth 500 Reading Points Achieved
On Monday 26th April, Year 2 achieved their fourth 500 points for reading regularly at home. Most points had already been collected before the end of term 4 at the beginning of April.
The children voted for another well earned treat............teddies in school for the afternoon.
Great reading everyone! Keep it up!
During our first science lesson, the children explored the different parts of a plant (flowers and trees) and recreated these using natural objects outside.
Our Art unit for this term is PRINTMAKING.
We have learned to tear and print using positive and negative stencils. Using small amounts of paint on a foam sponge we practised 2 new techniques- stippling and stroking. We took great care to stroke outwards from the centre of the negative stencil and stroke from the outside to the centre using the positive stencil.
