Year 2 were very lucky last week, as we got to do some art with an artist! We created beads made of clay and sequin balls. We asked the artist questions about being an artist and she showed us some of her amazing art work!
Here are some photos of our arty afternoon:
Bradley- I love using clay!
Isra- These sequins are pretty.
Lah-nee – We got to meet a real artist!
Year 2 have had a fun first week back after the half term. Today, we started our new geography topic ‘ What will we see on our journey around the world? We enjoyed locating the continents and oceans on our own maps. We can’t wait to explore our new topic and to begin our journey around the world!
Here are some photos of us making a giant world map:

This week Year 2 have really enjoyed looking at ways to keep healthy and be active. On Wednesday afternoon the children got the chance to taste five different fruits that they may not have eaten before: cherry, pomegranate, passion fruit, grapefruit and lychee. Most of the children found one or more new fruits that they enjoyed eating!
Also the children made fruits cups using the fruit they brought in. They very carefully sliced up the fruit and layered them in the cups. Thank you for bringing in such a great range of fruit.
We have made lots of exciting things with Miss Hopkins!
We decorated our own mini pots, designed our own mugs and even painted with salt!
Here are some pictures of us decorating our pots!
