Year 2 Assessment Information Evening, Wednesday 6th February 2019
Today we enjoyed a special music lesson with exciting activities all about the story Handa’s Surprise. We made detailed observational drawings of fruit cross-sections using oil pastels, we played Handa bingo, we retold the story using the story stones and African instruments and we also had a go at notating our own rhythms.
Trip to Durdham Downs
Year 2 had a fantastic time on their recent trip to the Downs. They created pieces of artwork, inspired by Andrew Goldsworthy, using natural materials found nearby. They also learned about creatures that may live on the Downs, and made clay models of these animals.
Year 2 are thoroughly enjoying their Mexican topic this term. They are busily rehearsing a Mexican Hat dance which they will perform to parents at the end of term. Part of those preparation involved them learning about traditional customs, traditions and local dishes. This week we made and tasted salsa and guacamole.
