Today we've explored the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy in the Dreamzone!
We discovered that his inspiration is the beauty of nature around him!
He uses materials such as; mud, stones, leaves, logs, feathers, ice, grass, flowers, sand, snow...anything naturally found in his current environment!
We discussed the colours and materials used, our 'first thoughts' to his artwork, what we like and dislike about his creations and thought of questions we'd like to ask him!
We are excited about creating our own
art in the park tomorrow!
Our Science topic this term is giving us an opportunity to explore animals and their babies!
We have been developing our team working skills by sorting the animals into groups:Mammals, Birds, Amphibians and Reptiles.
Next we set to work matching the animal babies to their adults! We can now name these using the correct scientific vocabulary!
I hope all the Year Two families have had a fantastic Summer and are ready and excited for the creative and fun learning ahead!
Reading plays a BIG part in all aspects of your child's learning so please encourage your child to 'dive into reading!' everyday!
Reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will need to hand in both their reading book and also their yellow reading diary. If your child reads a few pages a day but hasn't finished the book yet please write a comment in the yellow diary to let us know what page they're up to in case it can be competed in school.
I look forward to meeting all families all at the end of the school day this week!
