In Year Two we start to feel very grown up as we are working more independently, learning cursive writing, doing really hard sums with units, tens and hundreds and studying interesting topics about Early People and the Ice Age, Christopher Columbus and the Aztecs. However, we still have time for a lot of fun: drawing, colouring, painting, making things and generally enjoying all the different activities a school such as ours has to offer.
I like the class atmosphere to be relaxed, yet hard working. I encourage the children to express themselves, share their interests and knowledge with all of us in the class.
I believe in a friendly, open environment where boundaries are clearly demarcated, but within which all children have the freedom to learn, develop and enjoy themselves without hindrance.
Year 2 Art
Year 2 did some collaborate art in small groups. We drew pictures with oil pastels to accompany stories we had written about a dragon in a volcano.
Year 2 created some caves for Early People to go with our topic on The Ice Age. We used clay and card and acrylic paint.
