What time is it Year 2?
Friday 30th April | 2 comments
This week we have started to learn how to tell the time. We have focused on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. Please can you reinforce this at home over the next few weeks by asking the children to tell you the time! Thank you.
In English we have been reading more of our class text, charlie and the chocolate factory. This week we have been focusing on the characters from the story. We have been writing character descriptions using lots of amazing right choice words and phrases. We really enjoyed pretending to be Veruca Salt in our role play session!
We also read all about the crazy Indian Prince who asked Willy Wonka to build him a chocolate palace. The children correctly predicted that the chocolate palace would melt in the hot sun! Following this, we planned and carried out a fair test. The children had to decide the best way to investigate “Which chocolate would be best to build a chocolate palace?”
We have also started some lovely art work. We have been looking at the work of Brazilian artist Romero Britto.
Brazilian artist Romero Britto is famous for creating bold, bright modern images. Here is some of his artwork. Do you like it? How would you describe his style?
He uses thick, black lines to create the main images then fills the remaining spaces with colourful patterns. Here is a tulip image in the style of Romero Britto:
We decided to create our own tulip pictures.
Year 2 have been helping to plant some new trees on the field. I wonder how big they will be when the children are in Year 6!?
This week we sent home some workbooks for the children to complete as they wish at home. Please check children’s book bags for further information and see class teachers if you need to know more.
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend. See you on Tuesday!
