Week 1 & 2

We've had a great start to Year 2! 

So far we have explored our new book 'It's a No-Money Day' which inspired our up-cycled fashion show.

We also did some field work in Victoria park to discover whether the surrounding houses were built in the Victorian era.

It's been an exciting week for art as we have started a school wide project called "Art on the hill" where we are upcycling old records by painting them in the style of local artist Farrah Fortnam. She came into school this week and gave a special assembly demonstrating her work.

Week 3 & 4

Our Art work has progressed, ahead of this years Art on the Hill exhibition. We practised the technique for our brush strokes on black paper 'records', then we painted the real vinyl records with our final designs using acrylic paint. 

Year 2 enjoyed their first music session with Bristol Beacon as part of the Earthsong Project. The children leant some new songs focusing on call and response. 

Term 2 Week 3

It's been a busy coulple of weeks in Year 2 so far  - and it's getting busier!

We had an exciting visit from the Bristol Reptile Encounter. They brought in a corn snake, a tortoise, a bearded dragon, a rainbow python and another really big python! We were very brave and held them all!

Thank you to every one that came to the parent's evenings last week. It was a pleasure to talk about how everyone has settled into Year 2.

We have begun rehearsals for the KS1 Christmas play. Thank you so much for the work that you are all doing in supporting the children in learning their parts for the Christmas play.
