Clay Houses

In Art we have been looking at texture.  Around our school we found lots of interesting textures.  We took rubbings using crayons and used our rubbings to create pictures.  This technique is called ‘Frottage’.

History Day

Year 2 had a great time during our History off the page day.
We took part in a range of activities to explore the jobs people did in the past.
We even caught some rats!
In the afternoon we were archaeologists – searching for artefacts in the soil and investigating what they could teach us about the past.

Pinch Pots

In Art we have been developing our skills when using clay.
We have learnt to use a pinch technique to make a simple pot.  We then added some detail to our pots by manipulating clay in different ways to make shapes.  We made a mixture called ‘slip’ and used it to attach our shapes to our pots.

In Art we have been looking at collage.
We selected and used a mixture of rubbings and materials to create pictures.  We thought carefully about which colours and textures would work well together.

Year 2 have been learning all about patterns.
We explored patterns in our classroom and learnt about a range of natural and man-made patterns.
We then used a range of objects to create a series of patterns of our own.
