Please help your child and reinforce their learning at home.

Here's an example:

 

16+4=20

4+16=20

20-16=4

Colour Mixing in Year 2 October 2014

IMG 0236Year 2 have been learning how to use primary colours to make secondary colours in art this week. Ask your child to see if they can remember the primary colours, the secondary colours and how to make them. You could even try to paint a masterpiece with your year 2 art genius. Go on, get creative. They absolutely loved it, learned lots and were able to describe how to make the colours to help each other.

You can see their work on display in our classroom.  IMG 0246IMG 0223

Year 2 visited Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to experience the Marvellous Machines of Rowland Emmet as part of out thematic unit on "FLIGHT." The children were really well behaved on our bus trip to town and as we walked across town. Their behaviour was so good that they made all the adults going to work and shopping smile.

They particularly enjoyed the exhibition to the left entitled, " A Pleasant Afternoon out in Cloud Cuckoo Land."
