Spring 1 in Year 2
Our topic of ‘We Are Authors’ has been a great success with a visit from the poet Ian Bland, wonderful class assemblies and lots and lots of storytelling! We retold the story of ‘Imelda and the Goblin King’ with puppets that we made out of socks, as well as writing the story too. We focused on describing locations and using noun phrases and adjectives. We have been writing poems and working hard to improve our writing. We looked at artwork that tells stories and we worked in the style of Henri Matisse to recreate his image ‘The Fall of Icarus’ using collage. What a busy time we have had in Year 2! Our assemblies were a great success and we have also been making egg shields to stop the eggs breaking when we dropped them from a metre!! The children really enjoyed designing them and testing them out… some eggs were saved and did not break! Then we found out how strong eggs are – we put a whiteboard on top of four eggs and they took the weight of a child! We have also been acting, telling stories through dance, drama and in as many other ways as we can! What a really enjoyable half term, we have learnt a lot about story language and how to make our written work much more cohesive and exciting!
