In Writing this week we have been continuing to learn the actions to our Story Map. We are learning to tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood so that we can verbalise and sequence a story aloud before writing it. As part of our writing lessons this week we have also been learning to write a sentence of three. Using the sentences of three we made WANTED posters. We are hoping that we will be able to track down the Big Bad Wolf soon.
Here are our final Romero Britto pieces. We are very happy with how they turned out. Shortly in Art, we will be looking at warm and cool colours. We look forward to producing some new Artwork to display in the classroom.
This morning it was National Simultaneous Story-time. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. This year our book was… Give me some Space!
Both Year 2 classes listened to a real life astronaut, Charlie read the story.
We really enjoyed listening to Charlie talk about his experiences in space and some his favourite facts.
This week in art we explored the artist Romero Britto. Romero Britto is a Brazilian artist who uses lots of different elements of art including pop art, and graffiti painting in his work, using vibrant colours and bold patterns. We explored different types of lines and then had to draw the letter of our first name in pencil. Once we had outlines it we made some sections in it. After that we used patterns and lines to decorate the inside of our letter. After this part we drew some more lines and patterns to create the background. Once they are finished, you will be able to see our artwork displayed in our classroom 🙂
Here are some progress pictures.
Today we had our Year 2 Mother’s Day Assembly.
We are so proud of our Year 2’s for their amazing effort, singing and speaking. They looked fantastic dressed up as their Mum’s!
We hope all our Mum’s have a very special Mother’s Day and a restful weekend.
We look forward to hearing all of your wonderful stories on Monday.
This week in Year 2 we have been learning about measurement!
We have been measuring objects inside and outside the classroom using rulers, dinosaur foot prints, centi-cubes and pop sticks.
In writing we finished off our holiday recounts and continued learning about describing poems.
In Art we started sketching portraits, we can’t wait to share these with you all.
We have also been practicing for our assembly. We are very excited to be performing it next Friday to the junior school.
Welcome back to Term 2!
