Environmental art

Wow what an exciting afternoon we’ve had today. We have been looking at environmental art by one of the best known British land artists Richard Long.

We started our work by collecting twigs, leaves and anything else we could find in the natural areas around our playground. We then worked in pairs to create our own pieces of environmental art. Year 2 were fantastic at collaborating to make some very interesting masterpieces!

P.S. Sorry if your children have come home a bit grubby today!!

Road Safety Officer visits Year 1 & 2 children

Welcome back, I have loved being back in class with your children today!

We are starting 2014 with a safety themed week and today Year 1 and 2 were given a very interesting talk by a Road Safety Officer. They learnt all about how to stay safe on the roads when they are walking, in a car or on a bicycle. The children were taught how to cross the road, that it is important to sit in a car chair or booster seat and that they must always wear a bicycle helmet to stay safe. They had lots of fun and then came back to the classroom to design their own road safety signs. Great job year 2, you are road safety experts now!
