Our Class:

Year 2 is when children blossom and grow as independent learners. Through our  topics of Heroes and Heroines, An Eye on London and Rainforests the children explore all areas of the curriculum.


There are a number of class trips throughout the year to support and inspire our learning outside of the classroom. During the summer term the children have the opportunity to go on a mini school journey to Arethusa. This is a fabulous time for everyone involved as the children experience different activities and get to showcase their talents.

Art: In Art over the past two weeks we have been learning about the famous American artist Georgia O'Keefe and recreating our own drawings of flowers in her unique style. We have produced beautiful art work in pencil, oil pastel and water colour.

Here are some photographs of the children completing their first sketches on Greenland Hill.






Next we added colour to our sketches using a variety of techniques. We experimented with water colour paints, watercolour pencils and oil pastels to see the different effects they produced.
