Art Week – Art through Weaving
The whole school took part in various weaving activities during Art Week this year. Year 2’s weaving activity was box loom weaving. The children had seen real looms on their recent visit to Armley Mills and then tried their loom- weaving skills in the classroom.
We took our box looms along to the Art Gallery in the school hall at the end of Art Week and invited visitors to try weaving. It was fun being ‘the experts’.
Harvest Assembly led by Year 2
Year 2 led the worship in the whole school Harvest Assembly in October. We shared our thoughts about why we celebrate Harvest time, recited a harvest poem, led the prayers and the whole school joined in with the singing of favourite Harvest songs and hymns.
In Year 2 we believe that developing independence and forming secure relationships are essential in order for the children to travel on their learning journey.
We love to celebrate our faith in God and try to make positive choices in everything we do.
We enjoy new challenges every day and we always try our best no matter how tricky something may be.
We are all special in Year 2!
Victorian Workshop at Armley Mill
This term we have been learning about the Victorians. We went on a trip to Armley Mill. In the morning, we were Victorian school children. The teacher was very strict and we enjoyed writing using dip pens. After lunch, we learned what life was like working in the Mill. It was a very dangerous job for children. Finally, we looked around the mill owner's house and a worker's cottage. We had a great time and all agreed that life is much more enjoyable for children in 2018!
