Year 2 Blog
During Art Week, we were very fortunate to receive a visit from a 'real life' artist, Fern Whittle. Fern, whose artist name is Fern and Moose, weaves beautiful wall hangings. Before her visit, the children thought of lots of questions to ask her about the wall hangings and how she learnt to make them. The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to Fern explain her inspiration and the weaving process. They then watched a weaving demonstration before having a go themselves. The finished results are wonderful! We are very grateful to Fern for finding the time to visit us. If you would like to view Fern's work, you can see her wall hangings displayed at Moss and Moor Garden Centre and you will be able to see the children’s creations on the Year 2 Gallery over the next few days.
As part of our topic learning about significant individuals, we learnt that Christopher Columbus brought back many 'new' foods to Europe from his travels to the Americas. This inspired us to practise chopping and cutting skills to make a fresh Salsa. The children used a claw grip and a bridge grip to safely cut tomatoes, onions, limes and coriander.
In addition, the children made models of a vehicle that an explorer might use using recycled materials.
