Topics

Last Half Term:

We started in Year 2 learning all about Hawks. We learnt lots of interesting facts about Hawks and completed some beautiful, detailed art work. 

We then moved onto the topic of Traditional Tales. We had great fun reading lots of different stories and acted out the story of Little Red Riding Hood and rewrote our own version of a traditional tale. 

This Half Term: 

We are continuing our topic on CHOCOLATE. We will carry on reading Charlie and the Chocolate factory by Roald Dahl and we will be doing lots of exciting work based on this story. We will also be looking at Quentin Blake and creating our own sketches.  Our wow ending to the topic will be, creating our own marvellous chocolate bar and writing a recipe for it.

Keep checking out what we have done so far!  

Have a look at our fantastic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory drawings in the style of Quentin Blake.  

We have also been looking at and creating our own pop art based on our chocolate topic. Have a look at our amazing collage creations. 

This week we designed and made our own chocolate bars. Have a look at our super scrumptious creations!
