'Poles Apart' Knowledge organiser Autumn 2

Year 2 have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy's artwork. They looked at some of his sculptures made out of natural materials and were inspired to create their own pieces of art.

Coral Class have been deciding who deserves to go in the golden book for showing the British and school value of respect. We talked about the British value of democracy and then held our own democratic, secret vote to choose. Zach R and Ivy were voted into the golden book for exemplifying this value.

Year 2 have been looking at the work of different sculptors. They looked at a range of work by Richard Sweeney who made sculptures out of paper. This was used as inspiration to make their own paper sculptures.

Coral Class have had an exciting day at Forest School. We have been investigating trees. We identified trees by looking at their leaves and also found some of their seeds. We were amazed by the variety of bark; we found different colours and textures. We learned how to tell how old a tree is by counting its rings and also tried to measure some of the trees in arm spans and hand spans. Finally, we went on a bug hunt and discovered that bugs are very well camouflaged to prevent predators finding and eating them. What a fabulous day!

Coral Class have been learning about coral reefs. They have found out what coral is (it is actually an animal even though it looks like a rock!) and have learned some of the creatures that live in this habitat. They then made dioramas to depict a coral reef.
