In Summer term, Year 2 have an art focus in our enquiry and writing lessons. Our class texts are "Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos" by Monica Brown and "Giraffes Can't Dance" by Giles Andreae.
Throughout the enquiry, children will learn all about the life of Frida Kahlo and discover how she used her art to express herself through self-portraits. They will learn about a range of painting techniques such as printmaking, scratching and splashing and will look how lines and colour can be used to express different feelings and emotions.
In science, children will learn all about plants and animals including humans. They will learn how important it is to keep their bodies healthy by eating a balanced diet, getting plenty of exercise and keeping their bodies nice and clean. When learning about plants, children will investigate what plants need to keep healthy and will learn all about how plants grow from seeds and bulbs.
