Some of our art work will be in the style of Jackson Pollock.
Who is that man making a mess on the floor? Why that’s Jackson Pollock and he is a really cool artist!
Pollock is a famous American artist who invented a new way of painting called Action painting.
He dripped paint onto a large canvas on the floor. It was called Action painting because Pollock would move very quickly across the painting, dribbling the paint in long, wobbly lines. Sometimes he threw the paint onto the canvas and some of his paintings still have footprints on them where he stepped in the paint.

Y2's visit to Conisbrough Castle.
We had our first workshop - "Stories from the Keep!"
Life at Conisbrough Castle.
We had a guided tour and found out about what life was like living in a castle and how it was built
We investigated the rooms and smells of the old castle. It was very exciting and we found out lots of interesting facts about life in a medieval castle.
Y2 Medieval Dressing up Day!
We all had great fun. We had an archery contest and a sword fighting competition.

What a fantastic time we had at Cliffe House
Have a look at some of the things we got up to!
Y2 were so excited to have the newly born chicks visit us in the classroom. Mrs Bonner, with her Y5 class, have been finding out about how chicks hatch and their life cycle. They had 12 eggs in an incubator of which 9 hatched and are surviving well and thriving.
Year 5 said we could choose a name for one of the chicks. We all shared our ideas and then voted for the name we liked the best. The winning one was....'Roxy'!
View photos from the Key Stage 1 Nativity. It was fabulous!
We loved learning the songs and retelling the Christmas Story.
Today we acted out the story of the miracle of the Loaves and Fishes. It was great fun and very meaningful.
On Tuesday March 14th Y2 - as part of their instruction writing - the children made banana muffins. They had great fun and really enjoyed baking and of course eating the muffins!
