Year 2

 

Welcome to Year 2 !!

 

Our topic this half term is


The Carnival of The Animals.


 In class we have listened to The Carnival of the Animals 
 (Le carnaval des animaux)


by a French composer called Camille Saint-Saëns.

We have learned about his  works and were inspired by the orchestra and explored making sounds in music. We talked about how the music describes
animal features.
This week we have learned about animals found in the African Savanna and the Australian outback; looking at the life cycles of the lion and kangaroo.

Curriculum

In art we looked at a selection of books by Eric Carle and how he illustrated some of the animals in his books. We then chose an animal from the African Savanna to collage.

Then we created some Aboriginal Artwork of our own.
