Art - Colour Mixing
This term in Art, we have been exploring colour and what happens when we mix colours! We have refreshed our knowledge of primary and secondary colours and made our own colour wheels. We also made colour charts to show what happened when we added black and white tints to colours.
This term in music, Year 2 have been learning about rhythm and dot notation. We practised copying rhythms on un-tuned instruments (including our hands) and composed our own rhythms to share with a friend. Then we learnt the value of different symbols to help us remember our rhythms: crotchet, quaver, minim, semibreve and very importantly, the crotchet rest. We learnt that dot notation represents the length of the sound or rest. We enjoyed counting in our heads as we followed the symbols!
During our wonderful COOL time we have the opportunity to continue the learning that we have been doing throughout the week and enjoy practising / showing the different characteristics of effective learning. We have really enjoyed exploring all of the amazing resources that we have available to support the development of our social and communication skills, such as board games, marble runs, wooden blocks, train sets and Lego etc. We have particularly enjoyed our role play areas within our classrooms this term!
