Year 1 and 2 Work
As part of Year 1's Harvest celebrations, the children have created beautiful paintings of apple trees:
Year 1 has also learnt a poem about apples. Watch a video of the children reciting their harvest poem:
On their recent trip to Wakefield Place, Year 2 were introduced to the work of Andrew Goldsworthy, an artist who creates ephemeral art pieces (art that doesn’t last for long).
Back at school, Year 2 came up with their own ideas and created their own ephemeral art in the playground, using natural materials such as petals and twigs.

Roman Chariot Design Work:
The children in Year 2 have been learning about the Romans during their cross-curricular lessons, combining history, art and design. They started by researching Roman chariots before designing their own chariots. Their next task was to investigate ways to make their chariots stand up. The project resulted in some very original designs. View examples of their work below.
A Year 2 has shared his findings from his research into Roman chariots:
The Romans raced with chariots to entertain people.
Chariots were pulled by two or four horses.
People who drive chariots are called charioteers.
It was dangerous to drive a chariot because they could fall out of the back.
The chariots went very fast.
The chariots were very heavy.
They were made of metal.
If a chariot ran over you it would squash you.
The patterns on the chariots were quite scary. Some of them had a horrible monster on the front to frighten the other charioteers.
