Arts Week in Y2

Lesson: Art and design

Class: Y2 Year: 2022 - 2023

Inspired by the picture book the SEA OF DREAMS by Dennis Nolan Year 2 have produced some amazing artwork this week.  They used mixed media to create an under water scene using paints, pastels and collage materials.  The children explored colour mixing to create their own colours to use in a colour field painting inspired by the artist Mark Rothko. 

In music they composed and performed their own pieces of music using 1 and 2 syllable words from the book. 

Begum taught the children a dance inspired by the pictures from the story and in drama they acted out scenes from the story. 

In english the children created expanded noun phrases to decribe what they could see and wrote their own poems.  It have been a wonderful week and the children have enjoyed expressing themselves through the arts!
