Anatsui Class – Year 2
El Anatsui (pronounced Ah-nah-ch-wee) is a Ghanaian artist who works mostly in Nigeria and Ghana. He is particularly well-known for his large-scale sculptures made from recycled materials such as bottle tops, metal, fabric and wire.
Mrs Ooi chose Anatsui because of his eye-catching and unique artwork and the important message it coveys about caring for the environment. She thought that the children would enjoy creating their own artwork inspired by Anatsui and that it would help them understand that art and creativity can take many different forms.
Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
In addition they will have to complete a piece of work, one week based on Maths and the following on Reading Comprehension.
In addition children will take home a sheet with “KIRFs” ( Key Instant Recall Facts) every Half Term.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
We have a shared library which has many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly – that includes plimsolls, as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
