Gray Class – Year 2
Bruce Gray was an American artist and sculpture. He often used metal and wood to create sculptures, some that had moving parts. Gray’s work has been displayed at many art galleries and museums and can be spotted in the backgrounds of popular films and television shows such as Friends.
Ms Den Bak chose Bruce Gray as her class artist because she especially likes his painted wall sculptures and hanging kinetic art. She enjoys his use of different colours and patterns cut into pieces and layered on top of each other. She thinks that it will be a good resource for children to learn about various elements of art and use their skills to create abstract pieces of art.
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
