Our Starry Night

 

We were each given a section of Vincent Van Gogh's 'The Starry Night'

to create on canvas using oil pastels. As part of our exhibition we put them

altogether to make a work of art.

Beast Pottery!

We have been inspired by our trip to Tonbridge School's Old Big School Gallery and their 'Beast' Exhibition.

Year 2 were lucky enough to spend an afternoon with Mrs O'Dwyer, a potter and artist, to make some animal pots. They thought carefully about the animal's features and the textures of the animal.

Home Learning

MyMaths

 

Every Wednesday new tasks will be assigned to your child on the MyMaths website.

 

They have one week to complete these tasks before new ones will be allocated.

 

They only take around 10-15 minutes each and will really support the learning your child does at school.
