Year 2 Spring 2021

Year 2 took part in an art inspired writing week for the last week of half term. We looked at a range of painting styles, artists and also writing genres.

The children had a daily painting or sculpture to share their thoughts and opinions about and decide if they enjoyed that piece of work or did not like it.

Each day the children focused on a certain artist including Henri Rousseau, Banksy, Picasso and Norfolk painter, Kieron Williamson.

The children were given an art task to recreate their own work based on the days’ focus artist. They created self-portraits, abstract faces in the style of Picasso and also landscape designs.

From these pieces of artwork, they wrote instructions, gave opinions for a balanced argument and also wrote about their favourite location in Norfolk.

Each day the children plotted the famous artwork on the time line in chronological order.
