For our Art days in Summer 1, Year 2 were focussing on the skills for drawing and painting. They started by creating repeating patterns using a range of 'junk modelling' items and paint. After this, they used crayons and different objects to create rubbings on their page, this showed a range of textures that can be found using household objects! They then used a range of pencils to create a 3D drawing of pieces of ribbon in their sketchbooks. They also used different coloured oil pastels to represent particular planets within our solar system!

To go alongside our Science topic of ways to stay healthy, in DT we have been looking at exciting ways to ensure we have lots of fruit in our diets!

We have explored a variety of fruit and developed our cutting skills to chop up different fruit: nectarines, mandarines, apples, pears and kiwis. After this the children tasted the different fruits, they particularly enjoyed the kiwis and pears!

The children then made their own fruit flavoured jelly - they shared out the jobs and worked as a team to ensure equal amounts of jelly mixture were in their containers ready to set!

On Friday, we tasted and evaluated the jelly - most were successfully set! We then used our cutting skills again with different fruit: bananas, plums and oranges. We then tasted these fruits with different melted chocolate and evaluated what worked best together and what we could try next time!
