Year 2 - Musée du Louvre
This year, Year 2 are named after the Musee Du Louvre. The Musee Du Louvre is the world's largest art museum, located in Paris near the River Seine.
Perhaps most famously, it is home to the Mona Lisa, which Year 2 have learnt all about. They explored the idea of a portrait and were intrigued at the concept of their eyes following you around and tried it out themselves by creating their own modern versions of the Mona Lisa, complete with her face and eyes.
IPC and STEM
This half term, the Circus is coming to Year 2 because our exciting new topic is "the Circus is coming to Town!"
Our entry point to this topic will be a circus skills workshop where we will learn different skills needed to be in the circus.
We will also be learning how to debate, as we tackle the subject of animals in the circus and learning about some of the countries the animals may be from.
We will be having a DT day, where we will be having a go at designing and making our own circus tents. To accompany this, we will be designing our own ideal circuses, making tickets, designing posters using multimedia, designing clown make up during art and constructing maps.
IPC Entry Point
For our entry point, we travelled by bus to St Michael's School to be taught by a REAL clown! His name was Arthur and he taught us how to perform lots of circus tricks including juggling, flower stick tricks, spinning plates and diablo tricks. As a class, we found the juggling really hard but we were all super stars at using the flower sticks!
