Summer Term fun

Octopus ArtOctopus Art



We had lots of helpers during Arts Week, thank you to everyone that helped us. Mrs Littlewood and Mrs Free came into school and worked with every class on a different type of art. Each piece has been put together to make a huge whole school art piece, which you can see in our school hall. Year two's job was to create an octopus for the display. We had so much fun making it!

This is when Year 2 went to York Art Gallery. We had lots of fun! For most of the day the sun was shining. We spent the morning at Rainbows Ceramic Café, where we decorated individual tiles (see below). In this picture we are walking through the Museum Gardens on our way to the Art Gallery where we enjoyed our packed lunches on the grass.

These are our tiles before they went in the kiln. They are much

brighter now they have been fired. You can see the finished pieces

in our classroom and in the school hall.

This is what our tiles looked like after they were collected from Rainbows. We think you will agree that they look so colourful and make a fantastic display!



This is one of the rooms that we explored during our visit to York Art Gallery. Lots of us said that we would really love to visit it again to see more of the artwork.
