Year 2: Delaunay class
Sonia Delaunay was a Russian-born French artist, who spent most of her working life in Paris and cofounded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design. She was the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Louvre in 1964.
Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the integration of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing.
In Year 2 children have the opportunity to write in many different formats, have guided reading and phonics lessons daily, visit the school library to get a book to take home as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving.
Reading books and reading diaries go home every afternoon and are brought to school every morning. We encourage the children to read every night, and write in their reading diary each time they do so.
PE will take place on Thursdays. Children need a plain white t-shirt and blue jogging bottoms or shorts to change into, as well as suitable footwear.
Homework is given out once a week on a Friday and will be due in the following Friday. If children are finding it difficult, discuss this with the teacher.
Year 2 will perform an assembly about the things they have been learning on the 22nd April 2016. Parents are welcome to attend these.
