Year 2: Tagore Class
Abanindranath Tagore was the principal artist and creator of ‘Indian Society of Oriental Art’ and the first major exponent of swadeshi values in Indian art, thereby founding the influential Bengal school of art, which led to the development of modern Indian painting. He was also a noted writer, particularly for children. Popularly known as ‘Aban Thakur’, his books Rajkahini, Budo Angla, Nalak, and Khirer Putul are landmarks in Bengali language children’s literature.
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.
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. Parents are welcome to attend.
Yr2 explored texture in art through looking at, and feeling, leaves from the different plants we have growing at school. They went on to make clay impressions, which created these beautiful tiles full of texture and natural beauty.
