Creativity in Year 2 for One World Week

Last week, children from Reception to Year 6, embraced One World Week in their learning. One World Week offers inspiration to encourage people to take action to build a more inclusive and peaceful world. The children were able to learn about different countries across the world and explore their culture in more detail. 

In Year 2, the children channelled their creativity and explored some new art techniques linked to learning about Kenya. In class, the children learnt all about the Masaai people and their traditions. This inspired the class to make their own Masaai necklaces using repeated patterns and a range of materials for threading.

The children also learnt about the Big 5 animals. To further their learning, the children created their own silhouette sunset images. They did this by mixing paints and creating a gradual background effect to look like a sunset. The children then cut out silhouettes of the animal from black card.

By engaging the children in different art projects, they have been able to apply the knowledge they learnt about Kenya in a creative manner. It has been great to see the children confidently explore different mediums whilst learning about a new culture.
