Welcome to Year Two at Mill Park Heights Primary School.
The students have moved into Performing Arts for this term after a fantastic Term 1 in Visual Arts. They are now playing a variety of percussion instruments focusing on beat and rhythm as well as symbols representing sounds. They will also create and perform a ‘Soundscape’ as a whole class, and in small groups, (telling a story through music/sound).
We are looking forward to finishing the decorations on our Carnevale masks and wearing them in the big school Parade in Term 2.

Our Artistic year has started wonderfully with all year 2 classes doing Visual Arts this term. The students started by discovering magic when they learnt blending techniques using different pastel colours to create new colours. They were certainly very excited about their discoveries. They are now using their drawing and painting skills to contribute to ‘Our Year 2 Portrait Poster’ featuring all the students in their grade. We are also looking forward to our hand-printing unit and then creating our Carnevale masks to wear in the big school Parade in Term 2.
