Learning represented through Imaginative Artwork

Today, different classes worked together to think about how they can represent the concept of LEARNING through Art. The children were not allowed to use pencils or pens and had to be collaborative learners bringing together shared ideas to create these stunning creative pieces.

Each group was able to talk through how their creations were linked to learning. We were very impressed with all of the wonderful ideas that were shared.

Mrs Tricket is very excited to put each piece up for display to welcome us back into school in September.

Please take a momen to talk to your child about the ideas behind their pieces, I’m sure they will WOW you as they did us!

Cave Paintings

Year 4 explored the various Stone Age cave paintings that have been discovered around the world. They used the styles of the different caves to create their own versions of the paintings. It was brilliant to see so many children taking risks in their learning by trying out new ideas, reflecting on what worked well and using this to create their final version.

Chicks in EYFS

What a fascinating couple of weeks Reception and Nursery have had seeing 13 chicks hatch and grow…

The children have loved observing the chicks and how they have been changing in appearance and developing new skills such as jumping.  They also had the opportunity to hold a chick and describe how that felt.  Sadly today we had to say good bye to the chicks today.   If you would like to talk more to your child about how they will look when they are fully grown please look up the breed Cream Legbar Chicken.
