Please find below a photograph learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been doing. We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and that they give you the chance to talk to your child about their learning and share in their experiences at school.
We had a fantastic time during Forest School. We loved learning in our wonderful outdoor space and exploring our woodland walk.
In art we have been drawing self portraits. We started by looking at some famous paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and explored how colours can match different moods and emotions. We created our backgrounds by mixing primary colours and exploring ways to make different shades. We used a range of sponges and brushes to get different effects for our background. We then drew our portraits and used mirrors and guidelines to help put our eyes, ears, nose and mouth in the right places. As we were painting our features we selected the correct sized brushes to help us paint in the lines and add detail. We enjoyed looking at each others finished self portraits. We hope you enjoy seeing them too.
