Here are some photographs of the wonderful memories that we have brought back from the residential trip.  Many thanks to all of our staff for giving up their time to make the trip happen.

We are on our third day of our residential trip and we are having so much fun trying new things and enjoying different activities!

We are going to be tired – but very happy- on our return!

Reception- Forest School Fungi!

Friday, October 12th, 2018

This week in Forest School the Reception children found some fungi that had grown since our last visit! The children were excited to think fairies and imps may have been using the fungi to sit on! We learnt that while some fungi is okay to eat- like the mushrooms we buy at the supermarket, other fungi can make our tummies very sore. We reminded ourselves of our Forest School rule- ‘no picking, no licking!’

 

During the afternoon we had a go at drawing the fungi we had seen using charcoal and chalk. We created some very good pictures!

Also at Forest School this week we painted, played in the mud kitchen, hunted for anacondas and explored a new part of the river! Such fun!

Our very own Wild Things!

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

As part as our art topic ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, we have studied many aspects of Maurice Sendak’s artwork and¬†learned new skills by looking closely at every detail of his illustrations.

We have even been able to draw and paint our very own Wild Things, using pencil, fine liner, different brushes and watercolours. The photos below were taken as we were creating the shades we needed by mixing colours.

There are some incredible artists among us!
