An Udderly Amoozing Topic!

Friday, September 20th, 2019

Here in Starfish we are so excited about our new art topic!

After doing some interesting research on Steven Brown’s work, we have now started to get our hands and brushes dirty as we are experimenting with colours,  techniques and brush control.

We are looking forward to becoming amoozing artists!


Colour Mixing with Hermit Crabs!

Friday, September 20th, 2019

The Hermit Crabs’ new topic ‘Udderly Amoozing!’ is well under way.  This week, the children have been taught some basic acrylic skills and have been experimenting with acrylic paints.  They have also been taught some basic brush control skills and have completed a series of painting exercises.  On Wednesday, the children were re-introduced to the ‘colour wheel’ and spent time applying their knowledge of colour mixing to make secondary and tertiary colours.  The children are very much looking forward to applying their colour mixing and brush control skills when they paint their first picture in the style of Steven Brown next week.

SEALS have fun with counting and forming numbers...

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

We have made the most of our wonderful KS1 outdoor space recently; painting water numbers with correct formation all over the fences and creating colourful chalk number-lines, collected natural materials from the garden and practised really careful counting. We have also really enjoyed investigating though lots of fun activities what a number looks and actually feels like and had fun playing games where our friends had to spot the missing numbers in a sequence. What a super start to becoming Number experts!
