Abstract Art

We looked at the artist Beatriz Milhazes and her abstract art using colour and shapes. We worked with our friends to create our own abstract art using circles.

Star of the Week! 29/09/2023

We have been learning about Autumn in class so when we visited the forest this afternoon, we looked for signs of the changing seasons. We listened to a lovely story called 'Leaf Man' by Lois Ehlert then went off to find leaves that we could use to make our own leaf figures. We couldn't leave the forest without having a little bit of time to play.


We were super scientists this week.
We have been finding out about our senses. The children used their sense of taste to decide if the drink was sweet, salty, sour, bitter or bland and if they liked it. Not many children liked the sour drink!

In PE, after a good warm-up, we worked with the children in Mrs Cradock's class to practise balancing on different body parts, linking this work to our science topic 'Our Bodies'.

In maths we have been ordering numbers to 10 and finding the number name. We have also been looking at the number 5 and finding all the ways to make 5.


In Art we have looked at self portraits by the famous artists Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh. We then looked closely at our faces in the mirror and sketched a first draft of our own self portrait.
