Our Learning Journey
Come and see all the fantastic things we have been learning....
Kandinsky Flowers… our abstract artwork where we explored colour mixing.
We have a new unit in our classroom that was kindly donated to us. We have used it to house all our loose parts that we use to construct things. The children have been taking good care to keep it tidy and their small world play has become a lot more purposeful.

In Reception we have learnt about the Hindu festival Diwali this week. We found out that light is a very important part of this festival and made our own Diva lamps, sparkly firework pictures and fireworks using construction. We also talked about 2D shapes and enjoyed very careful water colour painting to make our Rangoli patterns. There were some beautiful Diwali cards made for each other too. It was great to learn a Bhangra dance... the children always wow us with their dance moves!
Sometimes we write and mark make actually on our writing table! The outcomes are gorgeous!
Our Star of the Week this week is Lily! Congratulations! (13/11/20)
Movie night! The children had a great time watching despicable me 2 in their onesies.
Spooky fun! The children looked amazing today, thank you so much for all your efforts! In the morning they loved our little disco... Mrs Orridge and I learnt some new spooky moves! Then after lunch we took part in the pumpkin trail, with lots of Halloween themed activities in between. (Sorry the spider pictures weren’t dry enough to take home).
🌟Well done to Eloise, our Star of the Week! (23/10/20)🌟
