Children in reception class have been enjoying their newly designed outdoor area which has been adapted to provide a rich source of learning materials that they can access on a self serve basis to enhance their natural curiosity and motivation.Thus promoting and developing their self esteem, independence, confidence and positive dispositions to learning, skills and team work. The class have been particularly enjoying the big bricks, crates, tyres and dressing up resources.
The Oriental Museum delivered an interactive Chinese New Year workshop to reception class and year 3. The children were told the story of Nian and how he was defeated (a scary monster who attacked villages long ago) and why years are known as animal names by dressing up in character. They finished with a spot of dragon dancing.
Year 1 have been creating some fantastic art work again. The class have been learning about animals found in the polar regions and camouflage. To enhance their creativeness they are individually sketching and painting to create a giant polar landscape complete with animals. The photos are just a snippet of their work, we can’t wait to see the finished design!
