Reception News – Spring 2 – Week 1

Reception News WB 20.2.23

This week we learned about the role of an artist before exploring the works of Vincent Van Gogh. We then used our skills to begin the first stages of our version of ‘The Starry Night’. We began with a dark blue paint wash for the background before adding chalk and paint to represent the clouds, stars and the moon. Next week we will develop our work further as we add more detail to complete our pictures. We continued to explore the works of Van Gogh through the week as we all joined in with a colouring of ‘The Starry Night’ during a mindfulness session, we also worked collaboratively in our colour teams to create a large scale model of ‘The Starry Night’ using a variety of junk resources.

Year 1 News – Spring 1 – Week 5

This week was Children’s Mental Health week, so our PSHCE topic linked to this. The theme for this year is ‘Let’s Connect’ and the children watched a short video to explore this. They then shared with each other different ways they connect with people all day, every day! Each child completed a puzzle piece and we then put them together as a class to show how we connect as group.
