End of Term 

Hasn’t this half of the term gone fast, we’ve been making making making. In Nursery we have been bringing our books to life, making planets, stars, snails e.t.c it has been so much fun. In reception a highlight was creating a large scale wall piece using autumn leaves and spray bottles to mix colours. Finally in Picasso Club we at last finished our rainforest scene fully equipped with moving animals. We’re now focusing on producing artwork around the theme of ‘feelings’ for an art competition called Young Art which is open to all children in Charles Dickens, in years reception and above. The deadline in the 26th January, all rules and details on the website: https://www.young-art.org.uk


Sutton Hoo helmets with Yrs 3&4
