Being artists with nature inspired by James Brunt

We went out with boxes to collect the autumn leaves and some sticks. Once we had collected enough we worked together in two teams to lay the leaves and sticks out to be artists and make a picture! What do you think of our art work?

Busy Few Weeks

What a busy few weeks we have had . Whilst making new friends we have also been learning all the new routines of school and exploring the school and playgrounds. We have been learning in the outdoor and indoor areas(even in torrential rain!). This week we started learning some Spanish and we were lucky to have a visit from some of our Spanish speaking families. It was such a lovely day full of learning new words and a variety of activities. Hopefully , the children all came home with some new Spanish words to teach all the family. 

Stay and Play

What a lovely few days. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children during stay and play sessions. They have all enjoyed a variety of activities both inside and outside. It was great to watch them all meeting new friends and learning together. We even learnt where everything goes in the classroom and helped one another to tidy up. What a fantastic start to the year!
