The Rainbow Fish – A colourful start to the New Year

Our first week back in 2019 has been a very creative one. We have a beautiful bright classroom as all our little art prodigies commence creating their version of “The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister. Wait a few secs for slide show to appear!

October 2018

It’s hard to believe that we are in our second month of the new school year and Halloween is just around the corner.

This month we have been learning a lot about Autumn. We got a big fright one day when we found ‘Witchy Woo’ hiding in some leaves on our nature table. She is a friendly witch mostly, but she can get up to a few tricks now and again!

Witchy Woo made a cosy bed for herself on our nature table!

We have been concentrating on ‘printing’ during art time which is one of our favourite subjects. We used our fingerprints to create some fantastic autumn trees. We also experimented with pattern when completing our sponge-prints. You can see some of our art work below!
