Our recent topic in early Years has been “Pirates”. We have been reading stories and singing pirate songs. These children have been making treasure maps and treasure chests.
During the last week of half term our focus was ‘Look After Yourself’. Each class had a trip on the Life Education Bus and we did lots of activities throughout the week to support our PSE curriculum. One of our favourite activities is where we all painted a picture of ourselves and looked in a mirror to see what colour our eyes and hair is. We tried hard to paint our body parts in the correct place and discussed the fact our arms do not come out of our head! We have had great fun this week. We looked at how we are all different, things we are good at and what makes us special.
The children in Nursery and Reception have looked at the painting ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh. We have mixed our own shades of blue using white to make it lighter. We used wave and swirl movements to make our paintings.
We have also used ‘Colour Magic’ on the computer to create our own Van Gogh pictures
