Our learning

Number Day

Art- Landscapes and cityscapes

We have been learning about Claude Monet and his beautiful paintings. We have learnt how to mix the three primary colours to make lots more colours. We then used our fingers to paint our sketches. There were some wonderful creations!

Science - bird box!

Mrs Lowdon made a bird box for our forest school which we have decorated. We cannot wait to see if any birds choose to live in it!

Science - Habitats

We had a forest school session with Mrs Clarke learning all about micro-habitats. We even spotted two newts! Can you see them in our video?
