Autumn term 2018


The children have found out about Diwali this week. They made Diva lamps from clay and decorated them.

Tree Ceremony

Today Class 2 hung their leaves on the tree in Tim's Garden and made our Short Woody promises.

The children have been using mirrors to look at themselves. What can you see? What do you notice about your face and features? They have used their ideas to complete a self-portrait using different materials and techniques.

This is what the children observed.
