We have been learning about the Scottish artist Ritchie Collins as part of our Scottish topic. We have used his drawing of Edinburgh castle as our inspiration to create our own image. We were focusing on colour, texture, line, form, tone and shape. We were also exploring creating a foreground, middle ground and a background.
This week we started our new topic – Under the Sea!
We have loved exploring the new sea creature toys and playing in our own submarine!
We have done lots of art work inspired by under the sea. We have been particularly working on our cutting skills.
P1 began our new ‘Under the Sea’ topic by making some jellyfish! We had to paint our plate, cut out tentacles and a smiley face. We have also enjoyed playing in our new kitchen area and we have made lots of brilliant castles using the bricks!
This week we have been learning to recognise and name the initial letter of our name, practising good handwashing, turn taking, sharing and counting perceived items. We’ve had some new resources delivered which we have loved playing in the boxes.
This week the children made bird feeders and took these out to the school grounds to hang on the trees. We have been looking at our factual book about birds, spotting the different birds in our environment and learning their names.
We made a car wash in the nursery garden and visited the gym hall to practice some of our physical skills.
