Using our senses!

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had great fun exploring our sense of sight. We have learnt about primary colours and how to mix them to make secondary colours. The children enjoyed using their sense of touch by finger printing to help mix and paint mini-beast pictures and then embellish them with pens.


We have continued to explore our sense of sight by looking at our artist of the moment, Giuseppe Arcimboldo who used fruit, vegetables and flowers to help create his artwork. The children loved using images of fruit and vegetables to create their own artwork.

In English, we have learnt about ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and retold the story in pictures, oral retells and writing. This week, we are going to continue our learning about poetry and write our own poems about what we like to eat.

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our maths workshop and class visit, we hope you found it enjoyable. We know the children loved sharing their learning with you. We look forward to sharing more of our learning with you in the future.
