Reminders

PE this term is Tuesday & Thursday. For this term PE kit includes navy tracksuits, white PE t-shirt with logo, shorts, trainers and white socks.

Forest School  is also Tuesday  for all children this term. The children need to be dressed in PE tracksuits, with warm underlayers (not white PE t-shirts). Outer layers should be waterproof and warm. Please ensure all clothing is labelled. Wellington boots and waterproofs can remain in school. On very wet days you will recieve notification to send in a change of clothes in a named bag.   

This term we will be using the philosophical question, 

‘ How can we connect to our world through Art?’

to explore how nature and Art inspires us and connects us to our world.  We will use the story LEAF by Sandra Dieckmann, a beautifully illustrated story about a lost Polar Bear and the compassion of others to help him. The illustrations in this book will inspire our artwork, the children will learn to draw in different media, paying close attention to the detail in natural objects such as leaves and flowers. They will learn to use  a straight stitch to create a sewn leaf collage. We will look at the patterns and texture of leaf and make clay impressions. In Forest School and Science this term the children will look at leaves and learn to identify some of the deciduous tress in our nature area.
