Dough Disco!

Dough Disco!

We had a fantastic day during dough disco! Not only did we create instructions and made our very own play dough, we then got to use it throughout the day.

Every hour we joined the key stage one classes in the playground and when the music played, we danced with our play dough. We had a great time and the dance routine helped us exercise our hands and fingers. It also helped our         hand-eye coordination and our fine and gross motor dexterity, but most of all, we had lots of fun together!

 

Rainbow Week

Rainbow Week

Dolphin’s had a fantastic week at school during rainbow week. We celebrated being different and we were lucky enough to take part in exciting and educational activities and we had lots of fun! Here are some of the things we got up to..

We coloured in templates of people and used our favourite colours to design our own clothes. This was a true representation of ourselves and how we are all different from one another.

 

We also had a very special visitor who brought her guide dog and told us all about how important guide dogs are as they help people who are blind. In class we then took it in turns to use a blind fold, so we could see how it feels to not be able to see anything. We then had to help and guide each other around the classroom, just like guide dogs do.

What a great first day back we have had!

Today Snow Leopard, Dolphin and Panda class started learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy- he creates all of his art using resources from nature.

We looked at some of his work, analysed it and then went outside to create our own. This is what we did:

Andy Goldsworthy

As part of our art work this half term, we are looking at different artists and working in their style. Today was the turn of Andy Goldsworthy. We found out that:

-He was born in England but now lives in Scotland.

-Studied fine art.

-Likes to use natural materials to create sculptures.

-Likes to work outside and takes photographs of his work.

We used a selection of natural materials to create small scale sculptures inside, or went foraging for materials outside and used them to create  large scale pieces. We enjoyed talking about our works  of art, and thought carefully about the materials we used and the positioning of each piece.

Look at our finished works of art!
