Art In Action

Squirrel Class have had the chance to explore the paint and mix colours. Now it is time to use those skills to create portraits in the style of Marc Chagall. He is known for not only painting the portrait but also including items in the background that are important to that person. So the children are painting themselves with the most important things to them in their background too. Things like family members, pets, toys, friends, the garden, trampolines, bikes and even cuddly toys.

Our trip to the SS Great Britian

A superb day out at the SS Great Britain on Wednesday.

During the visit we:

Went to the dry dock and under the sea without getting wet.

Visited the museum.

Had a tour of the ship with Eddie our tour guide. What a lot of sights and smells! The first class passengers were very lucky.

Ate our lunch, trying to keep away from those pesky seagulls!

Did a workshop with Natasha about what the children would have done on board ship to keep amused.

We even had time to have final look around before the journey back to school.
