Our busy Nursery bees

Our Nursery children have been looking at bees this week.  We have made some hand print painted bees and sung some bee songs.  We looked at the busy work bees do making honey. And we finished off the week by looking at the school bee hive and having a honey sandwich picnic!

Greek Myths and Icarus artwork

This term Years 3 and 4 have been reading stories from ‘The Greek Myths’ during their English lessons.

During their art lessons we have created collage art work based on the story of Icarus – the boy who flew too close to the sun. All pictures had to include a sun, the sea and Icarus. All the artwork can be seen on display outside the Year 3 classroom. See more Year 3 and Year 4 work here.

Leaf creatures

It’s starting to look very autumnal in our gardens and Years 1 and 2 have been busy making some very creative pictures from the colourful leaves that they have found.

Take a look at some of their seasonal creatures!
