Fri 7 Jun 2024 | Reception

Article 28 (right to education) Every child has the right to an education.

Article 31 (leisure, play and culture) Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.

The children in Reception Class have been joined by artist Elizabeth Kane to become ‘Emerald Explorers’. For the next few weeks the children will be exploring the green spaces all around them and take artistic inspirations form what they discover. This week we found out about the different kinds of leaves that we found in our garden and forest areas. The children noticed beautiful things about the leaves as they looked closely including colour, shade pattern and texture.

On return to class Elizabeth helped us to find ways to create our own artwork using watercolour pencils in response to the leaves we found.
