Children and staff enjoyed the first signs of spring appearing in our garden this week. The appearance of daffodils lifts our hearts and reminds us spring (and the rain) is on its way.
The garden team positioned easels, tables and a range of images and mark making tools next to the newly emerged daffodils. Children were then encouraged to observe the flowers closely, talk about them and were introduced to the watercolours and palettes. Children explored colour, texture and created a range of shades. Many children returned and sustained their learning over the week. The results were beautiful and unique: our artists were so proud of their artwork as well.
Children also enjoyed listening to the Easter Story and recreating The Last Supper with bread they baked and cranberry juice. Some children were able to retell different parts of the story and many were able to talk about their own families celebrations and beliefs.
Enjoy your Easter break friends of Rachel Keeling.
