Today the children enjoyed experiencing Process Art whilst listening to classical music! With Process Art, the children are not taught how to do art, but to discover it for themselves. Its about freedom, not rules. Its about how the art is being created than what the finished product is going to look like. Process art is all about how you feel as you experiment with the materials. The children agreed it made them feel pretty good!
In Nurture every small activity is used as a learning opportunity. Here the children are working in pairs to plant pansies in tin cans. However to achieve success in the task I asked them to: share the steps equally between them, to be courteous, to use encouraging words with each other, to work with each other in a respectful and considerate manner and to amiable! It was tricky at times, but with support all the children managed to achieve it! Well done Nurture!
You have worked so hard and achieved so much! We are all very proud of you!
This week we went to the allotment and pulled up some of our spring onions that have been growing over the winter months. We were delighted to find they were really healthy and ready to eat. After lots of discussion, we agreed on using them to make Welsh Rarebit (cheese and onion on toast). It was absolutely delicious and tasted so much better because we had made it with our own homegrown, freshly picked spring onions!
We were lucky enough to entertain our visiting community police officers for lunch week. We chatted to them about their jobs and their daily routines and also how they help us to keep safe in many different ways. Thank you for your visit PC’s, we hope you come again soon!
Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
