Junk modelling robots!

This week as part of our ‘Art Attack’ topic, the children explored the work of differently abled artists and they had a go at trying to paint blindfolded or with using the paintbrushes in their mouths! This helped the children to understand and appreciate how those artists have persevered and been resilient in overcoming challenges​ to make their artwork. 

We have also been busy creating collages and concentric circles, after learning about Matisse and Kandinsky. In maths this week, we have been exploring 3D shape and the children then created their own junk modelling robots!

In talk for writing, we have been learning about one of the children’s favourite stories… The Three Little Pigs! They have produced some really amazing writing- take a look!

At Thistle Hill, our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
