In art, we have been learning about sculptures. We have looked at Alexander Calder’s stabiles and Antony Gormley’s body sculptures and created our own using paper, wire and tin foil.
Kingfishers Class spent a day at Rosemoor as part of our Wriggle and Crawl topic this term. We learnt about some of the minibeasts that lived in the woodland, then went on a hunt for them, using magnifying jars and insect viewers to help us study them up close. We found centipedes and snails and spiders and beetles, including a beautiful Violet Ground Beetle. Afterwards, we made clay sculptures of a minibeast and made a home for it amongst the trees. We even found time to play games on the lawn after lunch!
Swallows visited Rosemoor to find out more about the plants and animals living in the gardens there. They listened carefully to see how many birds they could hear in the woods and even saw a deer running through the woods. They also enjoyed finding out about where, at Rosemoor, different minibeasts live.
