We are artists

In art we have been learning about the artist Henri Matisse and the artwork he created. Henri Matisse painted pictures and created abstract art. Here are some examples of his work.

We had a try at creating a superhero in the style of Henri Matisse. This was before our learning. On Wednesday we will learning to cut shapes of different sizes. We will then apply these skills to creating another superhero next week.

It’s good to read!

The children have been using many different skills to help them read. They have been using Fred talk, looking for special friends in words and splitting longer words to make them easier to read. Remember to read at home at home as often as possible and record it in your diaries. 

There are words everywhere so why not practise your reading everywhere you go!
