Year 1 had a lovely morning at Low Barns Nature Reserve. The children enjoyed walking around the reserve looking out for wildlife and signs of seasonal change. They loved our pond dipping and minibeast hunt activities. We found lots of amazing things including a newt, a toad, a great diving beetle and some sticklebacks.
In Year 1 we have started to investigate seasonal change. We are so excited to see the leaves falling from the trees. The children in Year 1 have been painting some autumn leaves to display in the classroom. We really enjoy all the orange and red colours.
Inspired by the works of Beatriz Milhazes, the children in Year 1 have been creating their own abstract compositions. The children experimented with two methods to create their artwork; with some children layering circle pieces of tissue paper and some children drawing and colouring their own circle shapes. What fantastic artist we have in Year 1!
