Our EYFS children had a busy afternoon! They loved exploring clay, learning how to warm it up to manipulate it more easily, shape it by rolling it in the palm of their hands and pinching and pulling it with their fingers. They’ve created a lovely litter of hoglets!3
Thought I’d try an art teaching one of these! Beautiful finger tip colour mixing gardens created by the year 1 class @leighfield_acad
The palette The Painting
Year 1 had great fun exploring colour and creating their own Monet gardens this afternoon. Mixing primary colours using their finger tips and adding white to create lovely pink and lilac tints too.4
Currently filming the follow on lesson to this one for the @Discoverytrust year 1 children. I had the pleasure of joining in with the children @leighfield_acad last week and they blew me away with their thoughts, feelings, vocabulary and interpretation of the painting!
This is so exciting! As a Rutland school, how could we not learn about this in our classrooms?
BREAKING NEWS! Adding to the recent find of a Roman mosaic, #Rutland’s earth has now revealed a prehistoric ichthyosaur, known now as the Rutland #Seadragon.
At 10 meters long, it’s the largest discovered in the UK and it will be featured on @BBCTwo Digging For Britain TONIGHT!
