Learning about our bodies.

In Reception our Science work has been based around the human body. The children have been learning the different parts of the body and then have explored the different senses of sight, hearing, taste, and smell.

The children created a great life size person to label.

Here are the children exploring the different senses.

Fun at Nursery

The children have been busy learning through the topic and theme of Marvellous Me.

The children have painted self portraits and talked about who is in their family. They have drawn pictures of their family.

The children have also started to learn to count to 5 using the theme of Seasons. The children have used hand prints to create different trees.

Stone Age Art

This week we went to the forest to explore how Cave paintings were created. We made our own paint brushes with sticks, feathers, moss and leaves. We also made different coloured paints from nature: charcoal, chalk, crushed leaves and mud. We used modern methods to recreate; Cueva de las Manos – The Cave of Hands (Argentina) . It is fascinating to think about how long ago some of these images were created and consider what they tell us about the Stone Age times.
