Today for our art lesson we used the book Let’s Paint as our art provocation. We read the story as a group and then the children had the opportunity to paint as their heart desires. The book was a reminder that there is no mistakes in painting!

…Whether you drip, dot, daub or carefully dab – there is a marvellous, messy world of art waiting to be explored. From exquisitely detailed paintings to crazy kaleidoscopes of colour, art is as essential as the air we breath and much more fun…¬†


Today for mindfulness the children were drawing in their new mindful drawing books.


Both classes began preparation for their assemblies. 3IB’s buddy assembly will be on Friday Week 7 and 3JM’s buddy assembly will be on Friday Week 8. We will be working together over the term to share our learning in preparation.

Have a lovely night with your families.
