3L – We made a Clay Tile of a Victorian House

Finally, we added the detail of the brickwork and the roof tiles. We used clay tiles to create the different textures.

Our tiles are now ready to be fired in a kiln.

6L Art – Dare you stare into the eyes of Medusa?

This term we will create our version of Carravagio’s famous painting of Medusa. Carravagio used studies of his face to create his Medusa and we have been studying our faces in preparation. We discussed the emotions conveyed in the famous art work – sorrow, fear, shock, rage. We then used charcoal and chalk to capture only our eyes when we expressed these emotions. The results speak for themselves and we think we’ve achieved what we set out to do. Next week, we will concentrate on expressing emotion with our mouths.

Our week in Nursery

This week we have been busy building relationships with each other and getting to know the daily routines.

Here are some pictures of some of the fun we have had!

We have been reading the book ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?

We have been talking about different colours and sorting them.

Can your child sort things at home? They could help sort the laundry into different colours or sort beads/buttons by colour or shapes.

What colours can you see on your walk to nursery?

Please send any pictures of anything exciting you have been doing at home; we would love to see them! nursery@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk

Culture week in the Nursery

This week we have been learning about the world that we live in. Our focus country was Somalia.

Here are some of the activities the children have enjoyed.

1S Artists

This week we have been using paint to colour mix the right colours to create a picture of our chosen fruit. Can you explain how you used the powder paints for colour mixing?

The children observed closely to draw their shape outline. Then they mixed the colours and used them to add details and colour.

They look beautiful and I can’t wait to display them in the classroom.


This week in the nursery we have been learning about different types of vegetables and discussing the health benefits of eating our greens!
