Tudor house sketching

What budding artists we have this year in Hedgehogs! This afternoon we compared houses of today with houses that existed around the time of the Great Fire of London. The children used pictures of buildings to help them sketch their own pictures. They used a range of sketching pencils and shading techniques.

Little Red Hen

Today we began learning the story 'The Little Red Hen'. The children picked up the actions and the story really quickly and were confident at retelling the story verbally by the end of the lesson. I look forward to reading their written versions later in the week. Here are some photos of them acting out the story. Maybe they can retell you the story at home.

Paper Dolls

Yesterday we read The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb. 
We made our own version of the dolls and gave them names. 
Then we took them outside for an adventure!


Over the last few weeks we have been studying the work of Claude Monet. We have used a variety of mediums to explore his style of work including learning to use oil pastels, chalk and paint. 

We then made a water lily using tissue paper and created a background for them to sit on. Have a look at our finished pieces!
