The children of Skylarks have got off to a superb start to the academic year. They show great team spirit and are keen learners.
We have already been incredibly busy learning about various topics. In Geography, we spent time learning about the physical and human features of our local area before building up to writing a letter recommending a specific local area for people to move to.
In Art we learnt about famous artists such as Francis Bacon and Henri Matisse. Skylarks children created their own pieces in response to the work of these two artists. They learnt how to tear, overlap and make use of different materials to create brilliant collages. We then had fun creating an autumn curtain. The children went on an autumn walk in search of different coloured and shaped leaves to inspire them with creating their own. As you can see, they really got in to this and created some beautiful leaves. This also happened to be on our ‘Hello Yellow’ day where we wore something yellow to raise awareness of Mental Health.
