This week, we will be welcoming the children back and making sure everyone settles back into school life. We have maths, reading and writing activities planned as well as PSHE sessions and PE on Friday. As a year group, we are also going to start on our whole-school art project which is based on the artist Frank Bowling, and so we would like the children to find and bring something made of paper for example a ticket, favourite sweet wrapper, copy of a photograph, piece of wrapping paper, joke from a cracker etc. and a small 3-d object such as a bottle top, a small plastic animal, favourite pasta shape etc. Ideally these ‘found objects’ will have some personal meaning to them, but should not be precious as they will become part of the art work and will not be able to be returned. We can't wait to see you all again!
