Welcome back to you all. We hope you all had a lovely half term and we have loved hearing what you have all been up to in the holidays.

We have had a busy first week back and we have started by looking at a new artist, Gustav Klimt. He uses lots of patterns and different marks to create his pictures. We have been exploring  by making different marks in paint, pen and crayon. In class we have looked at the colours he liked using and spoke about what our favourite colours were. We also learnt that he likes painting portraits and landscapes and have recreated some of these ourselves in class. We made the most of the sunshine on Tuesday by doing this outside on a huge piece of paper, so that we can eventually create our own ‘Tree of Life’ for a display in the classroom.

We also welcomed Amanda into Maple class this week. Amanda is now the Level 3 in class on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Jude will continue to be the Level 3 in class on a Monday and Tuesday.

Have a lovely weekend!!

Jemma, Amanda, Jude, Karen, Carly, Olivia and Abbie xx
