Finding out about fire engines!

We have been looking at information texts and finding out about fire engines so we were very excited yesterday when Firefighter Ian came to visit us. He answered our questions and told us lots of interesting facts about fire-engines which we will be able to use in our writing today.

Outdoor Learning Day!

We had great fun spending time in the tent on our Outdoor Learning day; Mrs Anderson taught us some songs and we listened to stories. We drew some maps of the outside area and we enjoyed hot chocolate and a biscuit around the camp fire.

We used Kandinsky's painting of Concentric Circles to inspire us. We mixed paints using the primary colours and were so careful painting our circles. We also made patterns with tissue circles.
