In the Sunshine room we read the story The Rainbow Fish.
In art we made the Rainbow Fish by printing the scales of the fish using celery dipped in paint.
In the Sunshine room this week we have been doing Halloween art.
We used our fingerprints to make the outline of bats.
We used our hands to print spiders on paper plates and then threaded twine around to make spider webs.
We used toilet rolls cut up and dipped in paint to print more spiders.
In the Sunshine room we looked at autumn colours and made some autumn trees. We made the leaves using three different methods.
First we used dish brushes dipped in paint.
Next we used our own fingerprints.
Last of all we tore up yellow, red, orange and brown paper and glued them onto the trees.
In the Sunshine room we made autumn collages from the beautiful autumn leaves and twigs we collected in the park.
