Nursery class were very fortunate today to receive a visit from the author and illustrator Ellie Sandall. She introduced and read her story "Balancing Bertie" to us.
Nursery were introduced to all of author Ellie Sandall's stuffed dogs today.
We learnt all their names and about how they inspired her to write her book 'Balancing Bertie'.
We then played a game - how many dogs can you balance? 15 was the most!
Author and illustrator Ellie Sandall lead a drawing workshop in Nursery class today. Children were given an outline of a dog to colour in and decorated before we created a 'balancing' Bertie collage on the floor. Look how many dogs he can balance on his nose!
Check out our new-look "Wildlife Area" and "Mud Kitchen"!
We can't wait to see what fun can be had...
Nursery class have spent the first few weeks of term helping to create a group masterpiece!
The first group used lots of different colours to paint the background and explore colour-mixing whilst the second group had some fun 'splatting' their paint on top!
Well done Nursery - it looks amazing!
Almost finished.... just need to peel off the tape! :)
