The Foundation Phase Film Club has been a real success so far. The children are enjoying watching films based on different themes. We have discussed how music and colour create atmosphere. The children have enjoyed watching a wide variety of films, including some which made us laugh an awful lot, and some which gave us something to think about. We are looking forward to even more film club fun next Tuesday!

Rainbows and Raindrops!

Today the children have been learning about rainbows. The children learned all about the lovely colours and participated in a range of rainbow and raindrop themed activities. They chalked some lovely rainbows onto black card and finger painted a rainbow picture. They played parachute games with a rainbow coloured parachute, did some messy colour mixing, played in some sparkly water and even had time to make a lovely rainbow cake. What a busy morning!
