This term, year one have had a fantastic time exploring our Enquiry: What do artists do? We have looked at different artists and their work, written questions, interviewed a real artist, used ipads to record dots around us, practised our sketching skills, used paints to mix, created dotty pictures and been adventurous, creating our own HUGE dotty art piece! Phew!
Mercury Bubble have really enjoyed our last week of Term 3! We have continued to be creative and made our own Art gallery. We have been looking after our well-being with yoga, self- defense, mindfulness and breathing exercises. We have also learnt more about keeping safe online during our whole school Safer Internet Day. We loved our Valentines and Chinese New Year activities too. Take a look at some of our learning and fun!

Mercury Bubble had fun being Scientists for our Working Scientifically afternoon. We enjoyed making predictions, setting up the experiment then carrying out our test. We used our observation skills to look carefully at our results to reach our conclusion.
Mrs Herbert's bubble star of the week is Norah. Mrs Herbert said: "Our Venus bubble star this week is Norah. She’s been a really adventurous writer and written some fantastic questions that she’d like to ask our artist Liane Tancock. We’re very proud of you Norah, well done."
As artists we created a gigantic dot collage using different media. It was fantastic fun!
Mercury bubble also went dotty for dots!
Year 1 loved launching our new Enquiry - 'What does an artist do?' We came in our dotty clothes and then read 'The Dot' by Peter H Reynolds. We then really enjoyed using our art skills to turn dots into animals, people and monsters! After that we went on a dot hunt around the playground and classroom. We used the Ipads to take photos of all the dotty things we found!
Venus bubble have also created some fantastic hats from their designs. Don’t they look amazing!
Amazing hat design and build in school- we felt super proud of ourselves!!!
