The children in Pre-Prep have already begun to let their creative juices flow this week as Year 1 and Year 2 started new topics in Creative Arts.

In Year 1, the children have a Design and Technology focus with their topic ‘Moving Pictures’, this half term. In their first lesson they looked at books that contained moving parts. They examined a book to find out which parts moved, what these moving parts were called and whether these parts added to the enjoyment of reading the book. There were lots of surprises with flaps, sliders and spinners and all the children learnt through having fun! Well done year 1!

In Year 2, there are some blossoming artists. This week, the children used their drawing skills to sketch some of the ‘Significant Buildings in Birmingham’. The children rose to this challenge very well as some of the buildings were very difficult to sketch. They looked very carefully at shapes, used careful marks for the detail and all managed to achieve a composition that looked a lot like the original building. Great work Year 2!
