We have been learning about the artist Vincent Van Gogh, we learnt lots of interesting facts about his life. We focused on his painting 'Starry Night' where we learnt about brush strokes and techniques to create our own 'Starry Night' art work using a silhouette effect. We had so much fun and they all looked amazing!

Thursday 3rd March- World Book Day!

Dragonflies had so much fun on World Book Day where they came to school dressed up as their favourite character from their favourite book. We centred our activities based on the book 'You can' by Steve Antony and we even created our own front cover of the book! The bell rang throughout the day and we 'dropped everything and read' and took part in a World Book Day potato competition!
