|Out Door Learning|
| Forest School || This term the children will participate in Forest School. Each week the children will visit the woods and take part in a range of activities from identifying the trees and animals in our woodland to using tools, making fires and building shelters. || |
|Art Therapy||This term the children will take part in Art therapy. This is an opportunity for children to explore feelings through creative action. Children will use a range of media and themes to delve into their emotional landscapes. Media includes clay, charcoal, paint, sewing, mosaic, collage and 3-d crafts. Each activity builds on the children’s self-esteem and encourages them to go through a process, building on their own individual ideas with the techniques they are gaining knowledge and awareness of. The work will offer a space to discuss and share their real and imagined stories and ideas. The children are encouraged to evaluate the work and to relate it to how they feel, with ideas in how to use creativity as a means of powerful expression to aid their learning and emotional wellbeing.|
|Art|| This term in Art we will be studying the artwork of Alfred Wallis. The children will explore how to improve mastery of art and design techniques to make artwork related to the sea and seaside. |
