The Creative Writing Box
As part of our whole school creativity topic, Miss Whysall delivered each class a ‘Creative Writing Box’. The children were asked to use their imagination to create their own story. The children were fantastic at this!
As part of our Creativity Topic, each class used their imagination to create their very own dance. We had a variety of music and dance routines. The children were amazing!
The children in EYFS were really excited for their daily Creativity Challenge. They were set a different challenge each day to use their imagination and be as creative as they could. The winners each day could wear the Creativity Crown. The challenges were set in all areas of provision both inside and outside, including construction, story telling, drawing, painting, acting and many more!
During our whole school Art Week, the children in EYFS produced their artwork inspired by the artist Piet Mondrian and also our favourite elephant, Elmer! The children explored the work of Piet Mondrian and thought about how they could incorporate this into their own work.
