Art based on Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist and sculptor who works in the natural environment using natural materials. 
We thought we would link our art work to our topic on nature, that we are focusing on this term. 

 A sunflower

 An Autumn tree
 A flower
 Two stars

 A rainbow on the sand

Some fantastic ideas and creations from Year 1

The life cycle of the sunflower

Having learnt about the life cycle of the sunflower in a lesson, some of the children practised acting it out in the playground and performed to the rest of the class.

Plants around our school

The children have been producing a leaflet to show which plants can be found in the grounds of Sandridge school.

Today we found a new plant that we didn't see on our initial plant hunt last week. With the help of Mrs Virgi in the office, we were able to name it.

Do you know what this is called? 

Cuckoo flower. 

Here are  a few pictures of the children working on their leaflets.
