All the b's; butterflies, balloons, bears and balls!
What a dreary, wet week we have had! Good job life in Nursery is full of fun and madness! This week we have been learning about snails as our Minibeast of the Week. We have learnt about the body parts of a snail, watched Jess from Minibeast Adventures with Jess who has told us lots of facts, and made own our reproduction of a piece of modern art!
Did you know snails have thousands of teeth! No neither did we!
Here are some examples of our snail masterpieces which have been inspired by the artist Henri Matisse. After suffering from ill health, Matisse was no longer able to paint works of art. So he took up collage, but named it 'Painting with Scissors'. So, in conjunction with revisiting 2D shapes for a second week, we have been modern artists too!
