Good Morning Year 1
I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to complete some super work with your grown-ups. It certainly sounds like you all had busy and amazing Easter holidays full of lots of fun and exciting things. I am really pleased to hear that a few of you have been in contact over the holiday and sent each other pictures and drawings in the post, this is a lovely thing to do and I'm sure it cheered you up...Keep being superstars!
Yesterday I thought it was a good idea to re-point the patio in my garden, George thought it looked fun and decided to help...It was going really well and he followed the safety rules of wearing goggles to use the drill to mix the cement...Until he decided to be a mischievous giraffe and make a sandcastle with my wet cement! What a silly giraffe! Here are some pictures

Art: Today for our Art lesson we are going to be looking at a famous painting of some flowers.
I would like you to research the artist Andy Warhol uisng the internet or books and find out more about him. Below Miss Martin has put some information just incase you can not find any. I would like you to look at his painting called 'Flowers' that was painted in 1964 and try to copy it the best you can. You could use paints, chalk, crayons, pencil crayons, felt tips or anything you have at home to create your picture. You can do this in your Yellow books or on a seperate sheet of paper if you have any at home.
I would really love to see your finished Art work! Don't forget to send me an email with a picture of it!
End of the day story: The story I have chosen today is one that you all like and one I have read to you before in class. It is Bumblebear by Nadia Shireen.
