Our Spring Display. Children have worked really hard this term to create a wonderful, bright and cheerful spring display with lots of wonderful writing answering the question – What would you find at the end of the rainbow? They have developed colour mixing skills as well as exploring form & texture. Children had fun sticking strips of paper for the grass and working with a variety of media to make flowers and spring animals. If you look closely you can see the Giant’s legs coming from the ceiling as he climbs down our beanstalk!

Dragons and fire. I am a TA and this is a recent display; actually two really that I put together. On the left are dragons that the children drew and painted, alongside a large dragon that I modelled to the children. Oh, we did have some fun doing those! The dragons are on the English display because they were used to generate adjectives and adverbs. On the right, I put together The Great Fire of London display. Photographs will go up with it. Amazing what we can fit on a small bulletin board!

Aliens. Having read Q Pootle 5, we found a crashed spaceship in our outdoor area. The children loved investigating the ‘crash’, wrote about it, and then imagined the aliens that might have visited us by blow painting them. Great emergent writing by Reception children.
