We began our circle time by recalling the five circle time skills that we need to use:
Good looking skills
Good listening skills
Good speaking skills
Good thinking skills
Good concentration skills
Today some of the children shared their experiences of feeling lonely and we discussed what they could do if they were ever feeling lonely in the future. We finished our session by working together to pass the rainmaker around the circle without making a noise, they were brilliant at this!
This afternoon the children recapped their learning on the different types of marks we could make and then explored making marks with their feet. Which everyone thought was very funny!
We then moved on to talking about our favourite colours and how different colours can make us feel. After looking at some photos of rainbows, everyone thought about how to choose colours to express emotion by creating a ‘sad’ rainbow.
Our final art activity was to create a self-portrait, in the style of Picasso, using colours to express how we were feeling.
