Arts Week!!!

Arts Week 2011

Reception had lots of fun during Arts Week. The theme for Arts Weeks was Africa and we produced some lovely African art work.

Some of the Art activities we carried out included fabric and fruit printing. We also read lots of African stories and enjoyed learning about the African animals.

We designed our own patterns and printed them onto fabric!

Do you like our African patterns???

Reception really enjoyed fruit printing!

We learnt the names of many exotic fruits!

We had to be very careful when printing onto fabric!

The art rollers made it easier to spread the paint over
our patterns

During story time we really enjoyed listening to
African stories
