We were back to school, just before Halloween and we used our beautiful pumpkins and other natural objects to create some beautiful art work which we then photographed. 
When making her arrangement, Amelia-Rose says, "I've got pumkins at home because it's Halloween. This is a giant squash, let me put an apple next to it." 

Then it was time to celebrate Bonfire Night and learn about Guy Fawkes and why this event is remembered.

We were talking about fireworks and the children then explored a new technique where they splattered their paint from their brush onto the paper to create some amazing paintings. They then added glitter to create the sparkles. 

It made a great back drop for our new Let's Celebrate! working wall. 

We have also been learning about Diwali and explored using sand to create Rangoli patterns.
