Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Hello and welcome to Reception at Holywell Primary School

We are a two form entry school and our two Reception classes work together, We also enjoy choosing outside with our Nursery friends, making for good transition through our Foundation Unit. The children enjoy a mixture of adult-led and child-led learning and the children choose their own topics for learning. Throughout the year Foundation Stage get to access one of our two forest school sites and enjoy cooking on the fire, whittling and using a bow saw to make a variety of different objects.

Transient Art

In art week, REO focused on Transient Art for our theme. We did some research and looked at Transient Art on the computer. First we needed to collect some materials from around the outdoors…  Then we could produce our own masterpieces…   We think you are all artists!
