This week we continued to focus on the Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, also known as the ‘Princess of Polka Dots’.
Our Yayoi inspired home under the stairs continued to be a big hit, so too the castle in the letter room. As well as Yayoi’s polka dots dominating Nursery’s decor, we also focused on the shape ‘square’. The children explored and made patterns in the square shape tray and enjoyed creating their own square art. Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky, we combined our circles and square theme to create our own display of ‘Squares and Concentric Circles’.
In the letter room we focused on the sound ‘q’. The children each made a ‘q’ for quilt fit for a queen.
Today we celebrated ahead of King Charles III’s Coronation. Fun was had by all as we started the celebrations making crowns to wear home. The children played with red, white and blue water beads, re-situated London’s iconic landmarks and embellished royal colourings with a touch of sparkle. We ended the festivities with a scrumptious royal tea party and a boisterous rendition of ‘God Save the King’!
