Art Gallery 

We do lots of art and craft.  To the children it is sticking, gluing and painting but really they are learning to: choose their own resources, be creative, recognise colours, control a pen or paintbrush, take turns and share.  We talk about what we are doing and why and link it into our topic of the week.  Don't worry if your child has not made something that the other children have: we encourage all the children to have a go but some prefer to do other activities and whatever they do at Cherry Trees they are always learning!
