Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

You can practise drawing a sphere with a pencil or crayon. You need to focus on the highlights and the shading and remember to blend in circles, not straight lines. You will need to add a shadow on the shaded side of your sphere. For the highlight, you can use a rubber to erase any smudges. The link below shows how to draw and shade a sphere:
When you have finished, can you draw a spherical object in your house? Maybe a piece of fruit, a pebble or a ball. Remember the importance of shadow and highlight.
If you want to challenge yourself, you could draw a spherical object in your house and create highlight and shade using a different medium. Instead of pencil, maybe you could use paint, tissue paper, crayons, chalk, anything you like, it is up to you.
Please feel free to send finished pictures to me on seesaw and I can display them on the website.
I can’t wait to see what you will create!
