We explored different types of weather during the term and were exposed to many sensory experiences to enable us to do this.
This term we have enjoyed making relationships with our new friends. We have explored Dinosaurs and ‘Big ‘feet! We also painted our feet to see if they were big or little. We have explored colours, numbers and sounds through our play with Dinosaurs. Our story has allowed us to explore textures, opposites and size.
Last term we were learning about transport, so we explored the different types of transport in our community. The children loved watching people at the train station and waving goodbye to them, once they boarded the high-speed train. We also took a trip to the harbour, to look at the different boats and the sea.
All the children in France class have been working very hard on their cross-curricula academic tasks and are making good progress, participating in a variety of themed celebration assemblies and festivals.
We have had another busy term with our topic ‘People who help us and helping ourselves’.
In Italy class we have made hand print flowers for our Mums to celebrate Mother’s Day this year. We decided to make flower pictures as we wanted to say: ‘Thanks a Bunch!’
We have begun to study Andy Goldsworthy and how he creates his artwork. We have started to create some of our own interpretations of his style of working with paper leaves and flower petals. All found this to be really exciting as you will see from the pictures. We are looking forward to our next project.
Trinidad class has had lots to enjoy in Terms 3 and 4 – a dance workshop, a cricket experience and weekly swimming, plus lots of learning about the Ancient Egyptians.
The children have been amazed to learn that the Maya invented chocolate, a comprehensive writing system, basketball, a number system and developed a 365 day calendar.
In Panama class we have been looking at colours in our art topic and we have looked at the work of some famous artists who create art using strong colours.
