It has been a very exciting week for class O2!
On Monday, we had an excellent start to our week with our trip to the Purcell School of Music. We had been invited to a concert performed by Year 11 students at the school and were amazed at the talents on show. We were treated to a variety of music from around the world; from Africa to Ireland. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to join in on some of the songs and the students made us feel very welcome. We then spent the afternoon working on our African animal fact files by typing the facts we had researched onto the computer.
On Tuesday, we completed our artwork inspired by the painting of Henri Rousseau. We completed our landscape pictures before drawing self- portraits to put into our landscape to create the finished picture. See our gallery for a few examples! We also began our history topic looking at different forms of communication. We discussed ways of communicating in the past and learnt about Egyptian hieroglyphics, before having a go at writing our own messages using these symbols.
Wednesday saw the eagerly anticipated arrival of Don Rae! After waiting all morning, we spent the afternoon working with Don to learn two dances based around our topic of Africa. We impressed Don Rae and Miss Horton with our dance moves, listening skills and, most importantly, our big smiles! We hope to share both dances with you in our Leavers Assembly next Wednesday.
On Thursday,we were joined by children from reception for the morning. We showed them our classroom, enjoyed playing games with them and then showed them our snack and play routines. In the afternoon, we continued with our history topic by discussing the importance of the printing press and sharing our favourite stories and books.
We finished the week with Arts Day on Friday. We spent the day in our house groups visiting different classes to take part in a variety of art activities, from water music to creating fire pictures. We enjoyed sharing our artistic talents with our house and different teachers and had a really fun day.
Well done O2!
