We have been painting boxes to make into farm buildings. Today we worked together with our friends to paint really big boxes.
Today we used our folding and sticking skills to make and decorate Lucky Red Envelopes for Chinese New Year.
We put a pretend coin inside. Chinese children get real money and sweets in their envelopes.
Pips class have been exploring paint and glue to make different types of firework pictures. Don’t they look great!
Firstly we had a story read by a parent in Turkish and their child in English. Then the student taught us a game. Next we made flags or did some colouring relating to Turkey. After that, we were lucky to be taught some Turkish belly dancing (which some of us enjoyed and others of us not so much). Finally, we made Hamsa hands, which included the evil eye for protection.
What absolutely amazing home learning from Pips children (and their parents and carers!). I wish I could have seen you all having that quality time together creating the most wonderful rockets. We even had an alien spaceship.
This week, we have been looking at the story Beegu. We became comic book authors and learned all about speech bubbles. Some of us made some Beegu models and we painted pictures of Beegu. Later on in the week, we were invited to a ‘mini-Olympics’ at Hemel Hempstead leisure centre. The children were amazing and we came in 5th place out of 11 schools! Well done, Acorns!
Fir class creating beautiful Buddha images linked to our learning on Buddhism and Mount Everest.
