The phases of the moon
Today we explored the phases of the moon whilst eating Oreos! We described the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth. We had to carefully nibble the white layer to show of the Moon was waxing or waning.
Anglo- Saxon beliefs
The weather wasn’t great today but it didn’t dampen our enthusiasm. The children had to search for primary sources to explain when Christianity returned to England.
We reflected on our Mission Statement and created our own personal ‘Tree of Hope’. The children wanted their paintings to be uplifting and vibrant to celebrate being back together again! They all did a super job and our classroom looks fabulous with the paintings on display!
Stay Home Art
During our first week back, we shared the artwork of Niki Groom ‘Stay Home’ and discussed how life changed during Lockdown. We reflected on the quote, “Even though we are still battling the storm, a rainbow is near.” The class created their own painting to reflect the ‘Stay Home’ message and show thanks to our key workers.
