Our focus this week has been on getting creative, having fun and continuing to build those friendship bonds as a class by playing lots of whole class games.
In English, we practised our storytelling skills by sitting on the field in a large circle and playing the ‘build a story’ game where the children go round the circle, only saying one word at a time to add to and build a story. It is lots of fun, results in outrageously silly stories but really does make children realise a story can go in any direction and helps break their moulds of what a story should be.It’s a fun game to play as a family going on walks as well.
In art, we have been looking at weather and this week we covered the sun. The children created some wonderful sunset paintings learning how to mix colours and use light, directional strokes to blend to create an effect.
