Welcome to June’s blog. Below is a snapshot of what we have been learning in the classroom.
In English, to help support our butterfly on diversity, we read a book called Gregory Cool. It is about a young boy from London who goes on holiday to see his granny, grandad and cousin for the first time in Trinidad and Tobago. At first, he finds it very difficult living in a new country and adapting to a different culture, but by the end, he absolutely loves it! The children completed numerous writing tasks on this book such as diary entries, letters, postcards and a story setting.
In Maths, we looked at identifying and naming the properties of 3D shapes. Once the children were able to understand what vertices, edges and faces are, we went on a shape hunt around the classroom finding objects which are of those shapes.
In art, we looked at the wonderful work of 'Romero Britto.' His art combines elements of cubism, pop art, and graffiti painting, using vibrant colours and bold patterns as a visual expression of hope, dreams, and happiness. The children used patterns and bright colours to create their own pieces of work.
That is it, for now, folks. We hope you enjoyed our May blog and we look forward to seeing you again in July.
