African Sunsets

And so we come to the end of the final slightly odd week! Huge thanks and congratulations to those still keeping up the momentum with the home learning – and well done to those who are getting to grips with going hither and thither in school. Next week will see some normality – (hmmm!) Much of our work this week has been inspired by World Book Day – and the joy of stories. The children have been making up their own safari stories, scenery, and creating puppets with or without split pins. They have been using adjectives to describe their creature’s habits and movements – and have thoroughly enjoyed the freedom to be imaginative and creative. It has meant that we have been able to watch some super videos of the children as they have performed their stories. A massive well done to those parents who overcame their struggles with technology in order to submit them for us to delight in. We have been thinking about what we would pack in our backpacks for a journey to Kenya. I did think the practicality and pragmatism of some children was hilarious – first aid kits, insect repellent and toilet paper, along with a pillow. “No pyjamas, because I can just wear my shorts and tee-shirt!” Following on from this we attempted some colour mixing collages of African Sunsets – the results were atmospheric, and beautiful.
