It has been a very busy week with Sports Day and Refugee week and the children have worked very hard. I am sure they are now ready for a restful weekend! Although Sports Day was cut short courtesy of the thunder storm, the children competed excellently and showed great sportsmanship. I have attached just a few photos of the day, as I was so busy cheering the children on, I forgot to take many more - sorry! I'm looking forward to seeing the conclusion of the Sport Day when the finals of the 100m, the 400m and the relays will be run.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Today sees the start of Refugee week which means for this week in school, many of the lessons taught will be linked to refugees. In literacy for example, we will be studying a book called The Whispering Cloth which is about the H'mong people. We will then be producing our own 'whispering cloths' in art. Why not spend some time this week talking to your children about refugees, especially as immigration is such an emotive topic at the moment?
During last term's art lessons, the children studied the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser where the common themes of his work utilised bright colours and rejected straight lines. The vibrant drawings that the children produced in response to their study of this artist are very impressive and so I have included a sample below for you to enjoy.
