On Friday, we had a go at potato printing. We made repeated patterns of a shamrock using the colours of the Irish flag.
Ms Menzies, a mummy from our class came into Oak and talked about Southern Ireland. She shared photographs of her family who live near Dublin. We listened to some Irish music and had a go at dancing to it. Ms Menzies then retold an Irish folktale and we finished off the afternoon tasting soda bread – delicious!
We went to the woods with Sycamore Class today. We made rubbings of a variety of natural materials found in the woods using chalk and wax crayons. We made rubbings of leaves, bark, sticks and feathers. We then played Speedy Treasure Hunt where we needed to find the items called out by the adult.
We are learning about Ireland this week. We looked at a map of Britain and Ireland and identified some features and found out other facts about the country. We made gingerbread rugby players and kitted them out in the Irish rugby kit.
We went on a scavenger hunt today! We collected leaves, feathers, conkers, acorns and other natural materials which were then stuck on paper crowns.
See what a few of us got up to yesterday in the school grounds!
Sorting seeds, potting plants, toasting marshmallows and making mud pies.
We chopped up fruit and blended this with yoghurt and milk to make delicious and healthy smoothies.
We worked in teams to build our fairy houses. We used logs, twigs, acorns, feathers, moss and other natural materials we found in the woods. We had to plan what our houses were going to look like and the materials we would need. We were very proud of our fairy houses!
