It has been a busy but fun first week back after the Christmas break. The children started thinking about their new unit of inquiry: How we express ourselves. For the first week, the children focused on visual arts, sculpting and painting.
The children have made some beautiful paper sculptures. After looking at the technique to create the sculptures, the children made their own designs using colours of their choice. They should be very proud of their work.
We have also considered different forms of self-expression and the children made pictures to express different feelings and emotion. Their work has is accompanied by a short piece of writing to explain their thoughts.
In math, after a long break, it seemed appropriate to give the children the chance to refresh their memories on the basic math functions and so we have spent the week putting in some valuable practice.
