First Class have settled back into school life very quickly since the holidays and have been engaged in many interesting learning activities.
In Ethical Education we explored the concept of making a difference; by listening to and discussing ‘The Starfish Story’. We thought about what we could do to make a difference in our world, no matter how small. We came up with some really worthwhile ideas such as recycling, giving to charity, taking care of friends when they are hurt and taking responsibility at home by cleaning up.
We have been exploring the theme ‘Space’. Look at some of the beautiful art work from our classes. We drew planets and coloured them with oil pastels. We painted the background and with watery paint. The wax resists the paint as wax and water don’t mix. We think they look out of this world!
We also had a lovely visit from Fiona and her dog Jake. They came from Dogs Trust to teach us how to be safe around dogs. We learned about how to approach a dog when parents and the owner give us permission.
