We started this term by discussing our class charter and looked at our school rules – be ready; be safe; be respectful – and how important it is to adhere to this when we’re at school. We talked about how we can be great learners by always being kind to each other, support others in need, respect everyone and remember the Khalsa values at all time.
We also talked about how to face challenges when things get difficult. We shared our experience about when we had to persevere and how we overcome an obstacle. We listened to each other and helped each other to turn our negative in to a positive. It has been really inspiring to see how the children have grown and grown in strength in the last few months.
In Art this month, we have started to learn about a new artist, Jean Michel Basquiat. We have learned many different facts about Basquiat and what type of artist he was. The children will be producing their own “Basquiat-inspired” artwork later this term.
For Science we have started this term by learning about animals including humans. Children have been learning about bones and skeletons. They are beginning to identify the different names of the bones and functions and why it is important.
In writing, we have started by learning Alan Peat sentences which children will be using in their extended piece, persuasive writing. We have also looked at how to extend our sentences and ideas by using different a range of conjunctions. By the end of the term, the children will be writing about the importance of washing hands as a way to contain the spread of the virus.
