What an exciting start to our school year.
We started by looking at rules and expectations and how we need to ‘Be Safe’, ‘Be Ready’ and ‘Be Respectful’. We then discussed our class charter which we all signed and then also sealed with a print of our hands.
We have been looking at our bird of Sikhi – The Crane. We have learnt the significance of the crane in our Gurbani.
We read lots of information on cranes, learnt about alliteration, similes and used amazing adjectives to help us write a poem.
Using various types of shading, we have been sketching the crane. We learnt that we don’t not press very hard with our pencil and to hold it loosely to allow us to have gentle marks on our paper and then gradually add detail. The ancient Japanese art of paper folding – origami was great fun and we loved making our own birds.
