To start year four, we have been looking at our bird of Sikhi – The Crane.
The children have learnt the significance of the crane in our Gurbani.
We have taken a vast amount of information and learnt how to annotate it, allowing us to extract the relevant parts. We revised using a dictionary to look up any words we did not understand. As a class we discussed various types of Alan Peat sentences, brain stormed some amazing adjectives and looked at enhancing our work using similes. We then proceeded to write a poem on the crane.
We have also been sketching the crane, using various types of shading. The ancient Japanese art of paper folding – origami was great fun and the children loved making their own birds.
