For our final Shared Education activity this year, we discussed what a rainbow was and gathered colourful objects, natural and man-made from our school environment. We worked successfully in our groups to create a rainbow with the materials we collected.
We decided to use our natural materials to make a Rainbow Tree. We had great fun collecting all the different colours. We added a sky in for the blue.
We developed our drama skills using the story 'The North Wind and The Sun'. In our groups we used mime and collected resources to bring the story to life. We had great fun getting into the roles and adapting to different scenarios!
We enjoyed listening to videos and sounds clips which inspired our creations. We experimented making loud, soft, fast, slow, long and short sounds. We used our bodies and natural equipment to create the sounds of different weather conditions.
Unfortunately lots of our videos would not upload but we cannot wait to tell our new friends all about them on zoom on Tuesday.
The children experimented with a range of materials to create beautiful 'Spring/Summer' themed Stick Mobiles! They worked well in groups and used lots of team work and compromise to complete their task. We used a glue gun to help us attach our natural decorations and are delighted with how they turned out.
We had great fun making our mobiles. We had so many sticks we made a simple one each. We helped each other hold and tie our string.
The children discussed different elements of weather, they then experimented with a range of materials to make a strong structure. We decided to make kites. This kept us busy on two very wet days, we look forward to trying them out next week!
Children identified aspects of the environment that are important to birds and their safety. They are aware of a range environmental factors that influence bird behaviour when selecting their nest site. They worked in groups to create their nests using twigs, moss, little stones, leaves and grass.
Children observed and discussed transient artwork and the objects used. They collected natural materials, described the textures they felt and created fantastic artwork working together in groups.
Our lesson began with the children observing and discussing the natural things in our school environment.
We talked about their opinions, what they liked and disliked . They used their imagination to draw and label the 'perfect' woodland area. We learnt about the sustainability of their woodland design.
