Making Smoothies!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Planets class made some fruit smoothies today. As part of our ILP targets, we were preparing a range of fruit by removing the skin and chopping them into small pieces. We had bananas, apples, strawberries and raspberries. We used orange juice and yogurt in the blender and were very pleased with our results. We also were all brave enough to give our smoothies a little try!

Aladdin Slime!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Planets Class enjoyed making theme related slime today! We attempted to make it blue and added silver glitter and sprinkles.

We loved mixing the solution and watching as it thickened and consistency and were all very brave at touching the slime when it was ready!

Salt Dough Magic Lamps!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Planets Class enjoyed working together to create salt dough magic lamps. We split into two teams to carry out this task and really enjoyed forming the dough into lamp shapes.

We painted and decorated our magic lamps to look similar to the lamp in the film ‘Aladdin’.

Finally, we enjoyed using baking soda and vinegar to create a magical eruption from our lamps!

Digital Learning Week in the Planets Class!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Planets class enjoyed some digital learning opportunities this week. We read an interactive e-book called ‘Jake’s First Day’ which related to pirates and treasure maps. We looked at a treasure map and drew different routes to get the pirate to the treasure.

We also used our fine motor skills to colour in tigers and draw our own stripes. We loved doing this!

Sorting Treasure Items!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Planets class enjoyed looking closely at treasure items. We sorted them into colours and shapes using tweezers. We also enjoyed looking closely at some of them using magnifying glasses.

We learned some of their names including rubies, emeralds and sapphires and played a “can you find….?” game.

Finally, we researched our birthstones.

Musical Magic Carpets

* CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Planets class loved playing a movement game today. We used the rules of musical chairs and created an Aladdin theme game of ‘Musical Magic Carpets’ which we all really enjoyed.

Everyone loved joining in and finding a magic carpet to sit on when the music stopped.

Finally, we enjoyed some Bollywood style dancing to end our move and groove session.

Exploring Arabian Cultures

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Planets class enjoyed looking closely at Princess Jasmine’s clothing and make up. We looked at materials that would be used for her outfits and attempted to make our own jewelled designs on our faces using sticky gems.

Finally, we looked closely at mehndi patterns on hands, followed the pencil control patterns and created our own. We also enjoyed a calming hand massage.
