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!

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.
