The Stars class read the book ‘No Matter What’ for LGBT month. We were all responsible citizens and felt we are all the same no matter what we look like or what our families consist of. We did lots of activities including making rainbow flag cupcakes, rainbow love heart pictures, rainbow hand prints and printed a purple picture of grapes. Our week finished with purple activities in the hall which were great fun.
On Friday afternoon we were all effective contributors and took part in LBGT Activities. Each Class planned an activity and then we all got a turn to carry it out – there was jigsaw hunting, purple sensory activities, painting a rainbow canvas, making purple hand prints and testing the pH of different liquids.
Our Class Activity involved lots of different colourful fruits – they were set out like a rainbow and you had to choose pieces and make a funny face on a paper plate and then taste them.
Photos to follow.
Round two of knitting for the Oak room, we failed our first attempted so we gave a new technique a try. We were much more successful! We all worked together, we were effective contributors and managed to make three bracelets.
Our LGBT story is about Raffi, who likes to knit. He worries about liking things that others do not. He is worried that people will make fun of him because he likes different things and not the same as everyone else.
Raffi learns that his he has a talent of knitting and this can be used to help others and make people happy.
In the Oak class we have been learning about what makes us different from everyone else and that we are amazing just the way we are. All our hard work will be shared in our class assembly tomorrow to celebrate LGBT.
Next Friday we will celebrate LGBT and the acceptance of who you are, ‘Proud To Be You’. This is our class theme for the month of February.
We tried and tested our activity that will be completed on LGBT Purple Friday. We are making a rainbow canvas wall art, with the phrases ‘LOVE’ or ‘PROUD’. We will post the finished design next week.
We were successful learners in listening and following the instructions to create our rainbow design.
