Given the weather the Biggies took a bit of time to take some photos of the snow clinging to the branches in the playground. They then edited them in snapseed to dramatic effect.
We had an eco focus day last week.
In preparation we did some litter picking on Thursday:
On Friday we started thinking about What A Wonderful World we live in (cue song).
The then looked at the Lyrics of What a Wonderful World and used them to write some poems, here are a few:
To wake up in the morning to see the sun awaking,
To see the grass left with a white covered layer,
To see the tree swaying with the tiniest of breeze,
To see the deer grazing at peace,
To hear the birds chirping happy to be alive,
To feel the earth awakening ready to thrive,
To not know what’s coming next in you life,
To see each animal all worked up inside,
Our earth has things we can’t believe but sometimes it’s the simplest thing that puts us at ease.
Small world, big world,
Rolling around the sun world.
Cold world, hot world,
Full of mud world!
Animal world, dry world,
Weather world, colourful world,
Massive sized world.
Plant world, water world,
Full of food world,
Gravity world, noises world.
Full of wildlife world,
We’re killing our home world.
Big and small,
Tall and short,
Beautiful and ugly I love it all.
Sea and land,
Fish and animals,
I know all like the back of my hand.
We then though about more practice things, how deal with rubbish in School and at home. Where our water comes from and how to stop it all being wasted.
Finally we made some green seed bomb hearts to share some flowers!
On Thursday Afternoon the biggies were working on the Shanari indicator Respect. We were thinking about Team Work, in particular how our problem solving and communication skills fit in.
The class were spilt into random groups and worked their way through several tasks. They did a great job, all scoring highly. Everyone could identify times they had listened and worked together.
We also had fun.
