OUR INCREDIBLE LEARNING JOURNEY ARCHIVE

Autumn 2:

Art:

We devoted an entire day to Art this week. We created our own patterns through use of print based on our cultural backgrounds. This was inspired by our research into the work of Delita Martin.

We made cute little reindeers for our Christmas hoops. Have a look 🙂

The process:

Victorian Day 20.11.20

We dressed up for Victorian day. We experienced a typical day in a Victorian school with the 3 R’s: reading, writing and arithmetic. We then explored different Victorian toys and games and read through some fun non-fiction books on the strict Victorians.

 

We looked at examples of different Victorian toys. We then made our own Jack-in the box to play with.
