We have been so busy and have had such fun! As you can see we have learnt South African songs which some of you may have heard, and today we performed our South African dance which can be viewed on the school blog. We have also learnt to make clay Meerkats (These are in the kiln room awaiting firing)and even produced meerkat comic strips on the ipads. Our needle-felted fish are now on display in the class room and we are beginning to create our batik and sewing dancers. We have written super stories retelling a traditional South African fable and created those lovely traditional designs which can be seen on the wall outside our room. We have also learnt about the continents and have completed a map of South Africa with a key.
Today Eagles had the opportunity to work with local ceramicist Julie Fowler to create a sensational sea turtle, linked to their World Awareness country, Fiji.
We created a time lapse video, spanning 3 hours of the day and the progress the children made.
Here are just a few photographs taken over the course of the week for you to enjoy. We have been so busy that we couldn’t post on the blog for each individual activity. These photos show a range of things that we have been up to such as making African instruments, drawing maps , looking at photographs from Namibia and even learning songs and stories.
Can you spot Namibia on our maps of Africa?
