Universal Children’s Day!

November 21, 2019

What seemed like a short week was full of creative and compassionate learning.

We celebrated Universal Children’s Day and thought about the rights of children all over the world. We had a special guest, Jacob Warn, who is part of Action for Education, an NGO that focuses on providing safe spaces and education opportunities for refugee children and young people. We showed our kindness by donating some coins, here is the link of the charity if you want to donate anymore https://www.justgiving.com/actionforeducation-prism.

We participated in a music workshops based on Teacup and explored how senses are linked to noises. We recreated a storm using our voices and bodies:

In maths, we have been practising column addition with regrouping. We have used dienes to learn what happens when we need to exchange.

In English we used our powerful words from last week to write poems about nature.
