Coral

Welcome to Coral Class!

 

 Firstly, Happy New Year! I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas holiday!

 

This term our topic question is: ' What's Life like Down Under?'  Have a look at some of the questions your children have generated, which will form the basis for our learning.   Also attached is a copy of the spring newsletter and curriculum map.  As the term progresses I will keep you updated regularly.

 

 

Exploring how the Digestive System works.

If you are wondering how these photos explain how the digestive system works, ask a child in Coral to explain!

AUSTRALIA DAY - 26th January.

In Coral we actually celebrated Australia Day a day early.  We learnt about why Australians celebrate this date and what they do. We baked Anzac Biscuits and chocolate coated lamingtons, as well as making origami Koalas and a range of other activities.  Just like the Australians we had great fun, however the weather was not as favourable!!!

Exploring Tutankhamen's tomb

Today we explored Tutankhamen's tomb as if we were Howard Carter.  We had to describe what we saw, how we felt and imagine what we might have touched, smelt and heard.  We are going to use the experience to write first person diary entries.

RRS FOCUS DAY -

20th June: World Refugee Day.

Today we have been continuing to build on our work this year understanding and looking at the lives of refugees. In class we have thought about what is needed to build a great community and how we can help refugees to become part of our community.  Our tableau pictures below demonstrate some of the qualities we think every community needs. We realised very quickly we needed other people to help us to make things work!
