Welcome to the summer term in Coral. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break and is now enjoying the sunshine. (Lets hope it lasts..!)
This term we have two topic questions. This half term our question is 'What would your narrative be for The Piano by Aidan Gibbons' After half term we will be exploring the question, 'How would you cope if you were shipwrecked on an uninhabited island?' Attached is a copy of the summer newsletter and curriculum maps. As the term progresses I will keep you updated regularly.
During art week in Coral we did lots of varied, interesting and exciting art activities. These included learning about the history of art and mark making, creating charcoal owl pictures, drawing mandalas, making tissue paper butterflies, sculpting clay tortoises and detailed sketching from close up photographs we had taken. Take a look at the phots below.
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!!!
