Every morning we start working straight away! There is always a challenge for us on the board. This is a "warm up" for the rest of the day! In one of these challenges we had to find out which was the odd one out and write the reason why. Now that we are in Year 1 we are able to write full sentences!
Year 1 have been learning about the Philippines during International Week. We learnt about the flag, national costumes, national dishes, popular sports and other information about animals and wildlife.
We dressed up in traditional Filipino costumes and even made a popular 'merienda' (snack) called Turon.
We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!
Last week we learnt about Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si. In his letter, Pope Francis urged us all to do our part in caring for our 'Common Home'. Our mission in Year 1 was to help highlight the importance of saving the rainforests in our world. Deforestation is ruining God's creation and we pledge to help put an end to it! We designed 'Rainforest Wind Up Wonders' so that we always remember that the rainforest is home to many beautiful animals, plants and tribes.
St Francis' Canticle is what inspired Pope Francis to write Laudato Si. The canticle is full of imagery related to the creation of the earth. Year 1 created some artwork based on St Francis' Canticle using press printing. They were very colourful!
In Music we had the chance to play drums and experience Samba! It's a brazilian rythm...to warm us in these freezing days!
The Mad Hatter's Tea Party
We were very busy in the last weeks preparing our Tea Party in Kite Studios and this morning we baked the delicious jam tarts with Etain!
We had lots of fun in our Tea Party! Thank you all for coming!
