Middlies 1/2 from Hana
Here in the Middlies 1/2 everyone has returned refreshed and ready for whatever term 3 throws our way. Marina and I are looking forward to a full term with the children (fingers crossed). We have been impressed with the adaptability that the children have shown over the past 2 terms. They have reminded us that learning really can take place in any context and that we must make the most of the time that we do have together.
Last term we learnt about seasonal change, what factors drive seasonal change, what this means for us in our lifestyles and what we can observe in the sky and landscapes when these changes are occurring.
During Autumn and our home learning time we learnt more about deciduous trees. The children hunted and found beautiful collections of leaves from deciduous trees in their local area. They were asked to sketch their leaf then to create an embroidery of this leaf using an autumnal colour palette. This took many hours and most leaves were completed at school during art and choosing lesson. The final pieces of work are stunning and look fabulous when displayed together in our classroom.
