After the story we drew a picture of ourselves and wrote our name.
In the story, George tells us that everyone is different just like the pebbles at the seaside. We collected some pebbles and then sorted them in different ways, big one and small ones, flat ones and round ones and dark coloured ones and light coloured ones. In the story George throws his pebbles in the sea and says that together we make bigger splash. We had great fun carefully throwing our pebbles in the water making a big splash.
We then looked at some of the things in the book and made them in the sand. We made sofas, cars and televisions!
After lunch we listened to the story again and spoke about what George could do now that he is bigger that he couldn’t do when we was younger. We discussed all the things that we can do now. We all enjoyed crawling on the sand like babies!
We did some yoga poses as part of our PE. It was quite tricky standing on one leg on the sand for the tree pose. We are going to practise each week to get better. We also had great fun chasing bubbles today.
As part of thinking about ourselves we made some self-portraits using things we found at the beach. We worked hard to create some amazing faces. It was a warm walk back up the hill but no one complained, we all showed perseverance and kept going. Well done Starfish!
Once we reached the wall, the children eagerly took turns descending it. But before they could start, we took a moment to revisit the crucial rules of descending the wall safely. Safety is always our top priority, and it's essential to refresh our memories to ensure everyone remains secure during their exciting descent.
To stimulate our imaginations and immerse ourselves in captivating narratives, we delved into our new class book, the Land of Roar. During our discussion, we explored the roles of an author and an illustrator, gaining a deeper understanding of their respective contributions in creating captivating stories. It was fascinating to recognize the different skills and talents required for each role.
In physical education, we embarked on our Yoga Unit, exploring a variety of poses including the rejuvenating sun salutation, the graceful cobra, the comforting child's pose, and the energizing downward-facing dog. It was a fantastic opportunity to enhance our flexibility, balance, and mindfulness through these ancient exercises.
After our lunch, we were ready to delve into the world of drama and imaginary story creation. Within this creative space, we unleashed our imaginations, combining elements of drama and storytelling to construct captivating tales. It was incredible to witness the children's enthusiasm and creativity as they crafted their own narratives.
