🐣Easter Team Day🐣

The morning started with looking at how other cultures and countries celebrate Easter around the world. We were really shocked at some of the traditions, particularly the Hungarian men throwing water over women in exchange for painted eggs! 🤣

Next up we held a debate: Should people who are not Christian celebrate Easter and Christmas? This was an interesting topic, getting us all thinking and backing up our thoughts with real life examples. In the end, a larger proportion of the class thought that they should be allowed in order to show respect for Christianity, to help shops and businesses make money and also to enable people to keep the Easter story alive.

After a spot of Easter coordinates, we used our wonderful outside area to act out our Easter bunny myths. We focussed on narration, working with the audience and using the natural environment to showcase our stories. The myths were fabulous! 👍

Have a fantastic Easter break everyone! From Onyx Class 🥚 🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚

🐣Easter Orienteering 🐣

A HUGE thank you to the PTA and Mrs Minshall-Thomas who set up an Easter Orienteering course for us today! The sun was shining, the grass was green, the birds were singing and chocolate eggs were waiting! 🤣 We had lots of fun and our map reading skills weren’t too bad either! 🤩👍

Welcome back Onyx Class!

Well, what can I say? It’s been wonderful to have everyone back in Onyx class this week! The smiles, banter and fantastic team spirit are definitely what Mrs Coleman and I have missed! 😀

We’d also like to share with you all that we have a new class pet….. sorry, pets….

Welcome Frank and Poppy – two beautiful long tailed tits that grace us with their presence at all hours of the day! 🥰

African printing

Onyx class have been studying the traditional way the African people produce beautiful prints on their fabric called Adinkra. The symbols used on the fabric have a symbolic meaning and tell a story. The class have made their own printing block, which includes a symbol they have designed themselves with a specific meaning to them. They will use this printing block to produce their own Adinkra cloth in the next lesson…..
