Elm Class were inspired by our current literacy text, Gregory Cool, to write kennings poems about the sea. We listened to sounds, watched a video of the waves lapping against the shore, and looked at paintings to inspire us.
In our topic lessons, Elm Class have been studying natural disasters such as volcanoes and Earthquakes. We learned what to do in the event of an earthquake and practised following these guidelines when we heard the alarm sound!
In Art this week, we looked at the work of Henri Matisse and were really inspired by his paper cutting. We had a go ourselves by listening to Jazz music, watching some classmates dance and then making a collage from our paper cuttings.
