We thoroughly enjoyed Art Week.
We looked at a painting called An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump. After some discussion about the painting the children decided to follow an inquiry to do with hands. These are the some of the things we got up to.
In numeracy we measured objects in our classroom with our hand span.
We had a visit from our Local Police and they talked to us about finger prints and we had a go at making our finger prints and then we got to sit in the police car.
We read a story called The Kissing Hand. We made hand biscuits with hearts in and they were yummy!
