We updated our class code today. We thought of five wishes we would like for our class for the rest of the summer term. Each pod came up with a suggestion for the code and we have all agreed to it. Here is each pod's contribution:
Red Rubies: Be kind and play nicely.
We have our class code displayed in our classroom. Earlier in the school year, we each designed our own puzzle piece to show that we agree with the code and are an important part of our wonderful class. Here is a picture of it for you to enjoy:
We have been learning all about the country Australia during our lessons. We have been enjoying using our class atlases to look at the geography of Australia and Oceania (the continent you will find Australia in). We know that Australia is an island and has many different landscapes like deserts, rainforests and beaches. Did you know that Australians call the desert the outback? During our History and Learn Together lessons, we have been learning about the Aborigines who are the indigenous people of Australia. The Aborginal people first arrived in Australia 60,000 years ago and have been living there ever since. The Aborigines have a rich culture. Dreamtime is the name for their spiritual beliefs. Dreamtime has been passed down through the generations through stories and amazing artwork on walls, stones and objects. We have been looking at examples of Aboriginal art and have tried recreating the style in our art lessons. Check out our work below. We have tried to use dots like the examples we saw and include symbols and pictures from the landscape.
