Kandinsky’s Fantasy Forest!

Standard

Inspired by Kandinsky’s work, the children created concentric circles and decorated them with pastels.  We then stuck them on to a moonlit tree resulting in a beautiful ‘Fantasy Forest’ effect.

Balloon Blow Up!

Standard

In science we have been learning about oxygen and carbon dioxide.  We made carbon dioxide by mixing baking powder with vinegar in a plastic bottle.  We covered the seal of the bottle with a balloon.  When the baking powder reacted with the vinegar, it released carbon dioxide. The gas filled the balloon and caused it to blow up!

Cooperative Games

Standard

For the month of September we have been working on our teamwork skills in PE through playing a series of cooperative games.  We worked in pairs using the skis which required a lot of patience and cooperation.  We played some group games such as the chain relay, ordering ourselves on a bench without speaking, passing a hoop around the circle without breaking our arm link and we had to try to touch a variety of different sized balls without touching each other! All games required a lot of patience and cooperation with fellow team members.
