Singing, Signing and Sculpture

We had a great afternoon of art this week, bringing our Alberto Giacometti sculptures to life.  Using wire, the children followed instructions to create a figure with a head, shoulders and long limbs – not as easy as it sounds!  The children then manipulated the sculptures into different positions according to their designs. 

Some of the Year 6 children had the pleasure of taking part in the Christmas service at The Abbey this week. They had a number of hymns to sing and Pihu had a reading to do for the service. It was very much enjoyed by all.

Sunday 3rd December is Disability Awareness Week.  In class we practised greeting each other in sign language and even managed to take the register.  We read about different types of disabilities and how we should treat each other as we would like to be treated and respect people’s differences.

Next week we will focus on property of shape in maths and finally write our stories about Day of the Dead.  

Enjoy the Alban City Christmas Fair tomorrow and have a great weekend.
