This term we are exploring the beautiful picture book 'Belonging' by Jeannie Baker. This children have been so intrigued by the powerful illustrations on each page. They have been inspired by the story line and have produced some wonderful descriptive pieces of writing.
The children been busy all week finding areas of the school grounds that they feel need improving. On Monday, in groups of they took photographs of areas they felt needed a little attention. Back in the classroom, each group then bravely stood in front of the class and shared their thoughts and ideas about their chosen area. This led to some great persuasive writing.
As a class they voted on which project they felt they should start with. Next week, Class 4 will begin their mini renovation project. They hope to create a space that will be enjoyed by the whole school community and evolve over time.
