Take One Picture

posted 4 Jul 2017, 06:35 by Laura Mathews

This week, we launched our project. First, we planned an adventure story about a person who goes on an adventure. They set sail on a boat and a storm washes them onto a strange, magical island. The children used the Odysseus story in the background of the painting to inspire their writing. We acted out the story and then made plans on large sugar paper.

Take One Picture Launch

posted 5 May 2017, 09:32 by Laura Mathews   [ updated 7 May 2017, 10:04 ]

This week, we had our first look at the painting for our 'Take One Picture' project which will begin in the summer. Miss Mathews was very sneaky and cut the picture into lots of small pieces. First, we were only able to take one piece of the picture. We recorded what we could see using our developing spelling skills. Next, we had to put the picture back together as a group. This was quite tricky! 
             

Finally, we got to explore the whole picture and we discussed with Miss Mathews what we would like to create based on the painting.

After watching videos of Rio 2016 and the throwing events, we were inspired to improve our throwing skills. We developed our technique and accuracy when throwing by playing a number of games. 
Next week- Jumping!
