Today we displayed some of the work we did during Intercultural May. We chose Romania as our country of study and based our projects on tourism! We researched many different popular tourist attractions in Romania and will present our projects on stage tomorrow!
Also on display are our junk art projects. We've put a huge amount of work into our castles which were inspired by Bran Castle! Also known as Dracula's castle! We looked at lots of pictures and identified lots of features of the castle. Then we built our own castles using junk, showing some of the features of Bran Castle! We hope you enjoy our display!
The Beech class is hard at work today on their junk art castles inspired by Bran Castle in Romania! We're looking forward to showing off the finished product next week at Intercultural Day 2019!
We had some visitors today who were here to talk about some of the experiences that people with autism have each day. We learned about different sensory challenges that can occur for people with autism and ways to help those around us with autism. It was so informative and fun too!
Annie rehearsals are in full swing. Today we started working on our performance with other classes! We're all very excited and can't wait to show it off!
Today in the Beech class we are listening to relaxing piano music and doing some still life art. We were practicing adding tone and shading to our drawings before the spring break. Today we chose something from the room and are working on a still-life sketch!
