Elm class has been busy finding differences and similarities between these houses. We noticed that there were differences in colour, number of windows and the position of the chimney. We even played a game with our partner where we had to guess the odd one out.
In Elm Class this week, we had our first tennis session with Coach Oliver Barnes from Totton and Eling Tennis Club. We thoroughly enjoyed this and he taught us ways to develop our sending and receiving skills. We developed our team work skills, too, by working collaboratively with a partner. We have two more sessions with Coach Barnes before Easter.
This week in Elm Class, we have been generating adjectives to describe the textures of materials which represent polar animals e.g sequin material for an Arctic cod, silicone mat for a seal. In Art, we then thought about how we could represent the texture of different polar animal's fur, scales and feathers using pencils. This is in preparation for us to make our own polar animal out of clay.
In Elm Class, we have started learning to play the ukulele in our music lessons. We have learnt how to handle the instrument and have begun to play it as a group. We have also learnt the parts of the instrument and what they do.
