Dragonfly Class had a creative, fun and productive Arts Week around the theme of ‘Planet Earth 2021’. We explored the book “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth” by Oliver Jeffers and then went on to learn about the ocean animals that are currently on the World Wildlife Fund’s Endangered Species List 2021. This developed skills across the curriculum including measurement in mass (tuna fish are huge!), habitats in science (including food chains, habitats, survival and evolution) plus reading, communication skills, geographical knowledge, climates, physical co-ordination … the list goes on!
The children were fantastic all week: teamwork, perserverance and focus in abundance! A big thank you to them all for making my week such a pleasure whilst producing some brilliant results 🌟 🌟 🌎 🌊 🌟 🌟
