Through the month of January, our Primary classrooms are learning about space by exploring the planets, solar system, sun and constellations.
Says P4: “The children will explore what each planet looks like and the contents that make up the different planets. There are many different works out in our Science Area which allow the children to continue to learn all about our wonderful Solar System.”
P4 students also learned a “planet song” and did a special art project involving the sun with Ms. Angela.
In the Practical Life Area, there are new works on the shelves such as shoe polishing, plant washing and wood polishing. These beautiful materials encourage independence and order while enhancing fine motor skills, focus and level of concentration.
Says P3: “It is wonderful to see the high level of concentration that the students exhibit while working with these materials.”
P3 students also worked on drawing their self-portraits. “Some of our Kindergarteners have taken on the ‘job’ of leading the other children through their self-portrait work,” P3 continues. “This helps to build on communication skills between the children and helps to make them responsible for the jobs within our classroom.”
