We are entering our second week of our Creative Arts Fortnight, so we thought we would give you a run down of the best bits so far!
Last week we-
Had a visit from Miki the Clown. He taught us some super-dooper magic tricks. We went home and shared these with our parents. Lots of them were very confused by what we did…but we didn’t reveal any of the secrets!
We also started to learn to juggle with three balls. Mr File was able to break down the skills into smaller steps. He said that if we speak the actions, for example “throw, throw, drop, catch” then our brain would work better and we would learn the skills quicker. Lots of us have been practising at home.
We also created our own clown faces and costumes, as well as character descriptions. Designed our own magic boxes and wrote a special poem about “My Magicial World!”
We are really looking forward to this week. We will be Beach-combing, making paper, designing wind-chimes and tree hangings. We will also have a visit from Indian guests to teach us all about Rangoli Patterns!
