What Makes Us Human

Rimon class has had a wonderful start to the new year.  We have had great fun in our first week getting to know each other and playing lots of games.  We have all been very excited about getting started on our topic for this term ‘What makes us human’. Over the next few weeks we will be learning all about humans.

This week in science we started learning about the parts of our body including our bones.  We made life sized cut outs of the children to help us learn where each of the body parts are.  In literacy, we have been introducing ourselves and finding out differences and similarities between us.  This has been really fun as it is an opportunity to discover more and more about each other.  In maths, the children have been impressing Miss Scott with what they know.  We have been recapping maths concepts from last year and are ready for getting our maths brains switched on for the coming weeks.

In topic and art we are excited to create portraits using many famous artists for inspiration. Last week we began by looking in mirrors at the features on our faces and sketching the outlines of our faces.  I must say we may have the next Andy Warhol in Rimon class! The children will also be making timelines of their lives in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on Seasaw for all this amazing work.

I must say it’s been a great first week and we are looking forward to see what this year brings us.

Shabbat Shalom,
Aine Scott
