Life in the trenches

Today we were looking at what life in the trenches was like in WW1.

We turned our room into a war zone and worked in the trenches.

When we had finished our colouring we had to crawl around the room so the sniper fire didn't get us!

One of our groups got to jump in the deep end of the pool today for the first time!

By the end Tama was jumping in without holding onto the tutor. Great job all of you!

Today is our last day for swimming.

It is amazing the progress the children have made over the last two weeks. Everyone has achieved something that they are proud of.

Last week we made lion paintings to go with our poem.

We looked at the shapes that we could see on a lion head. A diamond face, oval eyes, triangle nose. We also looked at all the colours.

Here are some pictures.

They will be hanging in the hall from next week.
