I WANT MY HAT BACK

 Last Wednesday, our Kindergarten classes had a little surprise!

We were lucky enough to have David, Otto's dad, who is from the UK come to school to read us the "I want my hat back" story. It was such a great opportunity to listen to some real English input and learn from him. 

We really enjoyed it!

Thank you so much David.

PDI DANCE

 Hey friends! 

To finish off this PDI, we have learnt about New Zealand and an art we hadn't seen before: dance. 

In New Zealand the Haka is a very traditional and special dance performed at weddings, funerals and rugby games!

Our 5th graders have respectfully practiced and performed a Haka you can see in this video below. 




Check out the presentation about Haka to see what we learnt about it!

PDI PAINTING: Learning about Canadian traditions.


Hello friends! This month we have learned eveything about Maple Sugaring and all the Canadians traditions related to it.

We learnt the process involved in extracting the sap from the sugar maples to then make the Maple Syrup. 

Then, we read a book titled "Sugaring-off" and got to know the illustrator Gilles Pelletier. 

Gilles was born in Quebec, Canada, and painted illustrations for children books of Canadian scenery he saw daily around Quebec. 

Each class from school, painted one of those illustrations to then create our own sugaring-off story. 


Below you can see the presentation about Maple Sugaring and read the story

PDI SCULPTURE

 From the 14th to the 18th of March the 2 English teachers went to Dijon, France. We visited the Fine Arts Museum and discovered the amazing sculptor François Pompon from Dijon. He dedicated all his works to animals, his most impressive sculpture was a White Polar Bear made of stone.

We started the unit talking about the artist and his most famous works, then we told the story  " Pompon a Polar Bear in Dijon". 

Children loved the story.
