Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who made my birthday celebration so memorable. Many thanks for all your kind words, cards and gifts. It was a wonderful day!
Abbey Class has been celebrating Aboriginal Culture with our exciting Arts Day on Thursday. Des Alner, a fantastic art teacher from Shafesbury, came to the school to lead our learning with four different activities:
painting our own Aboriginal journeys, pebble painting, willow weaving and creative pottery with terracotta clay.
We also learn more about Australian Aborigines: their dances, their music and their weapons. Most children tried to play a didgeridoo and some even made the appropriate sound!
Quotes of the day:
“We learnt so much and it was INCREDIBLE!”
“ It was SUCH fun!” “Awesome!” “The best day ever!”
A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
