For the last two weeks our workshops have focused on cultural art, everyone has chosen an artist or a painting they wish to either copy or interrupt, we have had some amazing results, the art work is of a very high standard! For homework this week we have asked everyone to write about how their art work makes them feel, in the language of their choice. I am hoping to display these in my area I use when working with children who have English as an additional language.
Next week will be our last workshop until we return to school in September. Mrs Holmes and I thought it would be nice to have our own 'end of term party'. This will give us the opportunity to discuss with you what you have enjoyed, thoughts you have on what else you would like to do in our workshops and support you may need from us, now or in the future. Please feel free to bring any food from your country you would like to share with the group.
Secondly, I have started a Polish 'Storytime' on Tuesday afternoons. Mrs Oles has very kindly been coming in and reading, in Polish, to our Polish children, so far we have read stories and poems by Jan Brzechwa The children seem to love it and have already started to bring in some books of their own.
Ate a proxima vez,
Mrs Sheldrick and Mrs Holmes
