Truro Class

  What Makes our World Special? Launch Day

Today, Truro class took part in a wide range of learning all based around our new topic. We began the day by listening to calming music and watching clips of breath-taking places from all around our unique planet. We then had a look at some art from another culture – aboriginal Australian art. We learned that as aboriginal tribes did not have a spoken language, they communicated and told stories through dot-art in caves and in their homes. We then tried to replicate this colourful art form to represent Australian animals. Miss Batten was very impressed at our artistic skill and effort!

After break, we took our taste-buds on a trip around the world during an international food-tasting. We tried a variety of different foods to find out what people from other cultures eat. Unsurprisingly, the pizza was extremely popular! In the afternoon, we got inventive by creating our very own countries. Not only did we find out about the flags from different countries, we designed our own by thinking about what is special to us.

 

Welcome back to a fresh new start at Tregolls! Truro class have already made a fantastic start to the year and we are all very excited for the learning that will come over this coming term.
