We recognise the role of context and environment in children’s learning and therefore we will extend children’s learning experience into the wider community through connections with the school and wider school community.
Next week, we and the school will be celebrating the Moon Lantern Festival. This includes making lanterns, which will be judged by Mr White (the principal of the school) for a special competition. We will also be attending the Moon Lantern Festival assembly on Friday 13th September.
We have been learning about the Moon Lantern Festival this week.
Today we began to make our lanterns. We used our learning power of creativity to design and make our lanterns. We used materials such as cardboard, paper, pop sticks, patty pans and tissue paper. Some of our friends from 3IB and 3JM in the school came and helped us. We made lanterns of different shapes and colours, including a dragon, lion and fish lantern.
