So, I studied up recorder, times tables and decimal fractions, immersed myself in Ancient Persian mythology and dived on in!
Here are some photos of the work we did!
|not my blackboard drawing, this one.|
Ancient Mythologies as inspiration for the Persian mythology, telling stories about the creation of the earth by Ahura Mazdao, the domestication of animals and the first bonfire!
We also explored the land of contrasts which is Persia (Iran) and drew a map. What fun.
We tried a form drawing of a Persian star, with the help of a bowl and a ruler.
As soon as the week was over, I dived for the knitting needles, and quickly cast on a pixie hat for Mr P: Triskele Threads' new free Ravelry pattern Pixie Tadhg
Reading: or should I say, re-reading, one of our all time favourites!
"Dominic" by the most exquisite William Steig.
Everyone needs to read this book!! I mean it!
It is sublime story about a philosophical dog who sets out to discover the world. At once calming, and lyrical, whimsical and contemplative, healing and utterly charming, Dominic is a special read for all ages!
I started to read it to my class last week, and it made lumps in my throat as always.
