Lower Primary Class

This week, the children made mandala’s. We collected leaves from the Maidenhair tree (Ginkgo biloba) and Chinese lanterns (Physalis alkekgenki) which were added to the conkers harvested from the Horse-chestnut tree (Aesculus hippocastanum). We found a surprise in the flower press – some pressed rose petals that described as being “thinner than paper” and “as soft as white flour” led onto the Comparison of Adjectives work – thin, thinner, thinnest. The children set about adding some new adjectives to the Noun and Adjective box while the teacher collected all the phrases spoken by the children to use at a later date with sentence analysis work.
