Mr Carey’s CE1 homework- for 02nd March

Dear Students,

Welcome back! Thank you all for reading ‘An Enormous Crocodile’. I hope that you have already brought your reading book for March, ‘The Snail and the Whale’. We will begin this book next week so bring it to class with you!

NOTE: Please check that your child completes all ‘corrections’ highlighted in their orange copybook this weekend. Some children are especially falling behind in their spellings because they are not completing their spelling homework properly in the beginning (to learn the words by heart is the goal). When we revisit these spelling words in future tests they will not know how to spell the words. Thanks

Homework:

Jobs:

  1. Please watch the following videos on ‘jobs’ three times each. There are lots of wonderful English sentences to hear and learn. We will discuss the jobs in the video next week in class so be prepared!
  2. Please write a list of 10 jobs that you hear in the videos in your cahier de devoirs, for example: Dentist. Check your spellings because the words are written in the videos for you to copy!

Thank you,

Mr Carey

CM March 04 HW

Mr Carey’s CE1 group – for 03rd February

Dear Students/Parents,

Two reminders to parents:

1) Homework has to be completed for every Monday and in the cahier de devoirs (unless otherwise stated/sometimes we use the workbook also). Parents must ensure that the work is completed and to a high standard. They must also sign the copybook and ensure that corrections are completed in the copybook. Some students come repeatedly unprepared or half prepared for our class on Monday. Let’s change this so that our children keep progressing and learning.

2) Four color pens only are allowed in English class. Students are bringing all sorts of pens to class or forgetting their pens all together. We use the four colors for various tasks.

This week

1) Reading:

Please continue to read ‘An Enormous Crocodile’ until the moment where Muggle-Wump the monkey saves the children from the crocodile seesaw (page 16 in my edition). You can also listen to the story as you read along on the youtube video I posted last week.

2) Writing:

Please write the following sentences carefully into your orange class copybook (no spelling mistakes). Then read the text three times:

My Reading Book

The author of the book is Roald Dahl.

The title of the book is ‘An Enormous Crocodile’.

The story is set in Africa.

The story begins in a muddy river in Africa.

The main character is an enormous crocodile.

He is a very greedy and hungry crocodile.

He is not a kind animal. He is very unkind.

He is mean!

Dear Students,                    Image result for telescope clipart free

Well done on your hard work for the Dialogue Competition. It was great fun for all of us. I’m proud of how hard you worked.

I am sure you all have your copy of the new BEAR book by now. Please bring it to class on Monday so we can read out of it together.

Here is your new homework assignment:

CE2 Homework 14 – January 27, 2020

Happy studying,

Mrs T’s CM Group – for 27 January 2020

Dear Students/Parents,

Well done on your hard work for the Dialogues Competition. It was great fun for all of us. I am sure you all have your copy of « Danny Champion of the World » by now and have started reading it. It is a wonderful story and I look forward to discussing it in class with you. Image result for danny champion of the world free clipart

As your read please think about the story.  How does it make you feel? Is the plot fast-paced or slow-moving? Is the plot witty, clever, mysterious or adventurous?  If there are words you do not understand, try figure them out by looking at the context of the paragraph or search for the meaning in a dictionary or online! We’ll be looking at some of these interesting words this week for our spelling test.

Here is your new homework assignment.

CM Homework 14 – January 27, 2020

Dear Students/Parents,

By now you should have all obtained a copy of our reading book ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ by Roald Dahl. We are working on this textbook in class at the moment. Do not worry if your child finds it challenging at first. Encourage them to use the ‘phonics’ which they learnt in CP to help them with new words.

You are required to read the first 8 pages (until the Rol-Poly Bird flies away) for next Monday 27th January.

Please have ordered the other reading texts by now so that there will be no delays in receiving them (see previous ‘BEAR’ blog posts if you are still unsure).

To help your child in reading the text we are working on key vocabulary in class this week. Their spellings this week come from this vocabulary.

Also, I would advise that your child listen to the following recording on YouTube and read along (the book is in three parts on YouTube). This is a learning aide, it is NOT a substitute for reading the text. It will help with pronunciation and comprehension however.If your child does not read the text aloud to an adult, they will lose much of the benefits of this reading programme.

HOMEWORK:

1) Practice the spelling words in your cahier de devoirs x 3. Cover, Copy, Check:

you crunch nuts/an enormous crocodile/mud/river/a muddy river/pig/piggy bank/my jaws/a long bone

2) Read along with the following recording of ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ until the Roly-Poly bird flies away (page 8 in my edition). If the link below does not work, simple enter the following in your YouTube searchbar:

The Enormous Crocodile (part 1)

 

Thank you for your hard work. The children are making lots of progress!

Dear Students/Parents,

Well done on your hard work in learning the dialogues for the upcoming competition. I am sure you all have your English copy of ‘Matilda’ by now and have started reading it. It is a wonderful story and I look forward to discussing it in class with you.

As your read it please think about the characters. Ask yourself whether these characters behave well or not; describe the characters to yourself; think of examples of actions that show who they are. Think about the story. How does it make you feel? Is it exciting, or slow-moving? Is the plot witty or clever? If you do not understand words, search for the meaning in a dictionary or online!

1)

Read the first ten chapters and be ready to work on these chapters in class. You may be tested also in class so be prepared!

(Chapter One: The Reader of Books to Chapter ten: Throwing the Hammer)

2)

Spelling words: a disgusting blister/ blinded by adoration/ offspring/ a revolting grasshopper/ occasionally/ her nimble mind/ the proud, doting parent

3) Reminder: The dialogue competition takes place on Friday so please revise the dialogues. Your child has TWO dialogues which he/she was supposed to have learnt by heart last week.

Thank you and keep working hard,

Mr Carey

Dear Students/Parents,

Well done on your spelling test ‘paragraph’ on Monday. Many students scored top marks for perfect spelling. Keep it up!

As you may have seen on the blog already, a ‘Dialogue Competition’ is coming up next week on Friday 24th January. For Monday’s homework I will test your child on the dialogues we have chosen in class. These are mostly dialogues that we have learnt already in the last term (such as ‘At a restaurant with friends/ Booking a Doctor’s appointment’ etc) so your child is already familiar with them.

Each student will have to learn two dialogues (out of four) by heart. They will be given a hard copy of their two dialogues on Thursday in class but if you wish to start today, the links are here also. Please learn the two dialogues by heart (you will be assigned two dialogues on Thursday) and be prepared to ‘perform’ the dialogues using excellent intonation, pronunciation, gestures and actions in order to captivate your audience! We will also practise in class on Monday next week.

Also, as has been posted previously on the blog, reading books for this term need to be ordered today as part of the ‘Bear Programme’ for encouraging independent reading.  The titles are on the previous blog posts.

Many thanks,

Mr Carey

Mr Carey’s CP group – for 20th January

Dear Students/Parents,

We continue to progress in our phonics 2 workbook and practise reading and writing sentences each week, both on the board and in our copybooks. This week the CP group will practice the following spellings and learn the words by heart. We have practiced this in class so it should not prove difficult. We have a rule to follow:

COVER/WRITE/CHECK

This is important as, if the students simply copy the words, they will not learn how to spell them by heart. They have to get into this habit now as they will be learning spellings throughout their school years. Remember: Cover/Write/Check. The children will have examples to help them in their class copybook, which they will take home this week.

Homework:

1) The following words need to be practiced three times in their cahier de devoirs:

cat/ sat/ mat/ rat/ hat/

They will be tested on these words on Monday.

2) The following dialogue needs to be learnt by heart for next weeks dialogue competition (see other Blog Post on ‘Dialogue Competition’ for more details). Please practise together at home!!

Mr Carey

Dialogue Competition – Friday, 24 January 2020

interview clipart interview student

Dear Students,

On Friday, 24th of January we are having a DIALOGUE COMPETITION. This competition will be organized in a similar way as our annual Poetry Competition. You should know your dialogue by heart. You will be scored on how well you have memorized (accuracy), interpreted (understanding) and recited (elocution, articulation, physical movements) the dialogue, as well as overall performance.  You will also be scored on team work. Remember you are working together with other speakers! The winners for each group will be performing their dialogue for the other classes!

You might ask:  How can I best practice my dialogue? The best way is to practice outloud with the participation of your family/friends. It is also useful to watch yourself in front of a mirror.

1) Listen to yourself – speak slowly and loudly, in a relaxed tone of voice and pronounce each word clearly, project your voice so that everyone in the room can hear you.

2) Watch yourself – use good posture, use appropriate body language and gestures, let the listeners « see » and « feel » the dialogue.

3) Be confident and have fun – enjoy your performence. Say to yourself, « WOW – how exciting! I get to recite this interesting dialogue for everyone. I’m going to do my best! » Then walk to the front of the room and enjoy!

4) Team Work – remember you are working together as a team. Listen to each other. The dialogue should flow smoothly and accurately like a proper interview or conversation.

Happy practicing! We look forward to listening to your recitations next Friday!

Dear Parents,

We continue to work hard in our lessons. Every day we apply the phonetic sounds of the alphabet and read new words. We are also learning new sight words. Please continue to practice the words and sentences from the phonics book and homework with your children. This supports their learning at school and makes them more confident.

Mr Carey’s GS review – for December 2019

6589849f8b2d7c4ab2da46454f70b649

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! The theme of December was:

Winter Wonderland

Key Vocabulary: Happy Christmas/ Merry Christmas/ I would like…/Christmas tree/ star/ angel/ present/ garland/ fairy lights/ bauble/ it’s winter/ it’s snowing/ snowman/ snow/ snowflake/ Santa Claus/ chimney/ roof/ sleigh/ reindeer/ bells/ Christmas stocking/ stuck/ sack/ toys/ robin/ wing/ barn/ cold/ freezing/ ice/ north wind/

Key activities:

‘What’s missing?’ game: We lined up Christmas objects on the table such as a garland, a bauble, a snowman, fairy lights etc and worked in two teams, figuring out what objects had been removed by the other team. They love this game and practise game related vocabulary such as: captain/ teams/ We’re equal/ points/ score/ what’s missing?/ are you ready yet?/ work as a team etc.

Drawing activities: We drew a Christmas tree on the whiteboard together and added the important elements such as the star, the bauble, the presents etc. We drew Santa Claus on the whiteboard, getting stuck as he comes down the chimney. We used our vocabulary to discuss what we saw and the clothes he wears.

Question Time/ Photos: We discussed photographs of the ‘Robin’ bird and passed around a robin toy in class describing it using vocabulary such as: soft/hard/beak/wings. Then we hung the toy robin to the ceiling together!

Poetry and songs: We learnt the poem ‘The North Wind Doth Blow’ by heart. We learnt actions for the key words such as: ‘North Wind’, ‘snow’, ‘barn’, ‘wings’ etc. Then we learnt the poem as a song (the video link is included below).Ask your child to sing along to this video and I am sure they will be glad to show you what they have learnt!

Key Songs:

We sang songs everyday including:

-We Wish You A Merry Christmas…

-Jingle Bells

-Snowflake, Snowflake

-On the hill there’s a palace…

-Santa Claus got stuck coming down the chimney!

-The North Wind Doth Blow

Thank you,

Mr Carey

We drew Santa Claus on the whiteboard, getting stuck as he comes down the chimney. We used our vocabulary to discuss what we saw.

Question Time: Using our microphone we asked and answered questions such as ‘Does the star go ON TOP of the tree or UNDER the tree?’/ ‘Does the present go ON TOP of the tree or UNDER the tree?’ in order to practise vocabulary and prepositions. We also discussed our favorite toys and revised our ‘Toys Song’.

Worksheets: We completed ‘Winter’ related worksheets in class.

Photography: We looked at close-up photographs of amazing real snowflakes together and chose our favorite one.

Key Songs:

We sang songs everyday including:

-We Wish You A Merry Christmas…

-Snowflake, Snowflake

-Twinkle, Twinkle

-Santa Claus got stuck coming down the chimney!

Here is a video for one of the song we learnt together. They learnt actions for the words such as ‘little snowflake’, ‘falling’, ‘my head’, ‘my nose’, ‘my hand’. Ask them to sing the song for you along with the video!

 

Thank you,

Dear Students,

It’s great to see all of you again. I enjoyed hearing about your Christmas holiday adventures.

Our homework assignment this week takes us to beautiful Tahiti. It sounds like a magical island to explore. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all board an airplane and take off? I wonder how far away Tahiti is and long it would take us to get there? I’m very curious. Let’s find out!

Dear Students,

It’s wonderful to see all of you. It sounds like everyone had a great Christmas vacation.

Our homework this week has many words with a long « i » sound.  Please remember to work carefully. It’s important that after you write the word the first time COVER it and then write it without looking! This way you learn the words and not simply copy.

CE2 Homework 12 – for 13 January 2020

We are reading about « The big Sky » in our books. It’s exciting to read about astronomers, sailors, astronauts and scientists!

Happy studying,

Happy New Year!

I can’t wait for us to learn lots of new things this term! Please bring your phonics book and English copybook back to school if you have not already done so! (Your parents should have checked your work and signed the last pages to show that they have done so.)

1) For homework please learn this poem BY HEART! I will test your performance next week in class.

I’m a little snowman

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "snowman"

I’m a little snowman,

Short and fat.

Here is my scarf

And here is my hat.

When it’s cold and snowy

I will stay.

But when it gets hot,

I melt away!

 

Thank you,

Happy New Year!

I hope that everybody is ready to work hard this term! We made a lot of progress in 2019 so let’s continue to build on this.

Parents, please continue to support your children in their homework and English learning. All parents should have checked their children’s copybooks and textbooks over the holidays, as requested in the previous homework blog post. Some parents are not ensuring that their child completes their corrections. Your child will fall behind quickly if this is not done, especially in their spellings.

1) Please learn the following words by heart. Remember, COVER, WRITE, CHECK as we have practised many times in class. Do this three times (at least) in your cahier de devoirs. There will be a test on Monday so be prepared and get full marks.

two old shoes/ the shoemaker/ three gold coins/ the shop/ the cute elf/ blue leather shoes

2) Please check this December post and order your children’s reading texts today if you have not done so already.

Books for January to June

Image result for clipart free bear reading

Dear Students,

We hope you continue to enjoy the BEAR programme reading books! We’ve chosen excellent titles for the coming months and we look forward to reading/discussing the books with you.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your continued support of the BEAR programme. We have seen many positive developments in our classes. The book choices for the coming months are posted in the attachments below according to class. (The attachments are in WORD format and can be downloaded.) Each book is posted with an Amazon link. Amazon generally offers a variety of providers (new, used, kindle) to choose from. However, the books are also available at local bookshops such as WHSmith or Shakespeare and Company. It may prove more convenient to order several or all of your child’s titles at one time. This would avoid possible postal delays and ensure your child has the book on time.

CM BEAR Programme Books 2019-2020

CE2 BEAR Programme Books 2019-2020

CE1 BEAR Programme Books 2019-2020

Once again, the aim of the programme is to encourage the children to find pleasure in reading and acquire this habit for the rest of their lives. Many studies have been conducted on the impact of reading on academic results; needless to say, reading is an intrinsic part of school learning. However, we must not underestimate the impact of reading a fantastic fairy tale, a puzzling mystery, or an amazing adventure that captivates the reader and transports them to an imaginary world.

Reading gives your children wings. Let’s continue to work together to encourage them to fly.

Kind regards,

THE ENGLISH TEAM

Mrs T’s GS – December 2019 Review

 

DECEMBER

WINTER WONDERLAND

download.jpg

Dear Parents,

December has been a short but very exciting and productive month. The children learned not only new vocabulary but also many songs.

The Christmas tree is a wonderful object to practice prepositions of place. For example:  Where is the star? The star is on the tree. Where is the snowman? The snowman is beside the tree. Where is the present? The present is under the tree. Where are the presents? The presents are under the tree.

We also enjoyed the Hollywood Folly sing-a-long this month. It was a delight to gather around the piano and sing Mary had a Little Lamb, Baa Baa Black Sheep and many beloved Christmas carols.

Attached is a short summary of what we have learned this month. The children have participated well and learned many new things.  It’s been an especially fun and exciting month!

GS December 2019

I wish you ALL a wonderful holiday season and the best of wishes for the new year.

Dear Parents,

The children have taken home their first phonics workbook. We have finished this book. It would benefit your child if you take the time to review the letter sounds and corresponding vocabulary words. We have started our second phonics book. It is an exciting time for us. We are learning many new words and have even started reading sentences. The children are working hard and it is a great pleasure to hear them sounding out new English words! I’ve prepared a list of words and sentences for you to read with your child.

  2. Learn the following poem by heart:670eb21610326e596f3356c819255f44.jpg

Nonetheless, a school would not be a school without children. A very big thank you to all for your continued efforts to get your children to school on time despite the ongoing strikes. It’s the children that motivate and encourage us.

It’s Christmas time so to get into the spirit of things, this week please learn the following Christmas song by heart. The words are below as well as a video link so you can sing-along! Pay attention to the adjectives under-lined also!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
« Rudolph, with your nose so bright
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight? »
Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
« Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history »
Here is a video link of the song:

This week we are going to memorize a poem about Christmas. It is a beautiful poem and I look forward to hearing your recitations.

We are also going to write about a snowman. Please remember to watch your punctuation (capital letters and full stops) and your spelling.

CE2 Homework 10 – December 16, 2019

Keep up the excellent work!

Mrs T

Mr Carey’s CM group – for 16th December

Dear Students,

It’s Christmas time!

The following Christmas poem was published anonymously in 1823 and was later thought to be written by a man called Clement Clarke Moore. He wrote the poem on a  snowy day and apparently his character of St Nicolas was partly inspired by a local Dutch handyman.

This is a classic poem, perhaps the most famous poem to have come out of America, and it is read traditionally in homes throughout America and the world on Christmas Eve.

  1. Please read it several times and I will test you on your recitation next week.
  2. Please write a short paragraph (7 sentences) telling me what you think of the poem. Be honest and imaginative. Talk about your favorite lines or images, and use the adjectives and sentence starters from your class copybook to help you in writing a fantastic paragraph! Remember to write clear, precise sentences.

To help you I have attached various ‘readings’ from you-tube at the end.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

« Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all! »

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,

And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

Enjoy!

Dear Students,                             Fairy tale about a rabbit and a snowball Stock Vector - 13181122

This week we’re going to memorize a poem about a snowman and a hungry bunny rabbit. I look forward to listening to your recitations.

We are also going to read a poem about a little pine tree. The little pine tree hopes it will grow up and become a beautiful Christmas tree.

Dear Students,                                 Christmas at school clipart

Thank you to those of you who do with your homework carefully. It is a pleasure to mark work where I can see an effort has been made. Keep up the good work.

This week we’re going to be learning one of my favourite winter songs. When you listen to the lyrics, close your eyes and imagine the snowman and the children playing together. We will also be writing our own poems. Remember, when writing poetry you have the freedom to write either with rhyming words or free verse. You can even make up words. Let your imagination fly!

Tiffany’s PS class- for December

Hello everyone!

This month has been very short but we’ve been busy as ever learning about our likes and dislikes regarding food.

Some useful vocabulary this month:

turkey, broccoli, ice cream, popcorn, soup, donuts, juice, yams, pizza, banana

Key phrases: Do you like_________? I like _________! I don’t like____________! That’s yummy. That’s yucky. That’s a yellow banana. That’s a big plate of pasta.

Book:

Here is the link for the songs we’ve been working on related to our food theme:

Dear Parents

This month we focused on the theme of:

TRANSPORTATION

Key Vocabulary

car/bus/bicycle/boat/ship/scooter/motorbike/skateboard/plane/horse/train/metro/taxi/submarine/rocket/helicopter/roller skates/unicorn/sheep/running/walking/hopping/flying

Key Dialogue:

How do you come to school in the morning?

What is your favorite way of traveling?

Which is a faster way to travel, a horse or a ship? a bus or a scooter? etc

Which is a slower way to travel, a rocket or a bus?

Games and activities:

We invented actions to represent each mode of transport and took turns using our ‘magic finger’ to ask our neighbor to act out ‘cycling a bike’ or ‘rowing a boat’.

We completed worksheets related to modes of transportation.

We spent time talking about imaginary modes of transport and the children drew and colored their transportation ‘hybrids’ such as a submarine rocket, a ship on a skateboard etc.

Key Songs:

1) We Wish You a Merry Christmas

2) Santa Claus, He Got Stuck!

3) Baa, baa, black sheep

4) Row, row your boat

5) Mary had a little lamb!

Your child will enjoy these videos:

Dear Parents,

This month we focused on the theme of:

TRANSPORTATION

Key Vocabulary:

car/bus/bicycle/boat/ship/scooter/motorbike/skateboard/plane/horse/train/metro/taxi

Key dialogue (We had some interesting answers) :

How do you come to school in the morning?

I drive/I walk/I take a scooter/I fly/I ride a sheep/I ride a horse/I take a rocket/I run/I hop to school…

What is your favorite way to travel?

Games and activities:

We played an action game whereby we practised an ‘action’ to represent each mode of transport, then each child had to individually act out key vocabulary or sentence; for example: « I take a train », and a pupil showed the action to indicate their comprehension.

We worked on several worksheets related to transportation.

The Senses:

We also looked at the five senses (Hearing/Touch/Sight/Taste/Smell) to coincide with their French class work this period

Key Songs:

1) « We Wish You a Merry Christmas » (First verses)

2) The Wheels on the Bus

3) Mary had a little lamb (First verses)

4) A Sailor went to Sea

5) Row, row, row your boat…

I am sure your child will love this video and sing along!

 

Thanks for your continued support and see you soon,

Mr Carey

Dear Parents,

We have had another wonderful month based around the theme:

TRANSPORTATION!

Attached is a short summary of the different things we have learned this November! The children have participated well and learned many new things!

GS November 2019

We also enjoyed two special afternoons learning about birds. We looked at several bird nests and different kinds of feathers. We each coloured a feather and made a beautiful peacock. If you look in the front entrance to the left, you will see it!
