Year 2 have been learning about 2D shapes in mathematics. They’e learnt about the properties of the following regular shapes – square, circle, triangle, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon and octagon.
The children were set the challenge to create their own kite picture, but they were only allowed to use 2D shapes. The finished pictures are fantastic. Well done children!
Here are their finished pictures!
Year Six have been making Chinese kites to celebrate the year of the pig but to also contribute toward our Erasmus project on kites.
The children added some Chinese characters, fireworks and kite tails.
Spring is on its way, so new post for a new topic: KITES.
With a software called “SYMMETRIES” (“simmetrie” in Italian, very easy!) the children created wonderful, colourful kites ready to fly high.
The symmetry (form the Greek language) is the quality of being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis.
With this educational software it is possible to use the axis of vertical or horizontal symmetry, to change color, color frequency and width of lines.
Students really like this software and every time
they ask to use it because the image that appears
is a kind of magic….
And nothing can capture the imagination of children like kites. And even of the adults!
In December, a small article appeared in the newspaper of the region. It relates the day the balloon came to the village.
The City Hall of our village, St Geniès de Comolas, wished a good and happy new year , with a beautiful picture of the hot air ballon. In the newspaper, an article was written by Céline Genet about the Erasmus projects.
In Literature, children have created calligrams . Write poem is not easy for young people ( even for the adults) but the result of their hard working is nice.
In Art too, children have let their imagination speak. Like Kadinsky, they tried to create a” Blue Sky” with papers, scissors, glue… they began to cut and draw , They enjoyed this moment.
See you soon for the final result…
