This week we started our session with a colouring-in activity. The students were colouring different kinds of fish, cut them out and then stuck them on a lollipop sticks. The students used those fish in their performance in the second part of the session. We played the story that we had recorded earlier and the students, using their characters (the crab, dolphin, turtle, shark, starfish, small fish), performed the story.
We also did this term’s evaluation. The students answered three questions, and stuck them onto a huge cardboard turtle. The questions and some answers were:
1) How do you feel at Wandering Books?
I feel very happy because we are learning about sea creatures.
Ahh if you ask me I will say “I love this place, I love colouring, and crafting and many more”.
I like this place because I learn so much about art and craft and enjoy myself.
2) What have you learnt at Wandering Books?
I learnt how to cut better.
I learnt to know more fish and learnt about different places in the sea and more knowledge.
I learnt about this place, I learn some fish and water and had some new friends to play and to make art and craft.
3) What do you want to do next term?
Next term I want to learn about nature and land animals.
I want to dance and sing.
I want to do origamis.
