England ~ We built a phone box!

An idea that blossomed into a crazy phonebox/beanstalk/flowers-everywhere kind of structure!

 Playing with the pies was a clever activity for the class. Of course, they couldn't really get their heads around the idea of a 3 dimensional unit to hold the doors, but that wasn't really the point.

This activity encouraged team work, fine motor skills and a lot of conversation combined with imagination.

What started out as a phone box, became a house with different rooms! There was even a room for dancing! Everyone was happy!

  The pub in Notting Hill and the phone box were the favourites of the class!

England...again! This time with attitude!

We started the month with our flag..this time, making it a l'il bit Banksy!!!

The painting was the easy part - the kids are used to that!

For the silhouettes, the teachers took A4 pictures with cool poses, cut out and the class each painted over their shadow!! Nice work everyone!!
