Pokemon and the Hidden People!

We have learnt about the Hidden People in Iceland. They are very special to Icelanders, and there are doors on rocks and trees where they live. There have been times where they have needed to move a big rock, but the Icelanders say “no” because that’s where the Hidden People live!

We have made doors for the Hidden People, which we will put in the Forest School area. We painted the doors, and carefully decorated them with acrylic paint. Then we made little foods out of Fimo clay for the Hidden People.

We also planted flowers and seeds to grow in the classroom.

We are scientists….

This week our projects move from the precision phase (where the kids work hard to secure the scientific knowledge, skills and understanding needed to answer the brief) to the generalisation phase (where the children come back together to plan how they will respond to and answer the brief. The generalisation phase is always fascinating as children and staff grapple with the big ideas they have been exploring and collaborate to come up with sustainable solutions.  Keep checking in with the blog to find out how they are doing.
