Term 4 always brings a flurry of activity, and this year is no exception. Our current clay project in 6P has seen the class creating Roman aqueducts using wooden moulds which we made in woodwork earlier in the year. The plan is to add to the aqueduct that currently lives in the Class 6 play area – a structure created by the current Year 9 students.
Not only have the class handmade the individual clay aqueducts—mould and all. But they have also used their time throughout the year to immerse themselves in the art of mosaics, creating the decoration for the base of the ancient Roman structure.
As a class, we look forward to the culmination of their clay, woodwork and craft lessons and leaving a further legacy in the playground for future classes to admire.
With our Primary School experience coming to a conclusion, 6P has been reminiscing on their learning journey both as a class and as individuals. With a majority of the class taking the journey from Class 1 and even Kindergarten before that, we have had occasions where songs and verse have spontaneously risen during our class discussions and gatherings.
In Class 1, every 6P family received a reminder of the goal of the Primary School journey. I share this as a reminder to all of the expectations and wonders of the journey, and the blessings that we, as teachers, strive for each and every school day:
Receive the child with reverence
Educate them with love
Let them go in freedom
