A Year in Africa

Our school has elected to use The Lion King for our end-of-year production this year. As  you can imagine, my mind went straight away to how I can use this across the school with all of my art classes. Having lived in Africa for 20 years has left its mark on my soul and any chance to revisit it is grabbed with both hands. So, I went about my usual internet searches to see what was around and started to piece together some ideas for my units.

My other constraint was to focus on the element of Shape and Form with all my classes this year. Last year we focused on Colour Theory and the year before on Lines, elements we needed to review and expand on further.

Another first was expanding my current class levels of Y1-Y6, to also include Kindy and Y0, children whose ages range from 3.5 to 4.5 years. Another big learning curve I'll post about later.

2016 is also the year our school is due another IB (International Baccalaureate)  evaluation which is a time to reflect on how well my programmes encompass the principles and elements of PYP (Primary Years Programme).

All in all a year of great new learning ahead for sure.

Thank you for visiting,
