We are so impressed with the range and quality of enrichment homework that has come into school based on our whole school topic; ‘Americas’. From presentations and research projects to models and art work the level of engagement and detail is amazing!
We have learned so much about native Americans; from how their feathers were used as symbols, to how they believed dream catchers could catch the bad dreams and send good ones through the feathers to the children sleeping below.
Most of all we have learned how resourceful they were and how much they respected the earth and nature. We have learned that their messages about the earth and the environment are very pertinent today. Look out for our WASUP ‘Walsall Against Single Use Plastic’ sculpture exhibition entry, coming to the celebration blog soon!
