Reading for Pleasure: Thr Secret Kingdom of Nek Chand

We have read a non fiction book, all about the artist Nek Chand. Nek made a secret kingdom of statues using recycled materials in Chandigarh, India.

We have designed our own statues using recycled materials, which links to our science topic (Material World). This week we learned and discussed why some materials are used for certain jobs.

We have also considered the importance of using recycled materials in art and how this relates to our Environment Pillar in Topic (understanding the world around us).

I find this interesting because of how Nek Chand created these structures with recycled pieces of rubbish – Niharika

I’ve enjoyed this activity because we got to draw our own people out of materials – Morni

Welcome Back

Welcome back 5GD! It has been so wonderful to see you all back in school this week. The teachers will be having their Meet the Teacher meetings on Friday – we hope as many of you as possible can make it, but we will share the information if you are unable to and for those who can attend to refer back to. Your meeting is Friday morning, 9am, in the main school hall. After dropping off your child to the classroom, please come to the entrance by Reception and leadership will be there to direct you!
