This week, we introduced the first Unit of Inquiry in K1 - Who We Are. When I asked the children what they thought we might find out about during this unit, they came up with the following list -
- who is stronger
- who is bigger
- who has bigger feet and hands
- our names
- our eyes
- looking at what is different and what is the same.
We began by exploring the Key Concept of Form by identifying what we looked like. The children used their observation skills by looking in the mirror and seeing the different shapes and colours of their faces. Throughout the week, the children have had many opportunities to apply their knowledge of what they look like. Ms Hima joined us to create charcoal self-portraits, and the children used play dough and various resources to make their faces. Take a look at the children in action.
