The Kingdom of Benin - Animal tiles
This term, we have been learning lots about the Kingdom of Benin and its trade, arts, leaders and how they lived. They children discovered how the people of Benin were animists and that they believed animals held special powers. Subsequently, they designed and made their own tiles that incorporated a Benin design.
Year 5 began their Shakespeare Club this week, creating freeze frames of the two households in Much Ado About Nothing. We also spent some time learning about the relationships between the characters in each of the households. Can you spot the dastardly Don Pedro in these pictures? Or the sweet and innocent Hero?
Shakespeare Club were lucky to welcome Richard Navarro to the school to create a piece of music for their upcoming performance in Much Ado Nothing at the Marlowe Theatre. We also had time to learn a song from the play, which Wombat class were keen to show their classmates the next day.
