3a have been busy learning about the brain this week. They have been to a knowledge assembly with people from the brain injury rehabilitation centre where they learnt lots about ‘what the brain is’. From here they came together as a class and come up with specific brain protection and safety question ready for their specific session with experts on brain safety. The children thoroughly enjoyed this and the level of questioning was extremely high.
To ignite the project and to spark the creative side of the brain the children re created images to show the difference between the left side and the right side of the brain. They used blow painting and sketching using pencils as their techniques. All children came together to take part in a class sewing session where they used a running stitch to create their own part of the right side of the brain.
