15 Another happy day at Brain Trust PS
Another happy day at Brain Trust PS. Learning about the life Cycle of the butterfly then doing butterfly prints. Charles told me it was the first time the chldren had ever had the use of coloured pencils or paint! Note the roof of the school hall which doubles up as a church!!! I had to keep moving from shade to shade. Glad it wasn’t raining! I think a new roof could be a furture project for us. What do you think friends?
Finished the day morning with the parachute, great fun and once I had introduced the teachers to this wonderful teaching aid they soon got the confidence to use their own ideas. For nect year – paints, crayons and ground sheets please! Click on the first photo to see slideshow.
My wonderful friend Innocent is making me ground sheets out of the strong bags the mosquito nets arrived in! Brilliant! Still after a bigger ground sheet though xxx
Probably the first time this little girl has used paints
The children were so careful using the paints.
They took turns so well, appreciating that this was a special acitivity.
These two are always around me. They are the teachers children.
This teacher is 75 years old. He told me he is retired but not tired!
Wax and pencil crayons donated by friends and schools in Poynton. Please keep saving them for me.
Their work was so good.
The first drawing and certainly the first colouring in their exercise books
A smiley face sticker for everyone including this cheeky fella!
The roof desperately needs repair! A project for us I think!
Friends Helen and Joshua donated these teaching charts. The school has NO teaching aids at all!
The parachute a gift from the Hollies Pre-School in Poynton
Green oranges for the teacher! Thank you Madam Gerry for teaching us!
