On December 8, Mireille’s class from kindergarten and Clarisse’s from CP to CE1 went to the new Le Méliès cinema for two cartoon screenings: a first on life in the Far North (fishing, hunting and the discovery of a strange animal: the Narwhal), the second entitled “Operation Santa Claus” on the story of a little boy who asks for a gift from Santa Claus himself and whose father pays a hunter to capture this Santa Claus …
A very popular moment for children, and even if Santa Claus was no longer there to do his rounds, it was his elves who took over!
Another highlight: the discovery of Asson Zoo and its animals as part of the Africa project. It was on a beautiful cool but sunny day that the school, divided into three heterogeneous age groups, visited the zoo all day with a picnic break. The zoo was practically empty of visitors, quiet for a superb visit appreciated by all; the children were even able to see the active white tiger and discover a whole group of screaming and joking monkeys, sometimes very noisy.
paper mache animals
Also in this project on Africa, a meeting was organized on a Thursday evening, in order to show the creations of the school children on the animals of the savannah, the desert and the jungle.
The little ones were very proud to show their family the creations they made every Wednesday morning. Indeed, divided into inter-age sections (from the small section of kindergarten to CM2), each group had an animal to design with the preparation of a documentary sheet.
Thus, from November to December the children made models of animals by inserting them into their landscapes of life. From the elephant to the tiger, the leopard, the crocodile or even smaller animals – such as the tarantula – and still others have been made of papier-mâché or with various and varied recycled materials!
A new exhibition on African culture
The exhibition divided between the animals of the savannah, the jungle and the desert was at the height of our young artists and their sense of creativity; they deserve applause for their prowess in making these animals look as real as possible. And it was a real success for them to see their family appreciate this work.
The evening ended with a Spanish inn where the parents had concocted various victuals for the occasion; a moment of intergenerational sharing.
Also note that an exhibition will be launched next spring on art, culture and music in Africa.
Santa at school
This last Friday before the Christmas holidays, Santa Claus came to visit the children of the school. He thus appeared after the children sang “Petit papa Noël…”, it was a big ovation to this old man dressed all in red!
His basket was full of gifts: he brought two tricycles for the little ones, a nice bike for the middle ones, only the big ones couldn’t have their gift because of a delay in delivery from the overworked elves at this time!
Then the afternoon continued with Christmas carols and ended with a snack with chocolate, orange and cakes.
