Food/farming, boats/water, and masks/faces

In the interim between the first day and our follow-up visit, all three classes developed clear ideas about what they were interested in, so that three strong themes emerged which formed the template for the second day.This began with a general assembly, which refreshed our memories about Papua New Guinean culture, and identified food/farming, boats/water, and masks/faces as the three areas we would be studying closely for our second day. Beginning with collaging from magazines, the children then examined more objects from the Sainsbury Centre's collection of objects from Papua new Guinea - this time organised in each classroom according to the three identified themes.
