Pirates of The Caribbean

I was picking Ilham up from his Large Art session yesterday when I realised that the school had placed new works made by the children at the common area. The bright colourful works definitely attracted my attention. There were various shapes of farms and farm equipments and animals from which year group I'm still uncertain. And there were also displays of pirate ships from Year 2 classes. The pirate ships were designed and created in the class with I believe, the help of some mothers. I'm not sure under which subject they learn this, but I know that they take quite a long time to finish, perhaps a full term. Recently the chidren dressed up as pirates as part of their school activities.

Let us see the various shapes and colours of these pirate ships of Leidschenveen !!!

Year 2 is equivalent to Tahun 1

Even though I really like and enjoy seeing the designs of the colourful pirate ships and wouldn't mind going off on one of them sailing the seven seas with the likes of Will Turner or even Jack Sparrow for that matter, but I couldn't help wondering on the practicality and rationality of the chosen activity. I for one would rather they design and create the latest rocket which would perhaps transport future astronauts to Mars or even Pluto.

But then, learning need not be so practical right???

Hey I like those pirate ships! Interesting children's art work. They would have to be imaginative and creative to come up with their own designs. Itu seni namanya. A good lesson.

Hi TK,

Each one is special in their own unique ways right?

Good job!
The color was bright, each creation was unique! I love their work! It doesn't have to be practical as long as it is something the kids are excited about. It is good to explore their imagination!
