African Open Afternoon
We welcomed 2JR's parents into the classroom and had a fantastic time making African musical instruments.
The children used their designs from our D.T. sessions to help them construct their instruments.
I'm not sure who had more fun.... the children or the parents!
To launch our new topic, the children have had an
African Adventure Afternoon.
They have sampled lots of foods from Africa:
They absolutely loved the mango ice cream we made, they enjoyed the banana loaf cake and pineapple. But they weren't too sure on the avocado!!!
We also smelt the spices from Morocco, Ethiopia and West Africa.
The children were very creative and made African masks, rain makers and recreated African patterns and prints.
Maths Open Morning
Thank you to all parents/carers who joined us for our super POWER MATHS open morning.
The children loved showing off their incredible maths skills to you and the feedback from the workshop was all incredibly positive.
The Three Little Pigs
In English the children are imitating the story of The Three Little Pigs. This is part of our 'Conquering the Monster' unit of work.
The children have been acting different parts of the story out.
Can you guess whether this clip is part of the opening, build up, problem, resolution or ending?
As part of our African Adventure topic, the children are exploring, designing and making African instruments in D.T.
Today the children explored musical instruments from around the world.
Up, Up and Away.......
In Geography this week, the children have been looking at the four nations that make up the U.K.
The children have focused on England this week and have researched this country using the Chrome books.
They found out lots of interesting facts including....
- Fish, chips and mushy peas, Angel Delight, and cupcakes are popular foods to eat in England!
- Westminster Abbey, the Peak District, Stonehenge and Big Ben are good tourist attractions!
- Other major cities in England that you may like to visit are Manchester, London, Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield.
We're Going on a Material Hunt......
The children enjoyed going on a material hunt in the outdoor area. They investigated the different materials and their uses.
