Our first topic for this half term is 'Healthy Living'. We will be learning about what humans and animals need to stay healthy and understanding that we should try and eat healthily. We will learn to sort foods into different food groups and we will be designing and making a healthy sandwich. For art we used oil pastels to create observational drawings of fruit.
In Literacy we have been reading 'The Disgusting Sandwich'. We had a go at making our own jam sandwiches by giving our partner instructions to follow. We ate one half of the sandwich and took the other half outside to turn it into a DISGUSTING sandwich!
We had lots of fun describing our yucky, soggy and sandy sandwiches.
An African drumming group from Ghana came to visit us on Tuesday 19th September. The Kakatsitsi are a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana. The children really enjoyed listening to them play the different drums and learning their traditional rhythms, chants and dances.
Maths Fun Afternoon
On Thursday 12th October, we really enjoyed an afternoon of fun maths learning with our families. This gave us the opportunity to practise our skills of addition, division, money and shape and we shared different ways to practise maths at home.
Thank you to those of you that joined us, we hope you found it useful and enjoyable! For those of you that couldn't make it this time, here are some photos to show what we got up to.
Look out for news of the Spring fun afternoon!
