Pyramid building, kite making, safari animal artwork, stories about dragons, writing in Arabic, visiting Spain, many different national costumes, traditional Asian games, special visitors, a variety of international snacks and delving into the depths of Ancient Egyptian culture. Wow, what a week!!
Sports Day - What a day! Laughter, sweat, team work and smiles. Well done to everyone for having a go, doing their best and cheering on their classmates. In continuing with our current Literacy unit, Puma class started to look at some traditional stories from other countries as part of our preparations for UN week. A massive THANK YOU to all the parents who came in this week to share international snacks with Puma class at break times. There were many children who needed encouragement to try foods that they thought they didn't like. It was amazing to see how many changed their minds after having a try!
The first week back after the holiday and Puma class have thrown themselves into our next Literacy unit of traditional tales. This week we have been exploring settings and generated a whole heap of adjectives to describe the setting of the Giant's house in Jack and the Beanstalk. We've read a whole series of traditional tales already and carried out an investigation to find out what a traditional story is by finding and comparing facts about each story. We have also started to think about story plans to create a 'character journey' for Goldilocks, explaining what she saw, did, said and heard in her famous story. In our Geography skills this week we started to look at plans of the school and of the classroom, learning that plans are made by looking down on an area like a bird (a bird's eye view).
