The children enjoyed having the animals from Nepicar Farm visiting the school:
To start international week and our learning about America, the children were able to present their homework projects to the class:
Today the children who visited France experienced the French language, music and saw popular sites such as the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa.
They also got to experience Al Fresco dining in our French Café. They tried croissants, pain au chocolat, and brioche. Unfortunately the café had run out of frog’s legs and snails!!!!
Last week Year 1 were visited by Jane from Coolings. She talked to the children about different seeds and plants. She explained what plants needed to grow strong and healthy. The children planted their own pizza toppings- basil seeds and tomato plants.
The Infant children had a wonderful time in Russia. They tasted different Russian sweet bread and made Russian dolls. They also used different shapes to recreate St Basil’s Cathedral.
In Pink class, for International Day, we have been learning all about Brazil. Children had fun in the photo booth making up their own Samba dance, playing with musical instruments and dressing up in fancy costumes replicating the carnival in Rio De Janerio. They went animal spotting in the Amazon Rainforest and explored using magnifying glasses to identify different insects. Did you know there are more than 70 000 different species of insects living in the Amazon Rainforest?!
They had a chance to taste the delicacies of Brazil during food tasting of Misto Quente’ (ham and cheese toastie), Bolinho de Chuva (cinnamon doughnuts) and Mousse de Maracujá (passionfruit mouse). The doughnuts were particularly popular!
Children also had the opportunity to practise their football skills to score as many goals as possible in a minute, build Christ the Redeemer using 3D blocks (linked to our maths topics) and collage the Brazillian flag using different resources.
