End of topic showcase - Africa!
On Monday 19th October we celebrated our Africa day where we learnt lots about the Masai Mara tribe - we had a focus on Black History month alongside this. We made our own Kenyan Flag discussing what each part represents, used our retrieval and inference skills when looking at a picture of the Masai tribe, took part in a jumping dance competition - our winner jumped a whopping 21 cm high, made Masai-inspired necklaces, repeating pattern mud huts and a tribal figure using our cutting, folding and following instructions skills. We had so much fun and really enjoyed celebrating such an exciting topic from the half term.
What a great start to the Autumn term!
We started the week with chaos in the classrooms! After looking at all of the clues and watching CCTV, we found out that a lion had visited our school! This has led into our learning - reading the Lion King and describing the Savannah in Africa as well as measuring lion footprints using our knowledge of numbers to 20!
