Rumble in the Jungle

We spent the morning making jungle masks to role play the story of Rumble in the Jungle. We then turned our whole classroom into a jungle. We can't wait for Mrs Hickey to come back after half term to see what we have been up to!:-)

The Gruffalo

We worked in our English groups to role play the Gruffalo. We took it in turns to play the different characters before showing the rest of the class.

Australia!

This week we have looked at Australia.  We listened to stories and found out about Australian animals. We learnt about the Aboriginal people and the way they produce artwork using earth colours, we then created our own boomerangs with Aboriginal art on. Mrs Daniels bought in some original artwork and other Australian artefacts and we had so many questions! Luckily for us we could get them answered as Mrs Daniels cousins live in Australia so they sent us a video answering all we wanted to know about modern life in Australia....We particularly loved their 'Aussie twang'.

European Day of Languages

Yesterday we made some Spanish senorita gingerbread men and Spanish biscuit flags for the Macmillan coffee morning.  Today we all came dressed up, it was great fun. We looked at information about Spain and leant some words, we even said 'good day' in Spanish to Mr Croke.  We made some Spanish flags before we learnt some colours in Spanish that helped us finish a picture. We even had an afternoon siesta!  :-)

Our senses

We have been looking at our five senses, touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. We then spent time testing our senses in different ways. We tried to recognise the sounds in the sound bag by closing our eyes. We then took it in turns to try different types of food, including lemons!:-) a sight test, where objects were removed and the  children had to identify the missing objects. We also smelt different smells, some of us liked the mint and peppermint!
