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.


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'.
