Red Class Summer Party

We had so much fun at our party today! In the morning, we made hats, look how fancy we are.

We started our party with a cooling ice lolly and a film.

Then, we played the chocolate game. We had to wiggle our faces to move the chocolate down to our mouths. No hands! We had quite sticky faces.

After that, we played musical statues.

Then, we had some party food, yum!

We finished with a game of Simon Says. Thank you for being such fantastic party people Red Class!

Culture Week in Purple Class

This week we have enjoyed celebrating our amazing and diverse community. It has been such an exciting and busy week for everyone involved. Each class spent the week finding out about a different country, including food, art, music and physical geography.

Purple class enjoyed learning all about the country Somalia!

We looked at different flags from around the world and talked about why flags are important. We talked about the children’s own heritage (family history) and made different flags to represent some of the different countries from around the world.

Food tasting was a fun way to introduce the country Somalia:

We learnt how to weave:

We looked at Somalian fabric and designed our own vibrant patterns:

A huge thank you to Rohan’s mum who visited the Reception classes to share a story with us that was read to her when she was a little girl! You can watch a version of this story below.

On Friday children had the opportunity to dress in national dress, clothes that represent their country or the country they have been learning about in class. We ended Culture Week with a parade around the school.

Culture Week 12th-16th June

This week 2T have enjoyed learning all about Poland. We have learnt how to say some simple polish words and found out a lot of information about the country itself. We really enjoyed trying different Polish foods, we had a class vote and the dumplings were the overall favourite. We have all made a Polish flag and completed a Polish fact file.

Even though it wasn’t about Poland we enjoyed a Chinese ribbon workshop earlier on in the week and we even performed a dance.

Today we enjoyed getting dressed up and representing our countries. At the end of the day we had a parade around the school. What a fun week we have had!
