A big thank you to all of you who attended the fantastic Phonics Workshop last week. For those of you who were unable to attend or did not receive a handout please find the handouts here. We are hoping to be able to run this session again in the near future so if you were unable to attend please don't feel that you have missed out. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like some further support with Phonics!
We have have a fun start to the term exploring our bodies for our "All about me" topic. We have been finding out how different we are by measuring our feet and hands with different objects. We also had fun measuring Miss Goulding and finding out that 2 of us could fit into the shape of her!
We have had a fun packed week this week exploring other cutlures. We were very fortutate to have two mums from the school come and talk to us about India. We learnt words and how to count to 10, we danced and we also explored Indian accessories and traditions. It was great fun!
As part of International week, we also had an AMAZING performance from some Maasai Warriors who came from Kenya to come and perform for us. They wore amazing clothes and jewellery and sang in thier own langauge called Maa. They invited some of the children from our class to perform with them which was fun. Afterwards they came and answered any questions we had.
Some of the questions were:
'Where do you get water?'
'Do you have storms?'
'How long did it take for you to get here?'
'What do you do in Kenya?'
'Where do you buy your food from?'
We learnt so much about the Maasai Warriors and hope they come and visit us again!
