Rio de Vida!
We have had a fantastic start to our new topic - launched in style with our very own class carnivals!
We have been studying the Amazon Rainforest and all the different creatures that live there which the children have found fascinating. The Amazon Rainforest has not just been part of our topic lessons, it has also been appearing right across our curriculum.
In art the children made rainforest dioramas - it was wonderful seeing their imaginations being brought to life as well as their great attention to detail. We are using these dioramas as our settings for our creative writing in English.
In D & T this week the children learnt about the Yanomami tribe and then designed, made and evaluated their very own tribal necklaces.
Please be aware that as of next week the girls toilets in the junior building will be out of action as they undergo a major refurbishment. This will have minimal impact on our children but they have been made aware of the alternative arrangements just in case.
