Class Update – 3.11.17

In Holly class over the last half term, we have been learning about Fairtrade.  We have followed the life cycle of a banana, and learnt how Fairtrade ensures Farmers are given a fair price for their produce. During language week, we focussed on Rio de Janiero. Using their carnivals as inspiration, we designed and made headdresses and made a tourist leaflet encouraging people to visit the city. Our class assembly was inspired by our transition theme, and we talked about how each of us are individual.

An example of one of our poems:

M is for marvellous

A is for amazing

D is for dazzling

I is for incredible

S is for shooting star

O is for overwhelming personality

N is for never disobedient

Half of the class went to Little Canada on a residential visit, and those that remained in school had an action packed week that included a trip to Flip Out and the Peter Ashley Activity Centre. They also created plenty of craft projects making items such as natural photo frames, dreamcatchers and talking sticks. They also had a very special forest school, where they were able to toast marshmallows over the campfire.

Lets hope the next half term is just as enjoyable!
