More about Africa… and 3D shape!

In English, we read a story about a baby Lemur who had been taken from his home in Madagascar.
The children produced some lovely writing from the point of view of the lemur in the story, comparing his feelings from the beginning of the story to the end.
In topic this week, we discussed what it was like in Kenya. We sorted photographs of Kenya into urban and rural, discussing the human and physical features. We were quite surprised that there were cities in Kenya!
In art, we finished our Tinga Tinga paintings. The children were so proud of their finished artwork!
In maths this week, we continued our learning about 3D shapes. The children used their knowledge of shape properties to describe and sort shapes.
Today we took part in a skipping workshop with Leanne from Skipping School. We learned lots of skills that we will be practising for the rest of the year. If your child has a skipping rope at home that they would like to use at playtimes, please feel free to bring them in . (Clearly named.)
Yorkshire Wildlife Park Next Week!
Next week, we are really looking forward to our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Please remember that children need to wear their uniform, warm coats and suitable footwear for walking around outside. The children also need a packed lunch in a rucksack as they will need to carry this around with them. Children must arrive at school for 8:15am so that we can get an early start!
