Thank you to all the parents who came into school for our Africa Celebration, especially those who helped with workshops and cooked delicious dishes to share. It was lovely to see the pride children took in sharing their cultures with their friends and teachers.
Some of the children blogged their work. Have a look here:
Our Christmas cards are made and ready to post to our friends in Seville in Spain.
Ms Fernandez helped write our messages in Spanish.
And look what arrived today……
A great evening celebrating the many different cultures of our parish and school. Delicious food and great dancing!
Thank you to those who came to make costumes and those who joined in the parade today. The theme was iconic women.. and on Mothers’ Day, what better women to celebrate than mothers everywhere…
Today each class chose a Spanish-speaking country to study. We sang songs, studied geography and language; tasted Spanish food and looked at artists, clothes, music and dance. Thank you to Ms Fernandez for helping us.
We opened our Christmas Cards from Seville!
What an amazing week!
Have a look at the class blogs for more photos and information.
Sang a hymn about Moses which reminded them of Harriet Tubman!
Year 2 learned about Mary Seacole and made non-fiction books about her.
Year 3 learnt about the Apartheid Era in South Africa
Harriet Tubman, the Moses of her people
Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in space.
Some of our parents came in to help us celebrate the European Day of Languages by recording a message in their own languages.
We were all born to be great!
We’ve had a fantastic day celebrating all things Spanish today. The children have really impressed me with their speaking skills. They have danced, sung, eaten and conversed with great confidence. Their baking filled the school with the delicious aroma of bread. Thank you to Miss Coleman and Miss Velazquez for organising the day.
Here’s a challenge for you – which Spanish artist were Year 6 studying?
The Christmas Story from all around the world, told by Years 1 and 2. A beautiful play – well done to everyone who took part or helped.
