Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 23 Jun 2021

   Fruity Fun
This half-term the golden thread running through our curriculum is to be physically, mentally and spiritually healthy.  Well, we have definitely been getting our 'five-a-day' as we have been introduced to a range of fruit through our new class text, Handa's Surprise.


 
The children have really enjoyed using their senses to explore each piece of fruit, describing how they look, feel, smell and taste.  We have come across mouth-watering pineapple, luscious mangoes, tangy passion fruit, succulent oranges, creamy avacado and delectable bananas.  A big thank you to the Carrick family who were able to source two beautiful, fragrant guavas for us.  We can't wait for them to ripen so that we can taste those too!

In English with Mrs Clegg, we finally discovered that the mystery recipe that we found was last week was for an African 'Injera', as our class text is 'The Runaway Injera.'
                                                                                  
We discovered that an injera is type of flatbread eaten in many African countries.  We also found out that Ethiopian villagers often use injera to scoop up their meal, in the same way that we would use a fork or spoon.  In this story, the injera rolls away and the story follows a similar pattern to 'The Runaway Pancake' or 'The Gingerbread Man.'  The children were also intrigued by the African writing throughout the book.  We look forward to continuing our work on this in the next few weeks.

Our outdoor area is beginning to resemble a Kenyan village with plenty of music, dance and role-play.  We are sure that the neighbours have enjoyed being seranaded by the beat of the African drums and the mesmerinsing sound of the kalimba (mbira) and they may have even spotted one or two safari animals crossing the plain!

Mrs Taylor led a special assembly on Thursday to talk to the children about the class structure from September.  The children were excited to discover that there will be three classes in a morning and two in an afternoon!  Some children were also excited to share that they knew some Nursery children were going to join us too!  With our new class structure in mind, Mrs Taylor has set us a little challenge...she would like us to think of three new class names.  We thought about our school vision and that we are all trying to "shine like stars in the sky" and decided that we should theme our classes around Space.  The children had some great initial ideas ('Milky Way Class', 'Galaxy Class'....) but maybe you could all have a think at home too?  We would love to hear your suggestions!
 
As well as all this fun, the children have been completing lots of assessments this week as we finalise end of year reports.  Well done, Tigers, you have all worked hard and shone like stars!
