****The Big Spring Clean****

Our school participated in ‘The Big Spring Clean’. We wore earth colours to school to remind us how important the environment is. The children in our school worked together as a team to help make our school grounds cleaner and healthier. We picked up litter, weeded and planted lots of bulbs. It was a great day!

****Amazing Africa****

Our topic is Africa. We have had so much fun learning about this very interesting continent! We hope you have as much fun looking at our photographs as we have had learning about Africa!

We designed story maps based on a Traditional African Tale called ‘Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’. We worked in groups and listened to each other’s ideas. We know how important it is to take turns during group work.

We also made Christmas tree decorations using old light bulbs! 

First of all we had to cover our light bulbs in layers of newspaper and glue. Then when the paper mache had set, we painted the decorations and covered them with colourful glitter. They were beautiful!
