As part of Black History Month, we have been reading the story of 'Handa's Surprise' by Eileen Browne. We tasted some of the seven delicious fruits including bananas, tangerines, pineapple, avocado and mango. We decided which one was our favourite. Using four of our senses we ; used words to describe the taste and texture, thought about the texture and how it feels in our mouth, discussed what the fruit looked like and talked about how the fruit smelt.
We had a great time! Our teachers were very proud when we tried fruits that we haven't had before.
European Day of Languages
Ciao! We have had lots of fun celebrating European Day of Languages with a focus on Italy. We have been learning how to say hello, thank you and well done in Italian. We learned the colours of the Italian flag and made a collage of the flag. Using different shapes, we created repeating patterns using Italian flag colours. On Google Earth, we looked at Italian landmarks and talked about how Pope Francis lives in Italy, in the Vatican City. We also made pasta necklaces. Best of all, we made our own mini cheese pizzas. Mama Mia! What a busy week!
