This week as part of one world week, we have all been learning about different countries. Lots of different places have been looked at including Greece, China, Brazil, Germany, Ecuador, Mexico and South Africa.
Lots of different activities have been taking place around the school. Year 6 spent Tuesday afternoon baking lemon shortbread from South Africa whilst Year 5 iced cakes as they do for the Day of the Dead in Mexico. Year 4 carried out an investigation into the work of Charles Darwin and the discoveries he made on the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador.
In assembly on Tuesday, we talked about the UNICEF Convention on the Rights of a Child, which is trying to make sure that all children have the things they need to live a happy and safe life. Unfortunately, not all children in the countries we are studying are as fortunate as us.
On Thursday afternoon, the whole school showed the work that they had been doing in a fantastic assembly. We had dancing from Reception, Year 2 and Year 5, singing from Year 3 and 6 and story telling from Years 1 and 4. It was great to see everyone had had so much fun!
