Spring 2

We have had a very busy half term learning all about our focus book 'Handa's Surprise'. We started our theme by discovering a basket full of tropical fruit and wild animals - it was tricky to name some of the fruits including passion fruit and guava! We loved making fruit kebabs with some of our own favourite fruits. 

We learned about Handa and what happened to all of the fruit she was taking to her friend Akeyo. We worked hard to retell the story and remember the sequence of events. 

'Handa's Surprise' is set in Africa so we got to learn all about Kenya by using Google maps and we compared Kenya to England. We were very confident to talk about similarities and differences between the two countries including the weather, animals, homes and food. We created some beautiful African sunset silhouette pictures.


We came into school one Monday morning to find a giant beanstalk had grown over night and we found a big pair of black boots at the top!! The children found a story sack with different characters and we decided it must be from Jack and the Beanstalk! We have had great fun retelling the story, acting out our favourite parts with puppets and planting our very own beanstalks. 

We were very lucky to have a visit from a new born duckling too!! We loved holding it and learning about the life cycle of a duck.


We have also celebrated Pancake Day, World Book Day, Mother's Day, St Patricks Day, International Day and Easter.
