This week was One World Week and the country we have learnt about is Mexico. The classroom looks wonderful with the Mexican flags that the children made at home. First we learnt about the pilgrimage in Mexico that millions of people visit each year. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the second largest pilgrimage in the world. The children learnt about Our Lady appearing to Juan Diego. The children located Mexico on a map and researched how we would travel to Guadalupe from England. We also looked at some Mexican art mirrors and the children made their own. The children learnt a Mexican hat dance and made and ate Mexican Sweet Bread.
In Maths, the children have been rounding 2 and 3 digit numbers to the nearest ten. The children have been drawing rounding mountains to support them with their learning.
To end our Geography topic about rainforests, the children used pastels to drew pictures of rainforests.
It was lovely to see so many of you at the Harvest assembly and Celebration morning. Thank you for your donations. Well done to the mums and dads who joined in with our Mexican Hat dance.
