A World Far Away…

This term we have based our learning around the story of Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne.

We have been rewriting the story in our own words, focusing on  direct speech, expanded noun phrases and using conjunctions.

We have innovated the story by changing the main characters, the setting and the food which was put in the basket and then replaced.

In science we have been thinking about ‘Keeping Healthy’. We have been learning about the importance of eating a balanced diet and exercising. We made fruit kebabs or fruit smoothies. We also talked about and designed a plate of food for a special occasion, such as birthdays. Some of our food choices were not particularly healthy, however we talked about being allowed treats, such as cakes and crisps. We also carried out a survey to find out Class 2’s favourite fruit. Strawberries are our favourite fruit! Yummy!

We have also been learning about money through buying and selling things from our ‘African Market’.
