We learned a traditional song from Australia called Kookaburra. It is about a bird that makes a strange laughing sound.
AUSTRALIA Day 20.6.17
We looked at different examples of aboriginal art and then we tried our best to create our own aboriginal style paintings.
EUROPE Day 19.6.17
Tour de France
We learned all about the Tour de France and we brought our own bikes and scooters from home and took part in our own bicycle race.
We experienced a French Cafe. We listened to French music and tasted croissants, brioche, and French bread. We drank chocolate milk and we practised saying hello, goodbye, thank you and yes and no in French.
We have looked at the different countries that make up Europe and found where they are on a map. We used Google Earth to look at what it's like in each country and talked about what that country was famous for. We discovered some of our favourite foods were created in Italy and some of our favourite football players play for Spain. We also discussed The Eurovision Song Contest and looked at the different countries that take part. We listened to some of of the best and worst Eurovision songs and marked them out of 10. Here is a video of us enjoying some of the music.
We have been doing some Yoga.

We had lots of fun today learning some new skills.
We had lots of fun learning how to balance a feather! 😀😀😀
We have practised spinning plates.
We have made gingerbread men in our classroom today. We put them in the oven to bake. We made them with flour, butter, brown sugar and ginger. Everybody helped to mix the ingredients together and then to roll out the dough. Everyone had a turn to cut out a gingerbread man. We can't wait to eat them tomorrow!
Oh no! Someone has broken them! We will have to find out who did it. ☹️
It was just a joke! Our gingerbread men are fine and we have decorated them. It is time to eat them now. 😀😀😀😀
We have been working hard all week. Today we have enjoyed playing a number game with a partner.
