In Black History Week we learned about the nurse Mary Seacole. She was born in Jamaica and worked in Crimea alongside Florence Nightingale. She had lots of difficulties becoming a nurse because she was black. We used a variety of media to make Jamaican flags.
We used lots of manipulatives to make 2-digit numbers when learning about place value.
We have been reading the books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. For our writing journeys we created puppets of creatures from the Gruffalo and acted out the story.
In Gymnastics we have worked on making different shapes with our bodies, and travelling in different ways around the room. We thought about how our bodies changed when we exercise and the importance of warming our bodies up before we exercise.
