Other Cultures and Celebrations!

posted in Uncategorized |

Last term we read some lovely stories which took us all over the world! We read ‘Granny Went To Market’ and made our very own magic carpet to fly us to some of the lovely countries which Granny visited. We flew to China and learnt all about Chinese New Year (see our older blog page called class 1). We Flew to Russia to buy some Russian Dolls. We used these to do some fantastic size ordering tasks in maths! We flew to India and learnt all about the celebration Diwali. We learnt some fantastic Indian dance moves, made our very own Rangoli patterns and had a go at painting some beautiful Mehdi patterns on hand prints. We used our capacity knowledge to make some salt dough, which we later used to make Diva Lamps with!

We read ‘Mama Panya’s Pancakes’ and ‘Handa’s Surprise’. We used our globe to have a look at where the different countries are positioned and then┬áhad a go at making the flags from the different countries. We also made our own passports. Did you know that you need a passport to board a magical carpet?
