Being Healthy!

This week we have been looking at foods that are healthy for us. We have explored the fruits that Handa takes to Akeyo and we have even made our own healthy pizzas. We have also designed our own fruit bowls full of delicious fruits!

We have been talking about foods that are unhealthy for us too – we know that sweets, chocolate and chips are unhealthy for us but we have decided that it is okay to have them as a treat but it is not good to eat them every day!

We are trying to be really healthy by eating fruit everyday and drinking lots of water.

I challenge you to try a new healthy food – perhaps a guava, or a mango or maybe even a passion fruit!image


Making music!

Today we have been exploring how to make sounds using the instruments. We have been looking at different tribal dances and trying to copy the dances and mimic the music that they dance too.

We really enjoyed exploring all the different sounds that instruments make. image

Handa’s Surprise!

This half term we are learning the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, we will be learning to tell it off by heart and we will be exploring all the fruit that Handa talks about in her story.

I challenge you to use the story map to retell the story to all your friends and family! image

Rhyme of the week 06/03/17

This week’s rhyme of the week is called The African Elephant, please can you encourage your child to learn this poem.

The African elephant

The elephant has enormous ears,

And a trunk so very long,

His eyes are very tiny,

And his tusks are sharp and strong.
