International day: Rowan class learnt about Turkey

Firstly we had a story read by a parent in Turkish and their child in English.  Then the student taught us a game.  Next we made flags or did some colouring relating to Turkey.  After that, we were lucky to be taught some Turkish belly dancing (which some of us enjoyed and others of us not so much).  Finally,  we made Hamsa hands, which included the evil eye for protection.

Walks, fun and porridge

Acorns started ‘Walk to School’ week off with a lovely stroll to the local park where some of us were experiencing the joys of a local park for the very first time.

Later on in the week, we were looking at sequencing familiar activities and following instructions in order. As we were reading ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, naturally we made porridge and got to eat the fruits of our labour! What was quite amusing is that the children were using the story language without even realising…… “Miss Mockford, this porridge is too hot!”
