Our African Workshop

On Monday 18th October, we were joined by Kwame for an exciting day of African adventures. The children were totally captivated by Kwame's incredible ability to play a range of instruments, his excellent dance routines and his uplifting story telling. It was amazing to see the children so immersed in learning to play the drums, replicating African dance moves and singing along happily as they played a range of instruments. We have videos to share of their dancing and drumming and look forward to sharing these with you next term!

The Wallabies have fully embraced being scientists. Watch our video above to explore how we completed our own investigations into waterproof, buoyant materials! Our challenge was to create a boat that was waterproof, buoyant and could carry a Lego passenger. The Wallabies were incredible at describing the properties of materials, testing their properties and then designing their own plan for a boat that met the criteria. It was amazing to see their creativity and resilience when creating their boats by accurately following their plan. The children were so proud of their creations and could not wait to test them on the water! As a very reflective class, the Wallabies could confidently share how to improve their boat if unfortunately it did not float this time!

The Wallabies have truly enjoyed our learning journey in Design and Technology. The Wallabies began their journey by exploring what the word 'healthy' really means. We explored the eat well plate and tried to consider what food we see as healthy and unhealthy by referring to this. After this, the children started to explore pre-existing products which they really enjoyed! Watch our video below to gain a greater insight into our learning journey!

The Wallabies are enjoying learning a range of Tennis skills!

It has been brilliant to enjoy the sunshine whilst learning a range of tennis skills. The children have grown in resilience whilst learning new skills. We are all excited to put our skills into action in a tennis game against one another. Make sure you look out for photos of our progress!

Year 2 had an amazing day learning to play the African drums. Kwame told the children some interesting and informative stories about his country, Ghana, as well as answering lots of questions. The children also had the opportunity to learn some African dance moves which they thoroughly enjoyed.
