Trinidad and Tobago
On Thursday 16th July Mrs Ajene came in to talk to us about Trinidad and Tobago. Benjamin told us what it was like and what he had seen and experienced on his visits to the island. Mrs Ajene helped us make head dresses in the colours of the Trinidad flag which the people of Trinidad would wear for a carnival. We also tasted traditional Trinidad food and drinks, such as plantain chips, coconut biscuits, guava jelly, peanut punch and coconut water. We listened to Caribbean music and took turns to play the steel drums. We had lots of fun and learnt lots of interesting facts about Trinidad and Tobago. Thank you Mrs Ajene and Benjamin!
The chicks arrive at last!
WOW! After a long three weeks wait the eggs in the incubator finally began to crack. Our first chick, Joey, was born at lunchtime on Tuesday. Two more chicks followed later that night and our final addition was born on Wednesday morning. We have got two girls and two boys. We have enjoyed holding the chicks and learning all about them but some of us weren't so happy when they used us as a toilet!! We have the chicks in class until Wednesday and then they will be returning to Acorn Farm to join their friends. We have had great fun!
A huge well done to Erica, Millie, Scarlet, Faith, Olivia C, Evan, Ivan, Maisy, Olivia M and Stephen for achieving their bronze 1 certificate in assembly on Wednesday 1st April!
Also a massive well done to Zach who achieved a silver 1 certificate! You are all working so hard! Well done and keep it up!
A big thank you to all the parents who were able to attend todays family learning play session. We hope you enjoyed it as much as the children. Hope to see you again next time.
