In English we went on a counting journey through Tanzania, inspired by the traditional tale “We All Went on a Safari”.  We even had a go at learning to count in Swahili!  The children then set about becoming authors and writing their own counting books, using adjectives and alliteration to describe the animals and to bring their writing to life.  We enjoyed sharing these stories with our friends in class, and are very excited to take our books to Kindergarten next week, to read them to the children there.

We have started our new topic learning about Brazil, and the children have enjoyed locating countries on the world map to set the scene.  In Science we have been investigating materials; we went on a hunt for different materials around the school and learnt some interesting new words to describe their properties. Ask your child if they can remember what the words flexible, transparent, opaque and absorbent mean.

Have a super weekend!
