Dreamcatchers - 16/03/2020
This afternoon, we made Native American inspired dreamcatchers.
These are placed near the bed and allow good dreams to flow though the gaps in the centre, but the bad dreams are caught, leaving you with only the good dreams.

Minnesota Hot Dish - 04/03/2020
Today, we looked at some of the most iconic American dishes including the Chicken Pot Pie, Louisiana Natchitoches pie and the Nebraskan handheld pie.
We made the Minnesota Hot Dish from beef mince, sweetcorn, peas, onions and hash browns. Every child took a turn in the cooking process and we tried it afterwards. DELICIOUS!
West End in Schools - 03/03/2020
Today, we were visited by Sarah who brought the West End in to our school! Using her experience of the West End, we were taught a dance to tell the story 'Where the Wild Things Are'. Some of us were the wild things, others trees, boats, furniture... we used our dance skills to show the story.
THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN!
Road Trip Postcards - 28/02/2020
This week we have been discussing some of the most famous landmarks in New York City, known often as 'The Big Apple'. When we have picked our favourite location - The Statue of Liberty - we discussed what we would like to do there, see or learn about. Then, we wrote a postcard from that location back to our families/friends back home to describe everything we saw!
