In 5/6W this week it has been exciting with the rehearsals for next week’s class pieces in front of the mum’s and dad’s.
On Wednesday our class were sorting out the Christmas cards. In order to organise these, they are put in to separate piles according to the class written on them. Sorting out the letters was really fun all the class’s got about 100-250 cards.
The 2 minute talks have been really exiting from topics like Turkey to Chocolate. 2 minute talks are when pupils choose a topic and make a presentation about it.
In R.E we have been making rangoli pattern. Rangoli patterns are normally symmetrical. Rangoli patterns are Hindu works of art made of rice and lots more. They normally contain flowers in the image.
That is this what has been happening this week in 5/6W. Merry Christmas !
