I would like you all to have a go at learning as much as you can about Kenya! As you go along you might see how their lives are very different to ours. I have created a little pack below to help you find out all you can about Kenya. Once you have your facts about Kenya I would like you to compare life in Kenya to our life at home, there are example sheets below to help you. Next I would like you to research the Maasai people, learning all about their culture! I have also included some art activities that you can do to, you can create your own Maasai jewellery!
Hello Sunflowers, welcome to May! This is my favourite month of the year, no idea why? It might be because it's my birthday this month!!

Don't forget to send me anything you have been working hard on at home my email is: email@example.com. See you soon!
This term we would be learning all about Vincent Van Gogh! I would like you to research and create a fact file all about Van Gogh. I have also attached an exercise which allows you to read about one of his famous paintings and answer questions about what you have learnt. You can even have a go at drawing your own version of the painting, this is really impressive as his painting is about Sunflowers!! I have added some other interesting ideas of ways to make your own sunflower art at home. I would love to see what you all come up with, remember all of our fabulous work is displayed right here on our web page so ask an adult to send it to me!

Using the internet and the resources below I would like you to make a holiday brochure about the 7 continents of the world. On each continents section I want to know as many amazing facts as you can tell me! You might even want to have a go at drawing the shape of the continents creating your very own world map. I would love to know what the most popular foods are or how many people live there, I'm so excited to see what you find out!
Here is the continents song! (I apologise now it's very catchy) this will help with some facts.
Cbeebies Go Jetters have some useful learning clips with world facts. They also provide notes on what to do next or even what questions to ask your children after they have watched the short clips! Once you click on each continent inside they have a whole folder you can download of additional learning resources. This pack includes a useful powerpoint with related facts.

Visitors from our local church came and delivered a workshop based on the Christmas story. Each station represented a section of the story and allowed the children to creatively retell in small groups.
Some children from Sunflower and Clover classes enjoyed an over night stay at the award winning CHET centre. We had an amazing time exploring the woods and completing the adventure courses. We over came challenges and even took part in the maze! Luckily no one was lost! Santa even came to visit us in the evening bringing with him selection boxes while we sang our favourite Christmas songs!
We had a very fun afternoon taking part in our Santa dash! We ran around and used up all of our energy whilst wearing our Christmas hats!
