 Please hand in your reading book and reading record every morning. Remember that you need to read to an adult and get them to sign or initial your reading record book in order for you to progress on the reading race track and win your certificates and prizes!

We have been enjoying learning about Mexico in our topic work this term.

So far we have learned about the geography of Mexico- where it is in the world, how big it is compared to other familiar countries and what the landscape and climates are like.

We have also taken a look at what a typical day would be like for a 10 year old Mexican child- quite different to life for our Cheriton 10 year olds! You might think it'd be great to only go to school for half a day, but the rest of the day is hard work, helping out on the farm, taking crops to market, looking after the animals and doing all your chores!

Because the main language in Mexico is Spanish, we have been learning a few key phrases.

We can count from 0-10 in Spanish and we can have basic conversations including saying hello and goodbye, asking how somebody is, how old they are and what their name is.

 

Next term we are continuing to focus on Mexico where we will learn a little more about the culture, including their food- mmmmmmmm!

But we will also shift our focus to the history of Mexico and we will learn about the Mayan Civilisation.

 

The rest of our term has been packed full of learning and fun!

We love going to our forest schools sessions where we can explore our wonderful environment, investigate animal tracks and sometimes even cook food in the fire.

We had a good fun on Camo Day where our school managed to raise lots of money to go towards a worthwhile charity. We particularly enjoyed the performance from the Band of the Brigade which was spectacular!

Band of the Brigade- Gangnam Style!

We think there may be some of 5T in there somewhere...?
