What a half term we have had in Reception! We have had so much fun learning all about the world and its different countries in our new topic ‘What a Wonderful World’. We started the term by jetting off in our very own St Julian’s Airways aeroplane, we produced passports and made sure to follow all of the inflight safety instructions.
Our first stop was France – ooh la la! We had lots of fun trying different French cuisine including our very own French onion soup. We participated in the Tour de France and had so much fun walking in our Paris Trashion Week show. We worked so hard creating our costumes out of recyclable materials and loved encouraging our friends by saying “ooh la la” and “fabulous darling” as they walked the runway.
We soon said “au revoir” to France and “kon’nichiwa” to Japan. Here we enjoyed trying noodles and gyozas. We painted beautiful cherry blossom trees and created Koinobori carp kites. We learned that these kites are flown in Japan to celebrate Kodomo no Hi (Children’s Day).
Our last stop before the half term was Uganda. We loved watching the videos of Mr Mansfield’s and Miss Butcher’s trip to Uganda and particularly enjoyed reading their blog posts at story time. We had a lot of fun learning all about Busiu Primary School and spent our time writing letters to send to the children there. On the last day of term, we had an extra special treat when we video called the children at the school. We asked them our questions and sang them the Ugandan songs that we had been learning. We are so lucky to have this special link with Busiu Primary School!
On to our next adventure after half term… I wonder where we will land.
