On the 8th of May we had a European Cultural day in school. All of the classes had a chosen country within the EU to research. Our chosen country was Greece. We put a lot of work into our project, we really enjoyed learning about Greece. As part of the project we learned about the Greek flag, the location of Greece, Ancient Greek clothes, Greek food and the origins of the Olympics.We enjoyed learning how to make hummus. We also got to taste a variety of Greek foods.
We enjoyed learning about Symmetry this month. We learned that Symmetry is all around us. We had great fun making colourful symmetrical butterflies. As our Easter holidays were fast approaching, we enjoyed learning about symbols of Easter.We made cool Easter egg patterns using different colours of paint.
We were very busy in March. We had Marty Mone visit us and perform his single "Hit the Diff". We really enjoyed listening to him. As St Patrick's Day was approaching, we had a non uniform day and got to wear all things green. We also completed lots of St Patrick's Day artwork including Irish flags, shamrocks and also the legendary pot of gold under the rainbow.
