We visited Africa this week! We found the country on our class globe and learnt about it’s climate. We focused on Kenya and learnt about the Maasai Tribe, how to say hello in Swahili (Jambo!) and about what it would be like to go on safari. We made our own safari world on our class tuff tray and went on our own safari adventure. We grabbed our clipboards and our binoculars and wrote lists of what animals we could see!
This week, we have been learning about 3D shapes. We compared them to 2D shapes and talked about the differences. We learnt about the shape properties and names and played lots of sorting games. We listened to the 3D shape song which was very popular! Finally, we built 3D shape models, naming the shapes we used and why.
