On Monday, the Rainforest Cafe was open for the children. They tried and tasted lots of tropical fruits: mango, pomegranate, pineapple, coconut, figs... We found some new things that we liked. I have seen some of the children out on break with their new found love for fruit with eating some of these on their breaks!!

We also made rainmakers and decorated tropical animals and imagined we were in South America. When we tip them up and down slowly it sounds like rain. (dried lentils, peas, black eyed peas).

On Monday we used puppets for Where the Wild things are to help us make a post card.

Tuesday we did some practical measuring using metre sticks – we found how tall we were.

In music we created some sound effects for Where the Wild things are.

On Thursday, we made a map for where the wild things are. We added physical features that Max explored on his ‘adventure’ (journey) and listed these on a key. Then we tea - stained these to make them look FAB! Before this we were able to recreate a drama piece for all characters to explore the island...

Also in maths, we have been looking at multiplication through arrays and solving missing number problems. Played ‘Beat it’ with multiplication recall facts and Hit the Button.

Many thanks
