This week is International week and the children have been extremely busy learning all about the Caribbean!
Year 2 went on an imaginary safari across the Caribbean to spot some animals that live in the wild! The children found out lots of fascinating facts and wrote some wonderful sentences in their fact booklets. Ask them to tell you what they learnt about!
Comparing the UK and the Caribbean
The children have also looked on Google Earth to see where in the world the UK is and the Caribbean, followed by comparing the similarities and differences between both, looking at houses, beaches , fruit and the weather.
The children have learnt all about Mola Folk Art and have designed their own, choosing one of the Caribbean animals they have learnt about. Instead of using traditional Mola art resources, such as fabric, the children used coloured paper and practised mastering their cutting skills using scissors. They have also made headdresses in preparation for Samba dancing!
Did you know some new Mola art is inspired by comic book characters? Why not try making some Mola art at home using paper and scissors and making this art work?
Samba with Mrs Morgan
The children will be listening to traditional Caribbean music and learning some dance moves with Mrs Morgan later in the week.
The children will be writing a traditional Caribbean recipe – Banana muffin cakes, which they will be making and eating. Here is the recipe if you would like to try them at home…
