New Year, New Me
Welcome back! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas break and are sufficiently full of mince pies, Christmas pud, Quality Street, etc.
We have come back with a bang, as Samba lessons started today. We arrived promptly in the music room to an array of Samba drums, Ganzas and Agogos, eager to start playing. We were delegated our instrument for the morning and were taught some different rhythms, starting with “I Like Chocolate In The Microwave” (ask your children). We will be doing Samba on a Friday morning for the next ten weeks, culminating in a fantastic assembly, in which parents are invited to attend to see our hard work.
Our Science topic this week has been Teeth and Digestion, which we have linked to Recount writing in English. Today we watched an episode of The Magic School Bus, in which the children took a journey through the digestion system (not literally). If you could encourage your child to watch the link again at some point over the week, it would really help support our English lessons next week.
On a similar note, a gentle reminder that your child’s Greek Project is due in on Monday 23rd January.
