Launch Day Autumn 1
To launch into our new topic, the children dressed up to represent their culture and brought in their summer projects from home. Children shared their culture with the rest of the class with presentations, flags, pictures, clothes and special things such as rose water all the way from Bulgaria! During the day we travelled around different continents. Some examples include Asia, where we smelt and looked at spices and practiced our Bollywood dancing, for Africa we made a drum circle, each taking turns to set a beat and for North America, we learnt a Native American song 'Land of the silver birch'. We also created flip books for our own 'world' painting a globe, and adding increasingly smaller sheets over to represent our continent, our country, our city and finally our home.
