Black History Month, Mammoth Hunt and skeletons


We began our Black History Month celebrations this week with a drama workshop about significant historical figures who stood up for themselves and inspired many others. We read about them and created freeze frames


On Friday, we had an amazing Capoeira session and there was a big event after school with lots of exciting activities. Thank you to everyone who joined the fun!

Next week, we will be learning about how black musicians have shaped musical history. If you would like to, you could find out at home about a significant black musician and come in next week ready to share what you have learned.

In English, we learned a new story called Mammoth Hunt. We will be using this story next week as inspiration for our writing so it would be great if you could continue to look at your story map at home to remind you of the key events.

In science, we explored bones and looked closely at a human skeleton. We discussed that skeletons are designed to support us, protect us and help us move.
