Term 6

Our Topic this term is: Are We There Yet!


Handa goes on a journey and meets lots of animals along the way. What journeys have the children been on? Do they know of anyone else who has been on a journey? Practical experiences like fruit tasting will give the children lots of opportunities to talk about and describe the food they see and taste and begin to think about where it has come from? Developing some understanding of the differences and similarities in cultures and traditions. Keeping healthy is also really important – what do we need to do to ensure we have a healthy lifestyle?  Transition will also be focus, discussing feelings and identifying strategies children can use as they make the next step in their learning journey.

As we continue to create and think critically, we are able to recognise some differences and similarities in the lives of this country and the lives of different countries, drawing on knowledge from stories non-fiction texts and maps.


Orange Class have been having fun as they embark on their new topic, Are We There Yet? We have enjoyed listening to Handa’s Surprise, and looking at the similarities and differences between Africa and England. We’ve looked at ways of traveling through the savannah by making a jeep, taken a closer look at some of the clothes worn and we’ve even tried some of the exotic fruits- yum!

We’ve been on an ‘African Adventure’. Mr Cook provided us with a musical African experience, where we learnt about some of the different instruments that they like to play. We made our own African jewellery and hair accessories for the occasion. We even got to play the instruments and sing along to an African song!
