Multicultural Week

Our Multicultural Week According to the Children.....

 

Through the Naughty Bus book Class R have been looking at London. As a class we made a model of the London Eye, we had a competition to see who build the best bridge over the River Thames and have made biscuits.

 

In class 1 we have learnt about Jamaica. It is in the Caribbean and they use dollars and cents. Two famous people from Jamaica are Mary Seacole and Usain Bolt. We have also tried Jamaican food and drawn a Jamaican flag.

 

In class 2 we have been learning about Russia. We have cooked Russian food ‘blinis’ with sour cream and jam on top. Yummy! We have been making Russian dolls and a collage of the red square museum. In the hall we learnt a Russian dance, it was quite hard especially the twirling. Mrs Thomas showed us her photographs from when she lived in Russia, they were very interesting and detailed. We have also learnt how to write our names in Russian.

 
In class 3 on Wednesday we tried some African food we tried boerewors most people didn’t like them but some people did. We tried a milk tart, lots and lots of people loved in only two people didn’t like it. On Tuesday we did African dancing it was really fun we were really good at it. We did ndebele they looked really cool but it was really hard for some people. We put lots of colours they all looked really different. We listed to African fairy tales but most people already knew it, have you heard of it, because it is called the Princess and the Frog. We made a story map and then from the story map we made a story. We learnt about African money, we put rands and cents that was a bit hard and a bit easy.

 

This week in class 4 we have been looking at the Continents of North and South America. We began the week by looking at Martin Luther King and his fight for equal rights. We prepared and cooked some delicious tortillas and guacamole and in maths we ordered the heights of the Mountains within the Andes.

 

This week class 5 have been focused on India. On Monday they were learning about Dala Lama and rounding the populations of Indian cities. On Thursday they did the Chiyya Chiyya and showed Mrs Hanlon. Then on Friday a road safety lady came in to talk to year 5 about road safety.

 

This week class 6 have been learning about New Zealand. We have done a manner of things including looking at Benjamin Zephaniah and his poem. The British (serves 60 million) which is about cultural diversity. In maths we rounded the population of NZ cities. We got to recreate the Haka and researched the best places to visit in NZ.
