Enterprise Fair at Monega
On June 25th we celebrated Around the World Day. We had the opportunity to explore many diverse places all around the world such as Egypt, Colombia, France, Spain and many more!
Throughout the day we got to explore various landmarks, traditions and cultures from those countries! We had so much fun learning new languages, traditional dances, trying new food and exploring art from across the world! Year 6 even had the opportunity to have a Zoom call with another school in Spain!
Year 4 had a visit from a well known construction company who are working on a development in the local area. They were learning all about sustainability in the work place. The children enjoyed the presentation and even got to take part in a fun game!
In Nursery this week, we have been talking about our local area and the places we see when we go walking. Many children were able to remember Monega Road, Plashet Park, Lidl, Tesco and the sweet shop. Here are some of the maps, which the children made independently. All children showed high levels of fascination and engagement during this activity!
This week KS1 were invited to Manor Park Library to learn all about the Summer Reading Challenge. The children got the chance to read books and learn why the library and reading are so important. Each child was also given a special library card!
This week, the Nursery have been very excited to be growing caterpillars! Having already read the book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, the children have great knowledge of how caterpillars grow and transform into beautiful butterflies! Lots of children were able to explain that the caterpillars are inside a special house called a cocoon and that the caterpillar has to stay inside their cocoon for two weeks. Some children even made observational drawings of what they could see!
As part of their summer topic, Nursery are learning about carnivals around the world. During the half term holidays, the children created their own carnival outfits and musical instruments using resources they already had at home. They enjoyed a carnival celebration on their first day back, exploring the sounds of musical instruments and creating their own dance moves!
Well done to all the children who have recently received reading certificates from their teacher! Certificates are earned by children for reading books and completing their reading journals. After 100 entries children receive a gold certificate and a book to keep! Pictured are some of our happy readers with their certificates.
