Semana española en Maple!
We kicked off Spanish week on Monday with our Spanish lesson with Miss Bonilla. This week we were learning about animals and playing games to work out which animal is which.
On Wednesday we researched a famous Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudi, and the kinds of buildings he created. Then, on Thursday we recreated these in a mosaic style. The children really took their time and used their imaginations during this and it really shows in the results.
On Friday, we used our fractions knowledge to make the traditional Spanish drink sangria (alcohol free of course!). The children really considered what they needed to use and followed the instructions precisely to make a drink that they all enjoyed!
In other news, the sweet pea seeds that we planted without soil have started to grow! I wonder if they will keep on growing into full plants!
Also in science, we have set up an experiment to see whether seeds need both light and water to grow or just one of them. I can’t wait to see the results – hopefully something will start to happen next week!
Finally, and most exciting, Ellie, Imogen, Nati, Alice, Leighton and Jamie took part in the Tag Rugby tournament with some children from Cedar class. They played several games against the other schools within North West Academies Trust, doing a fantastic job. They worked as a team to play to their best with Mr Clark and Mr Rimmer coaching them. We are all very proud of them and hope to see more great teamwork from Year 1 and 2 soon!
