On DT Day Songani Class was busy with preparing healthy food. First we talked about the different types of fruit and vegetables, we were washing, cutting and smashing them and we also had to grill our potatoes on the bbq outside. At the end of the day we tasted everything.....yummy, that was delicious! We have great learners but also great cooks in Songani Class.
Just before DT Day Songani Class went to the market. We had to buy some fruit and vegetables. After a nice walk we arrived at the market and in small groups we did some shopping there. We bought tomatoes, lemons, potatoes, carrots etc. We needed to ask for the prices and we had to decide if we were getting the cheap or the more expensives tomatoes for example. We also looked around at the market and what a great things the children told us: “I don’t want to buy watermelon because it is too heavy to carry!”, “How much are lemons?” and “I want to have the big carrots please”. We also found out that they make their vegetables and fruits wet to keep it fresh and we saw that they are selling baskets on the market too. With a safe walk back we arrived at school again.
In Songani Class we are learning and playing around the topic 'healthy food'. We had a fruit picnic to find out which fruit is our favourite fruit and what the fruit names are. We were talking about: where does our food come from? and we found out why you should eat healthy food instead of unhealthy food. Our fruit and vegetable shop 'Banana town' is open now!
We build up our phonics tree by learning four new sounds every week! We know the sound, the song and the action....isn't that great? During our play based and guided learning we are busy with using the sounds in the activities. Some of us are writing their names already too.
During the day we also have other nice activities together: we are playing outside with the water, we sing a song or read a book on the carpet and every day we have our snack time and play time outside.
