During our topic about the history of Sir Harry's we talked about the past. In our own families we have different generations, our journey of life. In our role play area we went from the house to our grandparents house for a sleepover. But everything starts by talking about which family member you want to be that day....
By talking about our families we also found out that taking pictures is important when you have that special family time. That was one of the reasons to create a photographer's studio in our role play area.
For our Science Week about 'Exploration and Discovering' we made a bug hotel. Every day we were counting how many bugs were visiting our hotel. It was interesting to compare our predictions to the results in our chart.
We also planted beans during Science Week. It's great to watch them growing. First at the window, then outside in the garden.
For DT Day this term the whole school was preparing food from the past. Our Songani Class was cooking nsima, vegetables and bean soup. We went to the market to buy charcoal, flour and vegetables. We had great help from Liya's Mum, Dylan's Mum and Dylan's grandparents. After cutting, washing, cooking and preparing everything it was finally time to enjoy the yummy food!
We visited a construction site because of our great learning is about how our school was built in the past. We saw the cement mixer, the construction workers measuring the ground and using the bricks to build the new building, etc.
In 1959 they were planting a tree in front of our school. Mr. Ben could tell us everything about it. We went to the new Secondary building to have a look and planted our own 'Songani tree' in the garden there.
Our first topic is 'The History of Sir Harry's'. This is a whole school topic. In our Songani Class we will be focusing on 'Time travel....me and my school'. In our role play area we have a buidling site at the moment. That's the place where our construction workers are making plans and realizing the most impressive buildings.
