Our topic for the last half term in Nightingale class was ‘Rumble in the Jungle’. We spent a few weeks doing Design Technology. For our Design Technology, we had to make bags suitable for tourists who were going to visit the jungle. Everyone’s bag had to have a jungle design and needed to be strong enough to carry to all of the tourist’s items. Designs included leaves, butterflies, animals and trees. In art, we stuck to the jungle theme and used chalk pastels to create different animals from the jungle. It was so much fun!

Within our writing sessions, we took a trip around the world with the book ‘Atlas of Adventures’. We visited different countries and had to write up facts about the places that we visited in our very own passports that we created before giving each country a stamp. My favourite place that we visited was Mexico (Evie) and mine was the Great Barrier Reef in Australia (Grace).

Maths, we focused on angles and learnt about acute, right angles and obtuse angles! As well as all this learning, we also had our school production, sports day and our class camping trip. We had so much fun! We did wacky races, created lanterns, sang lots of songs and even had our dinner and breakfast cooked on the campfire!
