Despite the cold weather we have been recently having in Milton Keynes, our new topic is taking us south to the warm, wonderful and wild continent of Africa! We have already enjoyed discovering more about the countries which make up this incredible continent, with the children creating their own presentations about 30 of the 54 countries. The presentations were excellent and helped us to learn more about these fascinating countries which sit either side of the equator.
Over the Spring Term, we had a wonderful time learning all about World War Two. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at this topic and learnt so much about all different aspects of this time in history. We were lucky enough to have some wonderful books donated to us from a member in the village, which really helped support our learning. Additionally, we were able to finally hold our topic day where the children came to school dressed as people who may have lived between 1939 - 1945. One of our topic day tasks was making a traditional vegetable soup (which would have been eaten during rationing). The children loved it and had a great time preparing the vegetables.
