The Village That Vanished

In year 4 we have been learning about a book called the Village That Vanished. Last week we acted out some part’s of the book. We made some trees because the setting of the book was set in Africa. We wrote our own prayer because at the beginning of the story a woman  said a prayer. Today we wrote our own story set in Africa in our big write.

Year 5 Head Dresses

In the last week of school, year 5 have been making carnival headdresses just like Brazil. Because a lady, who makes headdresses100_1210for carnivals, came in to show us 2 of them so we decided to make some ourselves. Everyone put a lot of effort into them and eventually finished them and they were fantastic.
