Sneezes and Germs

We were learning about sneezes and germs today.
We know that we should use the inside of our elbows if we feel a sneeze or a cough coming.
We know that a sneeze can travel as fast as a car on the motorway.
We watched some great Tigtag videos on this and we tried it out with a balloon and pretend germs (glitter and cornflour).
What a mess!
We will try to catch our sneezes in future!

Learning about Romania

We had an absolutely wonderful talk today from Andreea who came to tell us all about Romania.
We learned all sorts of interesting facts about Romania, about the country, the flag, the population, customs, festivals and foods.
We especially enjoyed trying the Easter egg challenge and tasting pretzels.
Teacher learned lots too!!
Thank you so much  Andreaa.

Learning about Poland, the Lebanon and Portugal

We had two wonderful speakers in to visit our class today to tell us all about their countries.
We had a mum who told us all about Poland, about the country itself and about festivals in Poland.
Marzena also taught us a few words in Polish.
She has spent a lot of time in the Lebanon and so was able to tell us about life in the Lebanon.
We were surprised to hear that it snows there!
Ana told us about some of the Christmas customs in Portugal.  She even baked us a bolo roi cake which they eat on January 6th in honour of the three kings who visited the baby Jesus in the crib.
It is so interesting to hear about life in other countries.
Thank you so much to Marzena and Ana for your great presentations today.
