6JH Are Carrot Winners! 🥕🥕🥕

After winning the prize for the most carrot tokens awarded this half term, we decided to decorate gingerbread for the afternoon! We had lots of fun and made even more mess!

Well done 6JH, you’ve worked so hard this half term and deserved a lovely treat!

Keep it up and let’s hope for another carrot party next half term!

Dancing Calacas! 💀💃🏽🇲🇽

Another of our activities for this “Pen Free Friday” was to create dancing calacas!

Calacas (skeletons) are used during the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico – shown in funny positions and with bright colours – to show people not to be afraid of death!

What else have you learned about Dia des los Muertos?

Google sketch up projects: El Castillo!

This week we’ve been learning all about the culture and history of the Mayans, who were an ancient civilisation of people across Central America. We learned about a famous temple in the city of Chichen Itza, named El Castillo. (Who can comment below with the English translation?)

Check out of Google sketch up recreations of El Castillo!

HOLA MEXICO!

After a lovely long Christmas break, we are back with a bang for the start of our new topic: Hola Mexico!

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks, not only with maths and literacy, but also learning about the geography and history of Mexico and its amazing culture!

You can see some of our class members below, proudly presenting their Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) masks.

Keep up to date on everything that we’ve been doing by checking the blog regularly!

New Hope Club – We Three Kings

 

Lyrics:

We three kings of orient are,
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and a mountain,
Following yonder star.
Oh, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide to the perfect light.
Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,
Gold I bring to crown him again
King for ever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.
Oh, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide to the perfect light.
We three kings of orient are,
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and a mountain,
Following yonder star.
Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,
Gold I bring to crown him again
King for ever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.
Oh, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide to the perfect light.
