Welcome to our blog post. This week we explored Switzerland. We had such fun learning about the mountains, lakes, foods and traditions. Did you know that the flag is square and not rectangle? (Mrs Franks didn't know this until after our flag making activity - so please excuse the rectangular paper - every day is a learning day) We used red paint and a rolled up cloth to 'sponge' our paint. It was super messy and great fun. We sampled some scrumptious Swiss food this week. Fon
This week has been full of food and fun. The children have enjoyed a few Swiss themed lunches, cheese fondue and chocolate eggs. We even managed to have lunch in the garden a couple of times. The children painted the Swiss flag which we learnt is the only flag that is square and not rectangle. We talked about how the Red Cross originated in Switzerland and the children played lots of role play with the doctor’s kit. The teachers have had injections, blood taken, splinters re
Happy Nowruz This week we have had a lovely time celebrating Iranian New Year. We were lucky enough to have Kayvan’s Mummy come in and tell us lots about Iran.

Nowruz means ‘New Day’ in Farsi, it is the first day of the Iranian calendar and usually falls at the same time as the Sprin
This week we have talked about America. It’s a big place and covered three pages in our atlas book. The children enjoyed asking about the buildings and all the animals that they could see. Following their interest in the buildings we used duplo and wooden blocks to try and build our own replicas. A favourite being the Golden Gate Bridge and the White House. An America topic wouldn’t be complete without some dressing up. The children explored many different princess and super

Bonjour! Welcome to the Lindfield blog post. This week, our journey took us to France. We enjoyed lots of activities. We painted the French flag, identifying the colours and some children even mixed the colours to experiment with what new colours they could make. We learnt about the Eiffel Tower. Did you know the tower took 2 years, 2 months and 5 days to build. The tower is 324 metres tall. There are 20,000 light bulbs in the tower! There are two restaurants with the tower.
