We have had a fascinating time this term learning about what it is like to live in Africa. Our term had a Stunning Start with Ian from KiC theatre who took us on an adventure around Africa, exploring different landscapes of Africa and some of the animals that live there. There has been lots of food tasting, from trying some exotic fruit as seen in Handa’s Surprise, to creating our own fruit kebabs. We had to be careful with the sharp knives and kebab sticks! The highlight of this term was during the last week, when we met three owls and a hawk, and watched the birth of our baby chicks – we created some very interesting names for them! Outside we have been busy toasting marshmallows with Miss Dengate and practising our bike riding with the Bikeability team. This term we have also welcomed Mrs Suresh and Mrs Smal into Angora.

Angora class have had a busy term learning about all different types of anniversaries! We learned about the origins of Bonfire Night and why we celebrate it now. In Art we were inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock to create a firework picture, and then we made our own guys (Guy and Glenda) to burn as part of Year 2’s Great Fire of London burning! Angora and Alpine were very busy practising for their Christmas play, and we have also been exploring about how Christians celebrate special times (such as Christmas).
Welcome back to school Angora - how lovely it is to teach you in year 1! We have had a busy term getting to know each other and getting back to learning after our long summer break.
Towards the end of term, we went on an Autumn walk together and found several signs of Autumn. We particulalry enjoyed crunching the leaves under our feet! We were also very lucky because we went out on our school minibus to visit Godinton House. Rachel (who showed us around) thought we were extremely well behaved! During the morning, we even ventured down into the cellars where there were lots of spiders and cobwebs!
