Around the World at Phoenix…
Week commencing 1st November has been a whole school cross curricular week with a geography focus. Each class studied a different country to develop an understanding and celebrate our diverse World. On Monday 8th November the children will celebrate their previous week’s learning with a short presentation by every class to the rest of the school and can dress in the colours of the flag of the country they studied. Take a look below for each classes’ information. (Do not worry if you do not have all the appropriate colours- the overall effect will still be great if your child wears one of the colours)
Nursery India (orange, white and green)
F2 (Classes 1 and 2) – Poland (white and red)
Class 3- Armenia (red, blue,and orange)
Class 4 – Italy (green, white, red)
Class 5 – Pakistan (white and green)
Class 6 – Greece (blue and white)
Class 4 have been learning all about Italy during culture week. We looked at where Italy is on a map and we found out the capital city is called Rome. We made Italian flags. We tasted lots of different Italian food and wrote which one was our favourite. We also made leaning towers of Pisa and Venetian masks. We learned about the Italian artist Michelangelo and we had a go at drawing under the table to see how he painted the ceiling of the Vatican in Rome. We have had lots of fun! Take a look at our photographs below.
The teaching of geography at Phoenix Infant School is designed to provide children with knowledge and understanding of their local area, the United Kingdom and the wider world. Through a broad range of topics the aim is for children to develop a curiosity and wonder about the world that will last a lifetime.
