A Tea Party for Mummy :)

This morning we measured bananas! We discussed whether it was better to use a ruler of a bendy tape measure for this. The girls the spent a good 15 minutes racing around outside measuring everything they could see.

Worksheets and seashell bookmarks.

Ballet Girl practising some new Caribbean vocabulary.

Palms and sand pictures.

Imagining. We looked at photos of the Caribbean coastline and then listened to some calming sea music, while 'floating in the sea'. They imagined the hot sun, the dolphins, the warm sea water, the fish and the feeling of bobbing up and down on the waves.
Then we turned on some Cuban music and they had a good old boogie!

Face painting time! Caribbean Carnival girls!

Island collage.

Tuesdays are gymnastics lesson days :)

We began our Caribbean project by making banana bread.

Our banana bread :) We ate it for lunch with strawberries and yoghurt.

Being hurricanes.

We looked at some Caribbean flags, the Island of Puerto Rico, the idea of Island hopping, the weather, palm trees and started learning the names of the Islands.

We read some lovely books about the Caribbean.

A perfect excuse to set up the play-sand :)
