An Indian afternoon

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Our class book The Tiger Child is set in India.  It is all about a tiger who goes looking for fire.  This week we had an Indian afternoon to learn about India.  We located the UK and India on a world map, tasted Indian food, listened to Indian music and found out what it is like to live in India.

Welcome to a new school year in The Kestrels!  This term we are learning all about fire.  We started our topic with an outdoor learning lesson.  Piers taught us how to start a fire using a ‘flint and steel’ and cottonwool.  We worked in teams and we all managed to start our group fire and keep in alight by feeding it lots of dry leaves and twigs.  The Year 2’s were even allowed to use axes to chop up sticks!
