We have been using the Ipads this week to help us find out some new information about the athlete Usain Bolt. From our research, we found out who he is, why he is famous and that he has achieved more than one world record! Some of us think that we can beat his time of 9.58 seconds for the 100m sprint, so we have decided to challenge ourselves to try and achieve this next week!
This week, we won the reading challenge and we were all very excited when we found out!! We loved the tea party and enjoyed eating all of the delicious food and drink

We made our own Olympic torches and took them outside to have an opening ceremony and competed in some sporting events.

On Thursday 22nd April, we celebrated Earth Day. We started the day by discussing what we already know about recycling. We thought about the materials we use in school that we could recycle and made posters to help share this knowledge with others. Next, we used the litter pickers to help tidy up our school and we were shocked by how much litter we found! We learnt about why it is important to look after our planet and used our art skills to paint planet Earth. Finally, we learnt a song about recycling and had a lot of fun singing this J
