Our topic this term is Road Trip USA! Buckle up, sunglasses on- we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A! Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question: Do you wish you were here? Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions: Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service? Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four, they want to spend three weeks in the sun. It’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair- we’re off!
Wow! What an experience! The children fully immersed themselves into just a small part of American culture. The day began with learning some state names and singing the American National Anthem, Star-Spangled Banner.
Robin Class then were told the legend behind the well-known 'dreamcatchers', in order to make their own full of colour and vibrance!
Year 4 and their adults then took to the hall to take part in a variety of American dances, from the Jitterbug to the Harlem Shake and even a bit of line dancing. The children thoroughly enjoyed this activity!
After lunch, the children had the opportunity to make burgers from scratch! Shaping and moulding the beef (or turkey) into a patty shape ready for cooking. They were able to choose burger toppings such as cheese, pickles and ketchup. Not a crumb was left in sight after the children had eaten their very own hand-made burger!
Such a fabulous day! Thank you to parents for supporting our day!
