Two weeks ago at Temple Meadow we were immersed in Carnival. We creatively integrated Music, Art, Geography and Dance into our final outcome; our Carnival Celebration.
Each year group focussed on the Geography of Continents and on animals linked to that Continent.
Nursery – Sea focus - Fish
Reception – Antarctica - Penguin and Seal
Year 1 – North America – Polar Bear and Monarch Butterfly.
Year 2 – Africa – Lion and Elephant.
Year 3 – Australia – Kangaroo and Crocodile.
Year 4 – South America - Dart frog and either Macaw or Toucan
Year 5 – Asia – Panda and Tiger.
Year 6 – Europe – Fox (arctic or urban) and Bat.
On parade on Friday 28th June were huge sea sculptures, created with a visiting artist this week using willow and colourful tissue paper. We also made a Jelly Fish, Star Fish, Dolphin, String Ray and a Turtle. We have irresistible maps and children have made and worn their animal masks at the Carnival.
Our Carnival Parade made use of our fabulous new ‘all weather mile track’ funded by Awards for all, Rowlands Trust and Garfield Weston Foundation. We had runners, children in their animal masks accompanied by music; a dance display and our choir performance. Parents really enjoyed the event in the glorious sunshine.
We also featured in the Express & Star newspaper on Tuesday 9th July 2019!
