Last week at English Explorers we started our Carnival theme. We all learnt our new song – the English version of “Rucki Zucki”, along with actions! The kindergarten age children read a Julia Donaldson book “The Singing Mermaid”. The story is about a mermaid who joins the circus. Coincidentally our carnival party has a circus theme on the 11th February! After the story we made some masks.
The school age children got into the carnival spirit, by reading 'Dippy Duck Dresses up' which takes place at a fancy dress party in Letterland. Each Letterland character is dressed as someone else so Dippy Duck has a hard job finding out who is who! We practised the 'd' sound and drew an outfit for Dippy to put on next.
