This week we have been learning all about the country 'Argentina'.
We have drawn Argentina in the school World Cup sweep and this week is a 'World Cup Week' at Westfield.
We have discussed the World Cup, and what the winning football team will recive if they win and looked at the flag of Argentina and England and made our own in class.
We have also decorated our classroom to show everyone who the country is that we are supporting. We used our improving scissor skills to cut out the flags and the letters in the word 'ARGENTINA'. The children cut out the letters that were important to them:
R- Leighton coloured Ruby's name
I- Lucas coloured this one
A- Ava- Mae
We also made 'empanadas'. These are a traditional savoury pastry of Argentina. The children helped to cut up the peppers and onions and added the spices to the mince to make the centre of the pastry.
They were delicious!
You can make them at home using this recipe (we didn't add the chilli and chilli powder)
We then took our flags and the huge flag that Mrs Littler's group had made in their group sessions to the MUGA and had our picture taken for twitter. We have tweeted on our school twitter page and tagged in Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Pau Dybala. These are three very important football players in the Argentinian team.
In addition to that, we have been very busy in our Maths group this week learning about patterns, shapes and size ordering. You can see our lovely display of shape patterns and repeating patterns on the display board in the creative area. Pop in and take a look.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed this week and remember to watch Argentina's match this weekend on Saturday afternoon @ 2pm versus Iceland on ITV.
COME ON ARGENTINA! (and ENGLAND of course!)
