Hello Beech Class! I hope you are all happy and well. What amazing learning you are all doing. I am so proud of you. Below are some activities for this week. Have fun!

This week is all about food! Yummy! By the end of the week I am hoping you will have created and set up your own African market stall.

You could start by looking at this video of an African Market. Discuss with your family all the sights, sounds and colours you can see. Do you recognise any of the food for sale?


This week’s Literacy activities are:

  • Cooking time! Make something yummy in the kitchen with an adult. You could try a new food. What about making a fruit salad, or a smoothie or maybe some banana bread or pancakes that you could sell on your stall? Remember to listen carefully.
  • Now write up the recipe. What did you used? What ingredients did you need? See if you can write some simple instructions.
  • Draw and label a fruit bowl- activity on Purple Mash, see 2Do
  • Listen to the story ‘Mama Panyas Pancakes’ on YouTube and talk about why it’s important to share
  • Listen and watch the story ‘The Tiger who came to tea’ read by me click here! Excuse Mr Grays bad camera work!!!!
