Family Zone - Wednesday 25th March
Children and parents from Worlebury and other
schools attended a Space Workshop after school run
by Worle School's Extended Learning Service.
It was an informative and fun session enjoyed by
African Inspired Food
In Term 3 Year 5 had a fantastic term exploring the
continent of Africa. They have used atlases to
investigate different countries, researched the
different rivers, become knowledgeable about the
variety of landscapes and created their own African
myth inspired by traditional stories. Everyone loved
finding out about the lemurs on Madagascar and
before letting their imaginations run wild and
creating a newly discovered African animal which was
written about in a detailed report. To finish off,
we enjoyed tasting African fruits and designing our
own Morocan inspired cous cous dish. Our cooking
skills have definitely improved and it was great to
feast on healthy tagine and cous cous on the last
day of term.
The DfE have recently reinforced the need ďto create and enforce a clear
and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the
fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of
law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance
of those with different faiths and beliefs.Ē
