Heads, shoulders, knees and toes … with a twist!

Standard

In Penny’s class we learnt the words for the different parts of the body. We won’t forget these words because of the activity we did. What happened was:

1) Our teacher shouted out two different parts of the body (the first one was a part of our body and the second was a part of the other person’s body).

2) Then we had to use our body part (e.g. finger, ear,¬†elbow, etc.) to touch the other person’s body part.

We thought this activity was very funny ūüėā

Tonight we had our famous Fashion Show. The theme was films, and we has some great outfits, including The Lion King and Frozen. The judges did a lot of thinking before they gave the scores. The teachers also got in on the fun and wore the clothes the students had bought them in Bury St Edmunds during the Charity Shop Challenge. Barny is certainly looking very nice…or should I say Barbara!
