It's been a week of extremes in Reception. We started planning for our safari trip and exploring warm places. Then the snow arrived at Clifford, so we built snowmen and made snowy pictures. Let's hope that our safari won't need wellies on our feet. Mrs Preston needed a rest after helping 30 Reception children to put on their wellies on Wednesday.
This afternoon we had a visit from Miss Fenner who has spent a year living in Senegal in Africa. She came to talk to us about life in Senegal. We learnt that there are several languages spoken in Senegal including French, Arabic and Wolof. We learn a few phrases in Wolof. Salaam aleekum (hello), Na nga def (how are you) and mangi fi (fine thank you). We dressed up in traditional African dress We tasted an African drink made from the hibiscus flower, made Senegalese flags, looked at traditional Senegalese food and learnt a song.
