A Taste of Mexico

This half term Year Two have been leaning all about Mexico.  We have learned lots of facts and compared Mexico with South Shields.


In Art we even made paper mache masks and decorated them.


 Today we have tasted Mexican foods such as sour cream dip, tomato salsa and Guacamole along with Doritos and Taco shells. We enjoyed the sour cream dip, the Salsa, the Doritos.  We didn’t really enjoy guacamole as it tasted like vegetables!


Ukuleles in 5F

Since the beginning of the Autumn term we have had Ian McKone, a ukulele teacher from the Sage Gateshead, come into our class every Wednesday to teach us how to play the Ukuleles.

On the 16th of December we put a gig on for our parents to showcase the songs we learned this term.

And the festive favourite to end the Christmas term “Jingle Bells

If you were unable to attend the performance, or you are just a ukulele enthusiast, we are happy to post a video of our performance.
