To begin the second half of the Summer Term, pupils at Edward Pauling Primary School read the story ’Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’ during creative week. During this week each year group based their learning around this charming African tale. The pupils learnt what a ‘story from another culture’ means and Literacy, Maths, Art and ICT lessons were linked to the story.
Through writing, the pupils across the school wrote information booklets, diary extracts, wedding invitations and chronological reports to show their learning.
To deepen their mathematical knowledge and skills, there were opportunities for pupils to solve problems involving money and the prices of wedding gifts. In addition, pupils designed a map to show Nyasha’s journey to the city, based on their measurement and direction knowledge.
WE LOVE CREATIVE WEEKS!
