Thanksgiving 

This week Zane and Habiba are travelling to America to find out about the festival of Thanksgiving. 

We will be learning about the number block number 6 and counting out arrangements of 6 turkeys from a larger number. We will also be adding foods to our Thanksgiving plates and writing a menu for our Thanksgiving dinner. 

 

Can you design a Thanksgiving card to invite the Native American Indians to dinner. You might want to craft a Native American Indian Headdress or even make a pumpkin pie. Please see the ideas below. We will also be exploring the sound 'sh this week. 

Watch the story below about Thanksgiving to give you some ideas.
