Countries of the World Landing


On Monday 21st May Year 3 invited parents into the classroom to share what they had learned about countries of the world this half term.


The afternoon began with group presentations filled with fascinating facts about the continents of the world and the countries that are within them.

"Suriname is the smallest country is South America, it could fit inside Brazil 50 times!" - Taylor

There was then the opportunity to try some different snacks and nibbles from a variety of countries. We had food from every continent and even some homemade dishes from Ecuador.

"I tried lots of things that I had never tried before, the French cheeses were delicious!" - Ta'Rayah 

Finally, there was a quiz that tested both pupils and parents knowledge of countries and continents!
