This week we have been busy learning about Captain Cook’s life up to and including his first voyage around the world. We learnt how he grew up dreaming of becoming a sailor, his secret mission to find Terra Australis and his encounters with the Maoris in New Zealand.
This week we have been learning about how Leeds Corn Exchange has changed over the years. We learnt how in the past it was used for the trading and storage of corn. However, today you are more likely to see people enjoying a coffee or a hair cut. We acted out the scenes of the trading floor of the past and then the interactions seen today.
Our value this week has been kindness. After hearing Mrs Stott’s story about a neighbour who secretely put out and collected people’s bin as an act of kindness, we thought we would have a go. We have been acting as kindness ninjas all week, secretly doing our own kind acts around school.
