For the holidays , we wondered if the children could create a toy of their own and then share with the rest of the class next week. 
This might be a  version of Snakes and Ladders using an old cereal box, a puppet made from an old sock or a game of Snap - the options are endless. 
Here are some from ideas from Google to help -

KS1 International Club Travel to Peru

Today in International Club we learned all about Peru. 

We went to Machu Picchu with Rosie and Julian - have a look at their adventure here:

Then we learned some Spanish - we found out how to say hello, goodbye and thank you.

Finally we made South American arpilleras.

Using a cardboard outline we wrapped wool around the shape to create an interesting texture and mix of colours. We had to decide how to attach the wool to the arpillera - we tried using glue and tape, and some of use tried tying a knot in the wool.


Have a look at some of our great finished products!
