Around The World WC: 1.02.21

This weeks theme is: Around The World
The 10 Best Languages to Learn in the World -
To start off this theme we have been lucky enough to work with our Music Therapist Charlotte. Charlotte has been very busy creating songs and activities for us to take part in linked to our Around The World theme. We would love to have some videos sent back to us of our children joining in with the songs, making music and activities. 
Just click on the links below and have some fun!
As part of this weeks theme we can listen to different languages, try foods from around the globe, explore flags and scenery and think about similarities and differences.
