In Geography we have been learning about different countries around the world. This week we have been learning about China in particular. We were intrigued when we read that people in China eat their food with chopsticks. We decided to test our chopsticks skills and used them to eat some yummy treats.

As we have been learning about France this week, Miss Hodges decided it would be a fantastic opportunity to try some delicious French foods. We tried lots of different foods but our favourite was the chocolate crepes. Unfortunately, a lot of us didnít like the brie cheese because it was so smelly!
