What a great start to the new year. The children are fully immersed in our new topic ‘Toys and Us!’ and are working hard. We are especially enjoying our themed days. Last week we brought in our favourite toys and this week our favourite teddy bears. What will it be next week? We can’t wait!

We also had a visitor who brought in a very old teddy bear and we were able to develop our questioning skills. Thank you Mrs Hewitt!

Decoration Day

The classrooms are now ready for Decoration Day. The day when the children in school are all mixed up and sent around the classrooms to make Christmas Decorations. These decorations are then used to decorate the school. We can’t wait! We will all be dressed up in Christmas outfits and ready to sing many Festive songs as we create. So get your outfits ready and don’t forget to bring a chocolate item or a bottle as a donation for the Christmas Fair next Friday.

An early night may be needed!

Children In Need

We’ve had a fantastic day today. We started off by arriving at school in our own clothing choice before some of us had spots painted on our faces. We purchased Pudsey Bracelets and took part in some related activities. We raised lots of money for the charity and even got to present the cheque to the real Pudsey Bear at the end of the day!

Who is hugging Pudsey?

Remembrance

This week we have found out why we commemorate Remembrance Day. We have done lots of poppy based activities which are displayed in our Learning Journey Floor Books. Our apple printed poppies were added to wreathes which we laid at the Cenotaph at St. John’s Church. We held a two minutes silence whilst we thought about the soldiers who have given their lives for our freedom.

In the afternoon we invited our families and our community into school for refreshments, prayers and songs. Each class took part and we really enjoyed singing ‘Daisy, Daisy!’ 

 

Bonfire Night

As always we plan for the children’s interests and next steps in learning. When talking about our Bonfire Night experiences – Jack asked for a Bonfire at school, Nia-Marie wanted to know how we make fire and why we need wood and Carmi and Lewis asked if we could cook marshmallows!

So, of course, we built a fire and toasted marshmallows:

After sharing the story ‘Stone Soup’ and completing lots of related activities, we decided to make our very own! We washed, peeled and chopped all the vegetables. Some children even brought in their own to add to the mix. We really enjoyed sharing our very own soup!
