Red Nose Day and Visitors

Here we are on Red Nose Day!

Ms Easter came to talk to us about Australia. We learned where to find it on a globe and discovered what animals live there.

Many of our parents, grandparents and family came to our Writing Share Afternoon. Mrs Sullivan talked to them about early writing development and then we had lots of time to do some fun writing activities with them.

We wrote recipes, shopping lists and even did some Jedi writing.

Diss Library and Chinese Restaurant

First, we went to Diss library and explored all the stories and information books that are there to borrow.

Next, we walked to the Happy Palace Chinese restaurant. We tasted lots of different foods, used chop sticks and drank iced water from tall glasses. It was such a treat!

World Book Day

Can you guess which books these characters are from?

Visits and visitors

We were inspired by the story of Mr Wolf's Pancakes to make our own pancakes. Just like Mr Wolf, we wrote a shopping list, counted our money and then walked to the village shop to buy the ingredients.

We spotted all sorts of shapes in the shop too.

Anjali's Grandad who is from Sri Lanka came to talk to us about Sri Lanka. We learned about mangoes, coconuts, tea, monsoons and looked at different coins and notes. We watched Anjali do classical Indian dancing wearing beautiful clothes. Anjali's Mum wore a sari.

Bedtime Story Sharing

We all enjoyed our Bedtime Story Sharing Evening. After putting on our cosy clothes, we listened to three stories and had a warm drink and snack. Thank you for supporting this as we have raised enough money to buy a story bag and books.

Once Upon a Time and Far, Far Away........

Our new theme is called 'Once upon a time and far, far away.' We have been sharing some stories about cold places and have been thinking about being polar explorers.

First, we pretended to fly to the North Pole. We learned to take photos using the iPads and found out about polar animals. We listened to an online story about a penguin called Smartie who had a new tablet for his birthday. Smartie helped us to learn to use the Internet safely singing this song:

Before you tap and click 
You need to stop and think 
And tell someone!

We researched  polar bears on the Internet, we learned that they can be 2 sticks (metres) tall!

This week, we pretended to fly to China. Mrs Saunders came to visit and we learned about Chinese New Year.
