The Wind in the Willows









We really enjoying watching the performance of The Wind in the Willow at school. We were all able to join in and some of us even went on stage and dressed up. We have been talking about the main characters and thinking about the beginning, middle and end of the story.

We made fudge.

Mrs Thurston came to our class today and taught us all how to make fudge. We learned to weigh the ingredients, talk about the changes we could see and then we talked about how to remember the recipe by writing it down. We even learned why people wear these special hats.

Snow!




We explored the snow today. We caught snowflakes on our tongues, made footprints, made snowballs, moved the snow with spades and even painted the snow. When we got really cold, we warmed up with hot chocolate.

Learning Journey Family Sessions, Kites and Pancakes!



It was lovely to see so many grown ups at our Learning Journey Family Session.


We made kites, tested them and talked about how they could be even better.


We walked to the shop in the snow to buy the ingredients for pancakes. We wrote a list, counted our money, bought the ingredients and made the pancakes just like Mr Wolf in our story.


After school, we had a Bedtime Story Time. We dressed in our cosy clothes, listened to stories and had hot chocolate and biscuits. Yum!

Visitors



Mr Rubio came to talk to us about Colombia and Mrs Hunt came to talk to us about The Philippines. We learned that in both countries, Spanish is spoken and we tried to learn a few words. Both visitors talked to us about the hot weather and the animals that live there.








We won the cup this week for the best lining up after playtimes! Well done Bumblebees!

Keeping Safe



We have been learning to keep safe. A visitor came to talk to us and he brought his bears called Bethany and Benjamin. The bears reminded us to hold an adult's hand when crossing the road, to wear bright clothes so that drivers can see us and to keep our seatbelt on when we are in a car.




We have also been learning to keep safe when we use technology. We learned that we should ask an adult if we would like to use many technology such as tablets, laptops, computers, cameras and phones. 

We listened to a story about a penguin who made some safe choices about using his tablet and the Internet. Here is the website if you would like to watch it at home:

Happy New Year

We started the new term with a day learning about Irish culture. Mrs Sullivan told us about how her Irish family celebrate Christmas. Then we pretended to go to Ireland. We looked on the Internet to find out more about it and we found photos of a beautiful place called The Cliffs of Moher. We learned that many Irish people are Christians and that there are many churches in Ireland. We saw photos of Celtic crosses that remind Christian people about Jesus. We listened to the Irish Legend about a giant called Finn. 

We made Irish soda bread.





We made Celtic crosses in clay.





 We imagined and drew Finn's footprint. Then, we tried to estimate how many of our footprints would fit into the giant's footprint.


We pretended to take our caravan to Ireland.
