Children In Need
This week we created a poster as a class using pic collage on the Ipad. We made a poster to tell our friends and families about our Stay and Play sessions we held to raise money for Children in Need. We have been baking and decorating cakes ready to sell. We had a great time with our families, buying cakes, eating them and playing around the classroom. Thanks to all parents and grandparents that attended the sessions and gave a donation.
We raised a huge total of £84.31
This week we have looked at Bonfire night and Diwali. We have looked at staying safe, why we celebrate and how we celebrate the different festivals. We did some big art work outside re-creating the fireworks we had seen and made edible sparklers. On Wednesday we looked at Diwali. We made Diva Lamps using clay which was really hard to do and the children worked really hard to manipulate them. We are going to paint them next week as we are waiting for them to dry. We also made our own jewellery and tried some Indian food.
Golidlocks Crime Scene
This week we came into the classroom to find our home corner in a BIG mess! We found footprints, porridge and a pink bow along with the chairs, table and food all over the floor. We had to solve the mystery! Who could it be? Why were they there?
After much discussion we decided we thought it must have been Goldilocks. We spent our morning making telescopes to search for her and finding clues around the school. We asked Mrs Griffiths but she had not seen her. Some of the children claimed to have seen her on their way to school. One even made her the porridge to bring with her! We then made some posters to help people find her. At the end of the day Megan and Betsy thought we should leave her a note to ask her to tidy up. On Thursday morning it was completely tidy with a note saying 'Sorry!' We have a had busy week investigating this crime! Here are some pictures the children wanted to share with you.
