Yesterday we had a very special visitor to class one- an elf! He came with a very special letter from Santa Claus saying that he had come to watch us so that he can report to Santa on whether we will be on the naughty or nice list for Christmas this year. The elf flies back to the North Pole every evening to let Santa know how our behaviour has been each day. We are trying very hard to share, help others and be kind because we all want to be on the nice list this year!
We are very excited to have the elf with us. Can you help us to think of a name for him?
What a lovely time the F1 children had yesterday on their first full transition day!
They were all very excited to go to the hall to have dinner and all of them tried hard to eat all of it up! The children enjoyed play time on the big playground too.
In class, we baked and decorated special rainbow fish biscuits. We enjoyed mixing the ingredients and icing the biscuits before eating them just before home time.
Today the full time children have made some lovely birthday cards for the Queen. This afternoon, we walked to the shop, bought some stamps and posted them in the post box.
We hope the Queen looks at them and maybe even sends us a letter to reply!
What a fantastic trip the F2 children had to the library on Wednesday. We were so excited to catch the bus and we walked really sensibly to the library. Two ladies called Kerry and Rebecca looked after us when we get there and showed us around.
We listened to a fantastic story and we even got the chance to join in with puppets. Lastly, we got given our library cards and we picked our own books to borrow and take home. We can’t wait to visit again already.
Today we have been fascinated by some strange rubber gloves. We found them this morning in our choosing area and we described them as ‘hard’ and ‘cold’. After a lot of thinking we concluded that there was ice inside the gloves and we enjoyed cutting them open and talking about how they felt and looked. We enjoyed watching (and feeling) them melt in our hands!
Where else might you find ice? How do you think the ice got inside the gloves?
Class one have been excited today. Mr Huxley was kind enough to bring us in a courgette plant and we have enjoyed looking at it closely through our magnifying glasses and talking about what we can see.
This afternoon the F2 children have been doing some observational drawings of the plant. We can’t wait to paint our drawings next week.
