Happy New Year!

We can't believe that we are actually in 2018, where has the time gone?  We are looking forward to all the fun, learning and friendship that we will share this year. 

 Christmas Party 

We enjoyed a Christmas party with our buddies.  We played games such as musical statues and musical animals.  All of the games allowed us to have lots of fun and build further on our friendships.

Wriggly Nativity 

Well done to the owls for putting on such a super performance of the Wriggly Nativity.  We are so proud of every single one of them and to think they are only four and five years old.  Mrs Scott managed to take a few photographs of us during our dress rehearsal.

Maths Competition 

We were very pleased to be asked to take part in the school maths competition.  We provided the entertainment during half time.  We made it maths based of course.  We sang three maths seemed songs and received a huge round of applause from all our friends and teachers in the school.

We sang 10 green bottles whilst holding some very individual bottles and introducing our unique wobbles as we fell.

People who help us in our community 

Clarissa is the vicar in the local churches Holy Trinity, in Coleford and St Andrew's, in Holecombe.   She came to visit us to tell us all about her job.  We learnt about how her favourite things to do are weddings and christenings.  We also learnt about other things she does such as church services; going to lots of meetings and answering lots of emails.  We then asked her some very sensible questions.

Victoria Park

We have been on our first ever class visit.  We were so excited from the start!  For some of us, it was our first time travelling on a coach.  We boarded the coach, fastened our belts and we were off!  We were so impressed with how much more we could see out of the windows.  We arrived safely at Victoria Park in Bath and after a quick snack we walked to the botanical gardens.  The beauty of the trees, with their colours and their shapes, amazed us.  We then had s picnic in the sun and spent the afternoon playing in the park.  It was such a fun filled day!

Diwali

It was the week that people celebrate Diwali all around the world.  We have learnt about traditional Indian dancing, the story of Rama and Sita, Rangoli patterns and lots more...

As part of our Diwali celebrations, we made Diva lamps from clay and then decorated them. We were very pleased with them!

People decorate the entrance to their houses with beautiful rangoli patterns that are filled with coloured sand.

Buddy Visit to a Local Park

We were so excited to go on a mini visit to a local park in Coleford.  We explored friendship with our buddies, fun in the park and learning how to be safe.

Our buddies walked to the park with us to show us how we can walk safely, as a group, along the pavement.

We went to a park in Coleford with our buddies. We had such fun and gave us the opportunity to build on our friendships even further.

While we were at the park, we saw this scene and thought it was both spooky and beautiful. Two buddies took this photograph on the IPad.

Learning About Owls

As you all know we are in Owl Class, so it only seemed sensible that we learnt about owls.  We have learnt about how they are nocturnal and how they move.  We have enjoyed many great stories featuring owls.  

We have been learning all about owls over the last couple of weeks. We have learnt about their features, such as: their large eyes; their heart shaped faces and their talons.We have been reading books about owls such as Lazy Ozzy and A Bit Lost. We have had great fun acting the stories out with our friends, using soft toys.

We have also been making friends with Speedy, our pet tortoise. We are showing him real care. We have been feeding him, giving him water, providing him with the opportunity to exercise but most importantly , we have been showing him affection. He loves having his shell gently stroked.
