Sponsored Obstacle Course for 50th Birthday
Thank you to everyone who sponsored us. Not only did we manage to make some money for well needed equipment but we also had lots of fun. After completing the course we had birthday cake, sang happy birthday and Mrs Scott gave us all a cup as a present.
We have been lucky enough to be able to watch the finished recorded production of Cinderella and Rockerfella with our buddies. We were even treated to some pop corn. It was such a special way to spend some time with our buddies.
Congratulations to our buddies!
We felt very privileged to be able to watch our buddies perform their play Cinderella Rockerfella, we couldn't believe how hard they had all worked and how talented they all were. We were left feeling incredibly proud of our buddies
Court Farm Visit
We had a fantastic visit to Court Farm. We learnt a lot about farm animals and life on a farm and then we had fun just being with our friends. It was such an exciting day and a day packed with firsts for a lot of us: the first time on a class visit; the first time on a coach; the first time away somewhere without our parents; the first time on certain play equipment and the first time visiting a farm. The fun started with our buddies waving us goodbye!
Learning about the farm animals
Farmer Ed met us at the coach and said hello to everyone of us by name. He then teased our teachers and made us laugh! We were introduced to Farmer Sam who was going to show us around the farm, introduce us to the animals and tell us a little about them. We learnt lots of interesting facts about animals we learnt that baby goats are kids, baby sheep are lambs and baby cows are calves. There was a horse called Lucy who liked to scratch her bottom.
We have been listening to different versions of Stone Soup. The all vary a little but the main theme is the same - the villagers are tricked into sharing their food in order to make a soup for them all to share. We have made four different soups this week and shared them with out classmates - which soup would be your favourite?
The 3 Little Pigs
We have looked at a variety of different versions of the story of the 3 little pigs. We are fantastic at telling the story and can even use different voices for the characters. We have completed lots of fun activities based around the story and have even thought of alternative endings ourselves. Some of us thought that the Big Bad Wolf wasn't really trying to eat the 3 pigs he just had hay fever and was sneezing so he accidently blew the house of straw and the house of sticks in.
We have had the best day ever. the sun was shining we all competed in sports activities and we all displayed great team spirit. Mrs Tesoriere saud she had never been so proud. every individual put their all into every sporting stations and every individual cheered each other on. We would like to thank the sports captains and especially Mr D for such a great event!
There was much excitement today in Owl Class garden ... We have had visitors and not just any old visitors... We have had some fairies visit our garden. They have made a fairy garden, they have painted our garden features and they have even cleaned and tidied. We couldn't believe our eyes. Mrs Tesoriere was in the classroom and we all ran to tell her- she said our eyes were so wide with surprise and excitement that we really did look like owls. The fairies left us a letter to explain that if we didn't look after our garden properly they would have to leave it - We don't want that!!!
Keeping Healthy and Safe
We have spent the last few weeks learning about all the ways we can take care of ourselves and others. We have learnt the importance of keeping ourselves clean, eating a healthy and balanced diet, having plenty of exercise and a good amount of sleep and rest, we have also reminded ourselves on the importance of recognising our feelings and keeping safe when we are using screens.
We worked with 10 year 5s to investigate a number of different experiments. We all worked well together and found the experiments and activities very interesting.
We have discussed all the measures we need to stay safe. We talked about the importance of exercising and taking a rest after exercise. We also talked about the importance of having a good night's sleep and trying to avoid devices before we go to bed. We have also talked about the importance of making sure we eat a healthy balanced diet.
Being Kind to Ourselves and Others
We are going to be spending the next few weeks thinking about how to be kind to ourselves by understanding the importance of personal hygiene, eating with healthy choices, exercise, sleep, understanding our emotions and feelings, being safe and having lots of love and care. This week we have been learning all about our teeth and how important cleaning and eating is to them.
Growing- Taking Care of Things, Each Other and Ourselves
We are looking at how different things grow and what they need to make sure they grow well and thrive. We have started looking at plants, we have taken pride seeing the bulbs bloom that we planted earlier this year, we are taking care of the seeds that we planted and the plants that a Grandparent very kindly donated to us. To help with all these gardening skills we have opened our own Garden centre.
The Adventures of Supertato and his friends
We have been reading stories about Supertato and the Evil Pea. They have really captured our imaginations. We have rescued the Evil Pea from the jelly, created some veggie superhero friends for Supertato and much much more!
Hooray the Summer is Here!
Welcome back to everyone. We have started the term running, literally! We are all currently superheroes. we have made up lots of fantastic superhero characters for ourselves such as Superhedgehog - with his deadly protective spikes, Tortoise Boy- with his protective shell and his speed that matches Speedy's, Dragongirl - who can dry up any flood with her fire and has super strength and Sparkle Girl - she sprinkles cheer over all the miserable baddies and makes them happy goodies. Please take a look below to see just a snippet of all the fun and learning we have been enjoying.
