We had a visit from famous children’s author Ian Billings. He read us his own version of Little Red Riding Hood, which was very exciting. Together we created a character and then we drew our own characters. We then got together and talked about them.
We had a day of science based activities. We explored, speed and how different surfaces can help speed up or slow down a car. We explored and made predictions as to which surface would be better for planting speeds on. We experimented with magnetic and non-magnetic materials and we also tested mixing colours.
Children celebrated world book day by taking part in lots of different activities. The book we celebrated was Hansel and Gretel. We dressed up as book characters, we had a story read to us by a fair godmother, built houses, did writing and subtraction based on Hansel Gretel. We finished the day with drawing and writing about what we had dressed up as.
Parents joined us for a Christmas craft afternoon. There was lots of creativitiy to be seen, we made reindeers, Christmas tree decorations, decorated a snowman, Christmas lights and made cone Santa’s and Christmas trees.
Thank you parents for joining us.
In EYFS we had a visit from the farm on wheels!
Children were told the Christmas story and saw and asked questions about the animals. They touched and stroked animals which are apart of the nativity such as, the donkey, a turkey, a rat and chickens.
‘No Pens Wednesday’
Children had a fantastic time dressing up as a word. We had some very imaginative costumes and children enjoyed their learning in many creative ways without using a pen. Some staff were put into detention after they were caught using a writing tool!
