Who stole our pancakes?!
This week we have had some very strange things happening in Blue Class. On Monday, Mr Wolf asked for our help to make pancakes by giving us all the ingredients. However, on Wednesday all of our ingredients were taken by someone! To find the culprit, we had to work out who had left the flour footprints. We were left different sized footprints and clues to help us find out who it might be. We then measured each of the footprints and recorded our results. As as class, we then measured the flour footprint and found out it was the gingerbread man!
This week we learnt about why Christian's celebrate Shrove Tuesday and what it means. We also had a go at making our own pancakes and even had a flipping pancake competition! We had lots of fun flipping the pancakes, but even more fun eating them.
On our first day back, we all woke up to the beautiful sight of snow! We had lots of fun playing and exploring in the snow.
This term we have looked at People in the Community. We were very lucky to get a visit from one of our Mum's who is a dentist. We had a fantastic time learning about our teeth and how we need to look after them. We learnt about how much sugar is in some drinks, even the adults were shocked about how much sugar was in some of them. We were all very lucky and were given our own toothbrush with a timer! Thank you so much for coming in, we had a great time and learnt lots!
This week we had our first secret storyteller! We were so excited when we saw one of our mummy's come in the classroom with some books to read. We were read, Bathroom Boogie and The Day Louis Got Eaten. We loved both books, but found Bathroom Boogie especially funny. Thank you for coming to visit us Secret Storyteller, we had a fantastic time!
This week we were very lucky to have a storyteller come to visit us from the English Heritage. We were told three short stories with lots of props and actions. One of the stories we were told was about Northumberland and a stone mason who wanted to be a stone. Our favourite one, was about a boy named Jack who did lots of silly things, like trying to put milk in his pocket!
This week, we had our first Reading Cafe. We listened to the story Where the Wild Things Are with our adults, we then enjoyed a story with our adults over a biscuit and some juice. We then created our our wild thing using lots of different craft items. We had a fantastic time and think it was a huge success. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Chinese New Year
The Chinese New Year is this Saturday. To celebrate this we learnt all about the story behind Chinese New Year. We learnt about the Chinese Zodiac and why each year is named after a different animal. This year is the year of the rat, can you tell your grown up why the rat came first in the race?
We also did some Chinese food tasting, everyone loved the prawn crackers and we had lots of fun eating the noodles. Have a look at some of our pictures to see all the fun we had.
This week, we continued our learning about birds by making our own bird feeders. We talked about the importance of encouraging birds into our school grounds and how we could do it. We will now put our bird feeders outside and continue watch the bird population around our school.
This term we are learning about the world around us. During outdoor learning this week we began thinking about the wildlife in our school grounds. In partners, the children were asked to spot and count the amount of birds within a set period of time. Then, in pairs they had to draw a picture of one of the birds they saw and write down the amount they counted. We are now thinking of ways to help encourage more wildlife into our school grounds. Next week we are planning to make bird feeders for our playground.
