We had a lovely morning visiting Acorn Farm. The children were so excited to see Santa and chatted about what they would like for Christmas. Then we went around the farm and had lots of fun talking to the animals. Our favourite was the goats. We ended our morning with chocolate biscuits and a play in the play area .Again our children behaved magnificently.
Our week started with a very special Baptism of our two Reception baby dolls Jerimiah and Isabella.
We have had a busy week chasing Gingerbread men .We have been thinking about talk of characters and drawing maps .On Friday we decorated our own gingerbread men and then “SNAP” they were gone.
We enjoyed the story of Grandad Pot .We rang granddad and asked if our toys could come to tea and he said yes. We made menus and invitations to our toys. Our toys had a lovely time in school playing in the garden and in our classroom.. We made them welcome and introduced them to our friends. They had a lovely party tea and went home exhausted. Mrs Seddon is not sure when they will be coming again
A big Thank you to all our families who attended our phonics and story workshop.We all had a wonderful time practising our sounds.We wrote menus and shopping lists.We had a lovely tea with tiger,and went on a sounds hunt.
Our ‘RE topic is Welcome.We talked about how Sophie welcomed the tiger in our story.We thought about all the ways we can welcome people too to our class.We made a special class prayer with all our happy faces.
Today we started a very special time called Talk for Stories. We went out to play and came in to a story land. We had to use Once upon a time and make up our very own stories. We read them to our friends.
