Well done and BIG thank you to our Reception Parents who help make some amazing outfits for our Recycle Fashion Show today!
As part of our REUSE and RECYCLE real project we held a teddy swap day . Instead of old unloved teddies ending up in the tip we brought them to school to swap. Our day ended with very happy children and very happy teddies. We are GREEN.
Congratulations to our children for our fabulous recycling posters on display in Ellergreen Sport’s Centre, Norris Green Library and Croxteth Park.

What an amazing pirate day .Learning is such fun.
We have been busy with peer critique this week .We shared our recycling posters with our friends. We told them what we liked and how we might make them better. We are fantastic at encouraging our friends.
We enjoyed our PE lesson this week trying out our new apparatus.
We worked as a team to recreate the recycling centre. We made conveyor belts which went up and down to sort the rubbish. We used magnets to pick up the cans. We made a camera to spot anything that could not be recycled and even break our machinery. It would not be complete without a teddy station for poor lost teddies that had found their way to the tip. Kirsty from the recycle centre  visited us and was amazed by our replica. We showed her how many milk cartons which we throw out every day as they can’t be recycled.
We had an amazing time today when we visited the recycling plant .We watched the giant machinery sorting out the card and the paper and cans. We had lots of questions. Our reception children were real ambassadors for our school.
We celebrated St Georges day on Monday. We made flags and talked about England. We acted out the story of St George with our knights and dragons. We made red and white flags and used our junk to make dragons .We enjoyed writing stories about St George.
We have had a very busy week with our REAL PROJECT. It started with a visit from Michael Recycle.We designed our own robots and wrote captions for our superhero.
We started our week with our REAL PROJECT question” How green are my feet?”
The children said “Our feet aren’t green .But now we have had a fabulous week recycling and looking around our neighbourhood to investigate .We looked for litter and flowers .We counted cars and buses. Already we are beginning to answer the question the question.

A lovely week in class preparing for Easter with lots of Lent activities and promises shared.

This week in our class we have enjoyed studying the author Julia Donaldson. We had lots of fun looking at her characters and story settings. Our favourite story was the Gruffalo. We had a fabulous story teller Lillie’s dad who made voices for the characters. We put together a rubric and drew and labelled our own gruffalos. Another favourite was what the ladybird heard. We came up with our own plans to steal the prize cow.

A fabulous world book day today with children dressed in their favourite characters. We sat on the hot seat and answered  questions in role introducing ourselves and our story setting. We shared our favourite books from home and enjoyed our parents joining us at the end of the day..

Oh no we had a problem today. Something happened in our classroom .There was a bus of chairs with story characters on.Someone had left banana skin. The mysterious egg disappeared and it was very messy .But we read some clues left by the visitor. We think he was a very friendly giant looking for his egg.
