Reception Children had fun creating their ‘Lollypop Reindeers’ for the Christmas Fair. They drew their faces and antlers, adding a touch of sparkle by putting on glitter! The children particularly enjoyed buying their own Reindeer from the stall and eating the Reindeer’s nose! The reindeers which didn’t sell were donated to the village fair on Saturday to be sold. We have enterprising young children in Ahlberg Class!
Once upon a time there were two amazing classes who were on an incredible fairy-tale journey. This past week or so Ahlbeg and Dahl classes have stopped off to meet particular characters on their way. They weren’t impressed with how Goldilocks behaved. In fact they were quite horrified that she went into the Bear’s cottage without knocking and, in their words, trashed the place. To help her see the error of her ways both classes decided that a letter of apology needed to be sent to the Bears on her behalf. So, the children busied themselves creating letters as if they were Goldilocks. They also created WANTED posters after Goldilocks ran from the cottage and disappeared into the depths of the forest. Before continuing on their journey they sequenced some of the events within the story. They have been identifying the Bears’ reactions, when they returned to the cottage ,after their walk, in speech bubbles.

NEXT STOP ….. WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! ….
It was wonderful to see all the children make an effort for Children in Need day!
We’ve continued having fun, yet working hard on the theme of Fairy-tales looking particularly at the Three Bears. Many children have made and tasted porridge. The remainder of the children will have their chance next week as we continue the theme. The children are quite the experts at finding and using adjectives. They have been writing adjectives to describe Goldilocks and today Pudsey Bear.
This week, Miss Hill led a remembrance assembly to the whole of the school. She discussed the significance of wearing poppies and we finished with a thinking poem. In singing assembly on Tuesday, Miss Cutter taught the school the song ‘Make me a channel of your peace’, again linking to remembrance day. The children really enjoyed this, as well as making a poppy wreath in class.
What a great half term lies ahead! The festive season will be upon us before we know it. Meanwhile Halloween and Bonfire Night are here! Last half term saw the children immersed in cross curricular activities around their world and their senses. This term we will be exploring stories of Long Ago, fictional and factual. More new stories will be discovered and further cross curricular work will be investigated with Class 1. We aim to end the term with a Key Stage 1 Christmas play. Watch this space ……
