The children in Class 1 are working hard in Lockdown. As part of our Winter topic, they have been thinking about what winter is like for birds and animals. Today, they have used some instructions, taken from the RSPB website, to make bird feeders to help the birds through this cold weather.
Class 2 spent a lovely morning thinking about the true meaning of Christmas and making Christingles.
We can fix it
We had a visitor in Class1 this afternoon as there was a problem with the water heater that needed fixing. Some of the children were fascinated by having a ‘fixer man’ in the room and immediately made themselves a set of tools, that were shoved into their pockets, and went round the room looking for things to fix. Then I suggested that they write me a bill for their work
– these varied quite considerably as you can see!
Class 3 enjoyed playing badminton against each other today.
Potage and Bread
What a busy Monday Class 2 have had! They prepared the vegetables to make potage which would have been eaten in 1666 and then made bread. Luckily, they didn’t start another fire, but all agreed bakers work very hard. When everything was ready the children enjoyed potage and bread. Everyone tried it and although there was mixed reaction to the potage, everyone thought the bread was delicious…and it was!
Navity Role Play
The children arrived in Class 1 this morning to find a stable and manger along with a box of costumes. They immediately started dressing up as different people from the Nativity Story that we were learning about last week. It was wonderful to hear them ‘acting’ it out and remembering the sequence of events so well. Don’t they look great!
National Santa Dash
We have been learning all about the Great Fire of London and these are Class 2’s fabulous Brain Builder creations.
