A very exciting day today! We walked to Northgate school to visit the 'Explorer Dome'. It introduced our new topic 'About Our World'. Russel and Jonas helped us explore the different parts of the World. We saw stars, the moon, animals from around the World, the Jungle, underwater and the Desert too. Lucy told us "It's like a giant tent. I liked the rain inside." Lily said "I liked it when the picture of the North Pole was up." Alex told us "I liked the rain because it gone on my ears." We were so excited when it was time to go home so that we could tell our parents and carers all about our new discoveries!
A group of children in Mulberry and Plum class achieved their 95% or above attendance certificates. These children were also awarded their Golden tickets! They took their Golden tickets to the office to place their names in the raffle. Unfortunately, there were no Foundation children picked this time but there's always next term! A big well done to these children.
We all really enjoyed our Christmas Party. It was such a lot of fun! We played party games which included Musical Bumps, Musical Statues, 'Don't let the balloon drop' and there was even the best dancer competition! Rebecca said "We danced all along and it was so fun." When we finished dancing we were ready to eat our party food. "It's good food." Lexi told us. We were very excited to pull our Christmas crackers. We wore our Christmas hats that we made with Miss Lock while we ate the delicious food.
Nativity time! Mulberry and Plum children all dressed as Donkey's for our 'Wriggly Nativity'. They plodded into the hall and joined in with the singing. The adults are so proud of all the children for learning the songs, singing beautifully and signing too. "We are tired Donkey's now." Jasper told us when we finished our fourth, and last performance to the parents!
It was our Christmas lunch. We enjoyed listening to the Christmas music while we ate with our friends. The adults brought us our food to the table, we didn't even have to line up! The Christmas balloons made us very excited! Alisha said "It was fun. I liked my sausage and potatoes."
Plum and Mulberry children went on a Bear Hunt. We took our teddy bears with us on our hunt for the Bear in the cave. We had to go through long wavy grass, a deep cold river, thick oozy mud, a big dark forest, a swirling whirling snowstorm and tip toed to the cave. We found the Bear! Tobie-Jai said "I liked the water, it was going splish."
As part of our Bear topic we baked Bear shaped biscuits. We talked about how important it is to wash our hands first before we started. Our hands got very dirty and it made our fingers sticky. Once the Bear biscuits were cooked we all sat down to eat them. They were delicious!
We enjoyed Gardening outdoors. We planted the Sunflower seeds and talked about what three things were needed to help the Sunflower grow. Soil, light and water.
We enjoy choosing our learning indoors and outdoors. We like to be independent and creative. Jack told me "I am matching up the letters and patterns." Alisha used the chalk to draw Humpty Dumpty on the playground, she said "Humpty Dumpty is round."
