Dinosaur Hunt and Dens
Class 1 has been busy going on a dinosaur hunt through their playground, across the field and into the woodland. They were also very creative when building dinosaur dens in the School's wonderful woodland enjoying the fresh air and making the most of the lovely sunshine.
This week the children were introduced to our bouldering wall with the assistance and support of their Class 5 buddies, all of whom were standing by to support them!
Woodland Learning Fun
Class 1 had a wonderful time this week when they took advantage of the spring sunshine to get some fresh air in the woodland and construct dinosaur dens.
Class 1 went on a walk around the school grounds to find signs of spring. We found lots of leaf buds and flowers including daffodils, primroses, forget-me-nots and tree blossom. We went in the school's woodland where there was great excitement when the children made mini-beast discoveries under the logs and were able to handle them!
The Gingerbread Man
Class 1 have been reading some traditional tales. After reading a few versions of The Gingerbread Man we decided to make some . The children all followed the recipe with Mrs Woolven, weighed, mixed and cut them out. When the “men” were baked and had cooled the children had fun decorating them. This time it was Class 1 who ate them not the fox! Thanks go to all the parents who came to the rescue with cutters after Miss Charman’s cutters ran away!
Class 1 made cheese straws this week. They helped weigh out the ingredients, got their hands in to rub the flour, cheese and butter together and stirred in an egg yolk. Then they rolled out the cheese pastry and cut it into strips before they were baked in the oven. The smell whilst they were cooking was delicious!
We then used the cheese straws to build a bonfire shape on the plate and added strips of pepper, carrots and chunks of tomato for the flames. Finally the class sat round their fires and tucked in!
Thank you for letting us come and visit you in your homes. We were made very welcome and had a lovely time. It was a great way to get to know you, your families and your pets!
Photos coming soon! In the meantime please pop in and see the display on the wall in the classroom.
We went on a bear hunt in the school grounds. We all took a bear with us. We went in the orchard and in the woodland. Twinkletoes was hiding in our outdoor cupboard! Look at the photos below to see us having fun!
