An amazing event happened in our classroom this week. A dragon left a precious egg for the children to look after! The language used and imagination that this inspired was incredible, as the children considered why the dragon had left it at our school and how we should care for it.

We have been talking about those who are less fortunate than ourselves this week in the run up to Children in Need. The children have participated in fund-raising throughout the week and our Pudsey jar was very heavy. Thank you for your support.

Since returning after half term we have been very busy. Our classroom role play became a fire station and fire engine and the children have been acting out the role of the firefighter. They have been taking on the roles very sensibly and filling out incident forms! It is so lovely seeing the children starting to write through choice in our classroom areas. Outdoors, they have been putting the water collection to good use and putting out imaginary fires!

We were extremely proud of how the children participated in our Remembrance assembly led by our Year 6 children. They wore their hand-painted poppy with pride and sat and listened carefully. They joined in with the two minute silence and are beginning to appreciate the importance of Remembrance.

What a great week we have had!

The children all enjoyed making bread rolls in the shape of hedgehogs. We hope your child shared it with you! The children also used the construction shed to make a barn for the Little Red Hen and used the guttering from the water collection to make a chute for leaves to flow down.

Have a look at our photographs in the gallery.

We can’t believe how many exciting things we have been up to since starting school.  Click here to have a look at our photographs!

We took a walk to meet Reverend Nicol at St. Luke’s Church; he was very kind and let us look around and explore the church - he even played the organ for us!

When we met our buddies for the first time, we shared a book with them in our outdoor area. They also walked to Church with us for the Harvest Service. We are looking forward to lots more activities with them too.

Through our topic about autumn, we have made windmills, retold the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’, finger printed autumn trees, made vegetable soup and created large autumn collages using the autumn treasure we collected on a walk.

We have also enjoyed our first outdoor games session, where we played on the outdoor play frame and learned a new game of ‘Flush the loo!’
