Fun with Traditional Fairy Tales!

It was lovely to see all the children come into school dressed as a traditional fairy tale character when the storyteller John Kirk visited our class. The children thoroughly enjoyed retelling the story of The Enormous Turnip through drama. They also got into character and acted out the story of The Sly Fox. Following this, the children listened to the story of Little Red Riding Hood which had a focus on keeping themselves safe by not talking to strangers or people who are not known to them.

This week, we began our new RE topic on ‘Belonging’. To introduce this topic, it was lovely to have the children share with us all the different clubs and groups that they belong to.

During our Maths lessons, the children have been ordering numbers and symbol values. They have been encouraged to look at the pattern in the numbers and explain the sequence that they see.

In Science, the children have had lots of fun with Mrs Serra and Mrs Delaney. They have been experimenting with skittles and making predictions about whether an egg will float.

A big thank you for taking the time to find lots of natural resources for the children to make their homes for the fairy. Many of the children have now completed their structures and have just got to put the finishing touches on them. A very big thank you to Mrs Whatnall for joining us on Friday morning to help with this.  

Cannot quite believe we have only one week left to half term. The children have had a very busy but productive time and I look forward to meeting with you next week during parent consultations.
