Christmas Craft Day
Today the children took part in lots of fun Christmas activities including making a melting snowman biscuit, decorating a Christmas tree, making a Christmas card and making a Father Christmas.
We have been learning about what happened during the Great Fire of London and why so may houses burnt down. We have learned that houses in 1666 were made out of wood and straw, they were also built very close together. We went down to the woods to look at what happens when one house made out of wood and straw is set alight on a windy day just like it was on 2nd September 1666.
As part of the theme homework this term, the children could choose which activity they wanted to completed for their homework. Some of the children chose to make bread so we have been tasting each other’s delicious baking.
Tuesday 13th November
Today we had a visit from Lucy from the Life Caravan. She taught us about the human body and showed us all of the different organs in our body using a body model called Tam.
We talked about what we should do to make our bodies feel better if we are unwell. She told us about the importance of drinking water, eating healthy foods and resting.
We then talked to Harold the giraffe about his feelings and what might make people sad. We watched a short clip of Harold at a party and identified people’s feelings based on their facial expressions. Finally we discussed different things that we could do when we feel upset or angry.
Friday 9th November
At 11 o’clock today we walked to the Cenotaph in Wyke for a Remembrance Service to pay our respects to those killed or injured in conflicts around the world. We went to lay the wreaths that we had made with poppies to represent the fallen soldiers
Today we met our local police community support officer, Will. Will came into our school to talk to us about keeping safe, especially during Halloween and Bonfire Night.
