As part of our World Book Day activities Class 1 were lucky enough to visit Seven Stories for a workshop called ‘Elmer and friends”.
We arrived and met the Tiger Who Came for Tea. Then we went into the Elmer gallery before going to the activity room where we built houses for Elmer’s friends and brought back the colours of the rainbow through our pictures.
After lunch we explored more before heading up to the Attic for the best storyteller we’ve ever heard!
Three stories later, it was time to get the bus back to school. The children were wonderful, so respectful to each other, staff at Seven Stories and other visitors. A great day was had by all.
“What was the favourite part of our visit?” – Mrs Hanley
“All of it!” – Adam
“(My)Packed lunch!” – Lewis
“The storyteller” – Ben
“The pictures for Elmer” – Ella
Class 1 have started the new half term with their new topic of Superheroes. We have started with the books Supertato and Ten Little Superheroes. The children used Supertato’s friends (new potatoes) to count up to 20 before Evil Pea appeared and told them to take 1 or 2 away.
We also worked in groups to design and build superhero bases and evil genius lairs. Mwah ha ha!
More Superhero work to follow as the term progresses.
Some of our gorgeous nursery children have started to look at the characters from our Oxford Reading Tree books. They have even been making their own stories up about them!
Little J’s enjoyed their first Outdoor Explorers of the year on Monday morning. Reception joined them on Tuesday afternoon. They were so curious asking lots of wonderful questions and giving their thoughts on what they found!
Reception have really enjoyed putting their learning about the two main characters from Little Red Riding Hood into action. They talked about the materials they would need and how they wanted the Big Bad Wolf to look like he was hiding behind “To scare her!” – Kurt.
Reception have started their Once Upon a Time theme with Little Red Riding Hood – lots of retelling and acting out.
Class 1 were excited to see the new safety barriers being fitted. Some of the children were able to explain why these barriers are going to be so important for us.
