On Friday we had our phonics lesson outside. We recapped some sounds and if Mrs Johanson called out our sound then we had to run around the circle and try and beat the person we were running against. It was lots of fun!
This morning Mrs Brewis brought a hand delivered letter from the Wicked Witch and a mysterious parcel into Maple Class. We were given strict instructions not to open it until we arrived at the Woodland area. The letter said we need to make a Witches Brew using some very disgusting ingredients.
The Wicked Witch has promised to change the Jolly Postman back to his jolly self. Thank you to the adults who came for the Woodland walk today.
This morning we learnt about Holi Festival which is a Hindu Festival. Each class had the opportunity to throw powder paint onto a canvas to create a lasting memory of our Festivals and Celebrations theme for Global Week.
After break we enjoyed listening to Robert’s mum tell us all about the Castella Festival in Spain. We know that team work, courage, trust and perseverance are just some of the values that you must demonstrate to take part in making the human tower. We drew pictures of ourselves as Superheros and we’re looking forward to receiving our Castella mobile to display in class.
In the afternoon we sampled some Spanish foods; prawn and chorizo paella and a Spanish omelette. Tomorrow we’re going to try some olives and Manchego cheese.
This week we are going to be learning all about festivals and celebrations in Spain for Global week and we’ll be sharing lots of work later in the week. In the meantime our letters to the Wicked Witch are almost finished and we’ll be Seesawing them very soon.
In maths this morning we were comparing numbers using < > and = symbols. We’re getting more confident with these and some of us completed a tricky reasoning question.
Yesterday we went to the woods and drew maps of the Woodland area. We’ll be adding to these over the next few weeks.
