This term the children will be looking at Fairytales. To start us off with our learning, the children had a Mad Hatters tea party! The children ate, drank juice out of tea cups and danced the afternoon away.
Today the children carried out an experiment using carnations, food colouring and water. They had to predict what would happen to the flowers, thinking about previous knowledge being taught when looking at plants and what they need to grow.
This week the children have been looking at the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’. I gave the children a question. ‘Should the Gingerbread man have spoken to the fox?’. A lot of children said yes. This brought me on to teaching the children about ‘Stranger Danger’. This was followed up by a lovely visit from PCSO Teresa Key to talk to the children about Safe Strangers and what to do if they are lost or in danger.
The children have been looking at ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ this week. We started off by looking at features of a castle and then went on to design and make our own castles. The children have really thought hard about including all the features that a castle has. Such as a drawbridge, battlement and arrow slits.
The children came into school today to find a crime had been committed! The children had to look at the clues to investigate and crack the case if who this person might have been!
