We had a visit from Pudsey Bear this week

We have been learning all about our senses and how if we have 1 less the other 4 senses work a little bit more to help us in our everyday lives. We had a visit from Mrs Williams to help us learn and understand what it is like to be blind. Mrs Williams brought along her guide dog Uffa, who helps her to get around outside. We found out some very interesting information from her to help us understand a little what it is like to be blind.

We have been busy rehearsing our Nativity, A King is Born, and put on 4 amazing shows this week for all the school and parents.  Thank you to all the Mums, Dads and family members that helped us put this year's Nativity together by rehearsing lines and getting costumes ready.  Also a big thank you to all who came to watch our shows on Wednesday to support us, we couldn't have done it without you.    Merry Christmas

Spring First Half

 

This half term we are looking at the story Hansel and Gretel.  This week we have been thinking about the gingerbread house.  We have made some tasty gingerbread houses this week for other children in school to win in a raffle.  Mrs Martin let us keep 1 for class to experience what it must have been like for Hansel and Gretel in the story.  We loved it!!!!

We had lots of fun making our junk gingerbread houses from our designs and shopping lists of items needed.  It was a messy day but look at our finished products.
