This morning we all went for our road safety trip across the school crossing and up the field path. It was a great refresher on the rules and the safest way to behave. Well done everyone for being super sensible.
This afternoon we had a brilliant visit from Davina who works for the Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service . She told us about all the equipment fire-fighters have these days to help with emergencies. We compared this to Londoners at the time of the Great Fire. She brought with her the things that fire fighters wear and some of us had a chance to try things on. Davina also told us that fire fighters need to dress really quickly when the emergencies come in. We had a race to see who could get ‘suited up’ quickest.
(Thanks to Luca’s mummy for organising we had a great time.)
We have been busy thinking about air this week, and making our fluffy cloud and sparkly, colourful balloons for the Harvest Service today.
We all spoke in our big voices at the Harvest Service this morning, Mrs Blacker was very proud of us.
Yesterday we enjoyed our first Woodland walk although it was a bit of a rush. We are going to leave earlier next week and take our snack to eat in the wood while we listen to a story.
Today we brought in our special toys and shared them with each other. We spoke in sentences about them and what they mean about us. We tried to use ‘because’.
“If I lost Zebra I would feel unhappy.” Luca
“My Freddie is very soft.” Edward
“Teddy is my favourite teddy because he is good and plays with me. He has fun.” Rose
“My Piggy is my favourite because he is soft and he can do backflips.” Sophie
We thought about the things we are going to put in our own yellow bags. We drew and wrote labels to explain the items in our bags.
In maths we used dice to make up addition sums and wrote them in our books.
This afternoon we did handwriting and then we had an artistic time preparing for the harvest service next week.
Take 1 book week – We are spending all our English Lessons looking at this book The girl with the Yellow Bag.
It is a silent book with no words so we are imagining the story.
We have all taken part in the Spelling Bee too, some of us have gone through to the finals on Friday.
This afternoon we have started making our houses from the Fire of London and thinking about what we would save if our houses caught on fire. We have had all sorts of things from pet Guinea pigs to ‘Mums yummy cake!” Our Role play area has become Pudding Lane Bakery so we’ve been making delicious play dough cakes and bread.
Today we enjoyed making some burning houses pictures and we learnt a Fire of London song. We liked dressing up as Samuel Pepys and investigating the fight fighting artefacts. (sorry couldn’t rotate the pictures)
We made special books to tell the story of the events to our families.
