This afternoon Canon Larkey came into Sycamore Class to help make Christingle candles for our Christingle service tomorrow morning. The children listened carefully to the instructions and all produced a wonderful Christingle orange. Ask your child about the meaning of all its components.
Today we changed our woodland visit to a Woodborough village walk. The Sycamores followed a map they were given, trying to spot landmarks as they went along. The children added a few more details to make our map even better. Great map work. Nobody got lost!
Today Sycamore Class was busy building bonfires for fairies and animals in the woods. We discussed how to be safe around fireworks and bonfires before creating some awesome poems around bonfire night. Here are some of our creations!
Fizz goes the fireworks.
Fizz, bang, pop – off they go.
Crackling is the fire,
Hot dogs and burgers.
Up into the sky they explode!
How about this one…
It smells like smoke and petrol.
It looks like a mountain of flames are dancing and wriggling.
It sounds like Christmas crackers popping.
It tastes like hot dogs and sweets, sometimes I get smoke in my mouth.
It feels like a warm cuddle or bath.
It makes me happy.
Hopefully pictures will follow… Technical issues tonight! Sorry.
