Wow, what a busy week we have had! Here are some photos of our Halloween fun…

On Tuesday and Wednesday, we had the author Gareth Baker visit us. We had lots of fun in his Gingerbread Man workshop!

 

We had a lovely walk to the allotment to meet Kevin. He told us all about what he grows there. We smelt some rosemary and mint; we saw strawberries, raspberries and Brussel sprouts growing; we found out about the compost bins and we fertilised the soil using chicken poo pellets!

On Friday, we enjoyed learning about Bonfire Night. We watched and listened to some fireworks and thought of exciting words to describe them such as – sparkly, glittering, whizzing, crackly. We found out why we have Bonfire Night and learnt about the Gunpowder Plot. We made some beautiful transient art firework pictures…

 

We enjoyed making some exciting potions…

 

What a busy week! We hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the fireworks.

We would like to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all the parents who have brought in toys, wellies, a stereo, slide and other resources. We are so grateful.

 

Next week, we will begin our Winter Wonderland topic. We will start by learning about penguins and the Antarctica.
