Spots, Spots and More Spots!

Today the children came to school covered in spots to raise money for ‘Children in Need.’  They looked fantastic and the classroom was very colourful and bright! I would like to thank you all for supporting the charity. In the afternoon we had a special assembly to find out the sort of causes the money we have raised as a school will go to and as part of the fun four teachers agreed to have ‘a pie in their face.’ It has been a great day as our faces show…

P.E

This week our P.E. session was led by the ‘Skillwise Team.’  There were lots of different activities set out for us to try which enabled us to develop our skills in many areas.  We also had to share with each other and work together as a team.  It was great fun and the lively music they played made us work even harder!  Skillwise will be with us for the next six weeks so more fun to look forward to.

‘Picnic Time for Teddy Bears’

Today we held our ‘teddy bears’ picnic.’   We were all very excited especially as we had been working hard preparing for it by designing tablecloths, making decorations and hats, baking biscuits and following instructions to make sandwiches.  When we went into the hall there were lots of balloon everywhere and we sat round our tablecloths with our teddies to have our party food and sing songs.  It was a great day and a fantastic end to our topic.  Tomorrow we are going to start talking about our next topic which is called ‘Will You Read Me a Story?’

Build a Bear

Today we went to ‘Build a Bear’ in Warrington to find our very own class bear.  We were very excited on the coach journey there and we couldn’t wait to get in and choose our bear.  When we had chosen our bear we filled him with stuffing then we each had a little heart which we placed inside him with all our good wishes.  We had already chosen the name ‘Teddy’ for our bear so all we had to do then was pick an outfit for him.  We then got to give him a brush and a tidy up before we brought him back to school on the bus.  Next Monday Teddy will begin to come home with us all and spend the night at our houses. He told me that he is really looking forward to it!

Teddies At School

Yesterday we brought our favourite teddy into school to show them what we get up to.  They had a great day exploring the classroom and the outdoor area and at the end of the day we gave them their invite to a ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ to be held in school on Wednesday 18 th October.  We hope are teddies are looking forward to it because we can’t wait!

Our Friendship Quilt

Today we started work on our friendship quilt.  We talked about things  that are important to us, then we drew them on the quilt.  We think that it is really special as we have all worked together to make it.

Friendship

This week we have based our work around the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers.  In the book a penguin turns up at a little boy’s house.  The boy thinks that the penguin is lost but finds out by the end of the book that he is just lonely and wants a friend.  It led us to talk about what we like to do with our friends and how we can be a good friend to others.  We are going to create a friendship blanket next week  which will be up in the classroom for the after school session on Monday 9th Oct. I hope you will come in to see it.

Bears, Bears and More Bears!

Today we walked up to St Michael’s and All Angels Church to see all the teddy bears that they had in there.  Reverend Stan told us the stories behind some of the displays and asked us if we could find his bear which was hiding somewhere in the Church.  Unfortunately we couldn’t find it but we did have a lovely time looking at the different types of bears…

Another Busy Week!

This week we read the book ‘Have You Filled a Bucket Today.’   The story goes that everyone carries around with them an invisible bucket which can be filled by others when they either say kind things to you or do kind things for you.  Furthermore when you are kind to others you fill your own bucket up too.  However if you are unkind to others then you are ‘bucket dipping’ which empties the  buckets and makes everyone sad.  Throughout the week we have been showing kindness to each other and being helpful and we have been so good at it that we have filled our metal bucket and earned ourselves a treat which we had Friday afternoon.

We have also been painting with our favourite colours to create a display in the classroom and it would be great if you could come in on Monday after school to see it.  However that’s not all we’ve been up to as the following pictures show…
