People Who Help Us - We dressed up as different kinds of people who help us and made up some plays. We enjoyed performing them for our class.
As part of our topic work on "People Who Help Us", we went to visit Clementsmount Farm.
Whacky Hair Day
We wrote sentences and made cardoard cut-outs of different people who help us. We used split pins so that our cardboard figures could have moving limbs.

We found out that a farmer's wife (and other wives) would have washed clothes using a washboard and some of us had a go at this. Phew...... hard work!

Making bears with moving parts.
Creating story maps of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
The boys and girls in our class felt sorry for Baby Bear because Goldilocks broke his chair and he had nowhere to sit. We decided we would try to make a new chair for him.
We had a lovely walk to St Mark's Chruch to see the Teddy Bear Bible Festival. There were lots of teddies all dressed up to show different characters and stories from the Bible. It was amazing and we had a brilliant time.
Congratulations to our monthly winners for October.
Our new topic is "Goldilocks And The Three Bears". We were sorting words to make the sentences - "Goldilocks sat on the chair" and "Look at the bears". We were also practising the letter formation needed to make the word "sat" and some children had a go at writing the sentence "Look at the bears" after they had sorted it.
Our first day in our new classroom. We were very excited.
