Purple Day.

As part of our Topic of Goldilocks, we completed some work based on porridge. We had a go at helping to make it, tasted hot and cold porridge and looked at the history of it linked with a local porridge maker. We also talked about how important it is to have a healthy breakfast and how porridge can be healthy along with other natural foods.

We discussed the different events that take place in the story of Goldilocks and practised putting them in order. We then illustrated this in the form of story maps.

Goldilocks did some very naughty things and is now "wanted". We decided to make some posters for our classroom.

Learning about our senses. - Each of us had the opportunity to cover our eyes and guess different kinds of food by how they tasted.

In our class, we talked about the different sounds we can hear in the classroom, at home and outside. We talked about Storm Ophelia and how we could hear the wind. We had a discussion about other weather sounds as well. Everyone had fun singing the nursery rhyme "I Hear Thunder" and we used it to complete a sequencing activity.

We enjoyed looking at photos of ourselves as babies and compared them with what we look like now. To help us think about what we needed when we were babies and how we need different things now, we had a go at sorting items into two sets labelled "then" and "now"

Using recycled materials and different kinds of glue to make our own houses.

We talked about how we are all different and can have different favourite things. Some of us had favourite stories like "Pirates Love Underpants" and "Aliens Love Underpants" - both by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. We thought we would have a go at designing and creating some pants. Look at all our patterns.

Lots of fun Maths activities
