Ella clearly worked hard on her food project yesterday and created this wonderful animal cafe that she has called Pawtastic Delights! I love the menu as it has Human food and Doggie food!
Harrison really embraced the food theme this week – making his own Pet Cafe menu and a lovely Italian Food project. He then took the the outdoors, camping out and cooking up an amazing feast in the fire pit.
- Can you create a healthy plate of food? You could draw the different food or create a menu. If you are a budding chef maybe you could prepare the food for someone in your house. (Always check with an adult before hand).
- What exercises have you been doing? Rhys and I have started the Couch to 5K. Could you create your own exercise video like Joe Wicks? Tell me about the places you have explored for your daily exercise?
- Could you find out how much sleep other animals get? Who sleeps the most in your house? For any of our top mathematicians, could you record how much sleep you get every night over a week? Then put it into a graph or/and find the average amount of sleep you get?

Kate Gregory has written this prayer for us all and we wanted to share it with our school community.
The world feels a strange place right now.
Our classrooms are empty and it is hard to play with our friends.
At this time, please look after my friends, my family and the people in our community who live on their own.
Help us to remember that you are always there and that one day this will pass.

Please see the link below to find out the topics Rabbit class will be covering this term.
Rabbits got into the Christmas spirit with their improvised version of A Christmas Carol. We have been studying the book in our Guided Reading sessions and today, the children each took a main role as we presented the whole story. Well done Rabbits!
Rabbits are busy learning about time, how long things take, how clocks show times in different ways and having fun with time related games. In topic, we have been learning about the different food that Victorians ate, and how that is different to our diets. The children wrote their own recipe books for Apple Dumplings, Trifle and Kedgeree – but nobody wanted to try rice, fish and fried eggs for their breakfast!
Everyone worked really hard on their Quest stories and they are now finished. The children’s writing shows great imagination.
Next week we are continuing learning about Victorian food, treats and parties and as we approach Christmas we will be learning about the origins of our own Christmas traditions. We will continue with Time as our maths topic and look at Roman Numeral clocks, digital clocks and other ways of showing time passing.
We are very excited to welcome a visitor to our school on Monday, Mr Davies is an Actor, storyteller and teacher who is coming to act as some Dickensian characters as we begin learning about Charles Dickens and his writing. The children will become journalist for the morning and will be interviewing the characters for their newspaper report. The Christmas tree is up in our Victorian Library looking very pretty indeed.
