The children have loved listening to it and finding out what Clara and the Nutcracker Prince did to the evil mice and then meeting the Sugar Plum Fairy in Sweet Land.
After reading the story we spent some time learning about and having a go at ballet dancing by watching clips of The Nutcracker the ballet. It was very funny trying to copying! :)
23rd November - 27th November
SHAPE, SPACE and MEASURES WEEK
Throughout the week we have given the children lots of opportunities to explore measuring and weighing different objects, we have learnt new words to describe how big something is by reading our story Jack and the Beanstalk and we have used Mister Maker's Shapes to inspire us to make our own and use shapes in lots of different ways.
We have had lots of fun!
This week we celebrated
We spent time looking at why it is special to some people and how it is celebrated.
We made our own Rangoli patterns, Mendhi patterns, diya lamps, lanterns and
tasted some new foods.
Wednesday 11th November
With the help of the CBeebies Poppy animation below we talked about why we celebrate it every year. We do it to REMEMBER and to say THANK YOU to soldiers who are always keeping us safe.
Monday 9th November
Topic Launch Day
We introduced our new Topic of SPECIAL TIMES and SPECIAL THINGS by looking at what 'special' means and by answering the big question Will you read me a story?
Mrs Page, Mrs Straw and Miss Kelly took it in turns to share their favourite books with the children and explain why they are special to us.
On Wednesday 4th November we celebrated our whole school
We dressed in our best rainbow coloured clothes and did lots of different activities.
