3.12.21 After reading the book An Angel Just Like Me we made our own angels for our Christmas tree and they look just like us!

1.12.21 ELF DAY!!

What a wonderful day for our elf to arrive. We dressed up, had a special elf breakfast, put up the Christmas tree (with help from the Little Bows), saw Father Christmas all the way in the North Pole and had a lovely surprise from Team Resilience who made us all little gifts. We wish we could do it all again!

Here is our elf and we named him Jingle Bow!

26.11.21 It was Mr Bow's Birthday and we planned and helped prepare our own celebration to wish him a very happy day. We made decorations, party hats, played games, sang 'Happy Birthday' in makaton and had some yummy cake! We also spotted a rainbow in the sky too!

18.11.21 Our INSPIRATIONAL PERSON this half term is Richard Whitehead. We watched him win Paralympic gold in 2012 and learnt how he was determined to not let his disability stop him achieving his goal. We then wanted to go and run like him and realised how tiring it is!!

18.11.21 We had our next Rainbow Day on Thursday and we read the story Monsters Love Colours. It was lots of fun and we found out that you can mix some colours together to make new colours!

Poppy Day

To introduce REMEBERANCE DAY to the children we had a go at several activities throughout the day. We started by watching the CBeebies animation (which is below) and Mr Bow told us all why we celebrate it every year and how we remember the soldiers who protect us. We had lots of fun making our own poppies, explored real WW1 helmets, learning how to march and taking part in a one minute silence.

4.11.21 We learnt about the CELEBRATION of Diwali and explored how to make RANGOLI Patterns, DIYA LAMPS and FIREWORKS.

3.11.21 We investigated different sized pumpkins and had a look at what was inside.
