On Wednesday the children watched a story about Ash Wednesday explaining why we have Lent. We learnt about Jesus 40 nights and days in the desert and talk about what we could do during Lent. The children all made Lenten promises on leaves and we made a Lenten Tree.
This week we have been reading the book Hansel and Gretel. We talked about the characters in the story and whether they were making good or bad choices. We made our own sweet house out of a box and different sweets pictures. The children enjoyed playing with it and the characters acting out the story.
The children celebrated Shrove Tuesday. A small group of children went to the market to shop and buy the ingredients we needed. We then got to choose what we wanted on our pancakes – chocolate spread, jam, strawberry, banana or plain. We ate our pancakes. They were delicious!!!!
This week on Friday is St Valentines day. We have been very busy making our cards to the person we love. We decorated a heart using pink and red paint and we did the writing for inside the card using our name cards to help us. We also have been baking love heart biscuits which we have decorated. Hope you enjoy them!
This week we have been reading the story of The Three Billy Goats. We played in the sand and the tuff tray with the troll, bridge and goats. We have been building bridges out of different material.
In Maths, we have been exploring weight using different objects to weigh. We explored heavy and light using these objects, ranging from a big balloon to a small stone.
This week we have reading the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. We have been very busy this week making own own bears from college materials. We also made porridge and got to taste it. It was Delicious! In Maths, we were learning about size and ordering the bears according to size.
