The book that we've all been using for our learning this week is the wonderful 'We're going on a bear hunt'. The children have been bear hunting around school and in the Secret Garden. The different items that the children brought in from home for Show and Tell this week certainly proved most useful!
The children have also been creating art work of the different landscapes experienced in the story using different mediums such as mud, paint and thinly cut paper. They have added to these pictures over the week and they look most impressive.
Thursday was National Poetry Day and so the children have learnt the poem 'Today I saw a little worm' by Spike Milligan, which is also a poem from the Reception Toolkit. Pandas even composed their own actions and had lots of fun performing this poem.
Next Tuesday, we will be taking a photo of the children which we will be sending to the Ipswich star for them to print in their First Class Supplement. This won't include any children who have not been given permission to appear in such publications.
For Show and Tell next week, we are asking the children to bring in a nocturnal animal. Please don't go to any special trouble, a picture or a toy animal will be sufficient, but it would be good if the children could talk briefly about the creature they have chosen.
We would also be grateful if you could send in any empty shoe boxes, as we will be needing these for our R.E. lesson.
