This week was Anti Bullying week and we started by thinking about people show their feelings. We read a book called ‘Funny Face’ and created different faces using playdough and whiteboard pens. We also used the analogy of a bruised apple to explain that sometimes people can be hurt on the inside even though they appear their usual self on the outside so we should always try and use kind words.

We enjoyed exploring in the courtyard and found new ways to do things. We filled the whole bucket with stones by sliding them down the channel and made lots of noise banging the saucepans! It was very exciting to discover the frost on Friday morning.

Children in Need was a great success. We all came dressed in spots. Mr Grayson had 26 spots on his shirt. Akasya added 1 more which made 27! In Foundation we raised a total of £75!

This week started off with the children making their own fireworks and most decided that rockets were the best! They thought carefully about what words they could use to describe the sound their rockets would make and did a fantastic job of writing their own labels.

For Remembrance we watched the lovely animated film on CBBC called ‘Poppies’ and then made our own paper plate versions using handprints.

In Merit assembly we had a record number of Bookworm certificates (Please remember to record any reading you do with your child in their Reading Record)
Our handwriting is progressing nicely with our first batch of Ladder Letter certificates being awarded. Well Done everyone!

This week we prepared for Halloween and Bonfire Night. We enjoyed exploring the pumpkins and we learned how we could use our senses to describe them. We thought about what we could see, feel, smell and hear. We thought it was best not to taste them unless they were cooked! We made our own scary pumpkin faces using paper plates, a computer program on the touchscreen and chalk on the floor outside. On Wednesday afternoon we had our own firework display where we talked about how to keep safe on bonfire night.

We also used our senses again to think about how we could describe the different fireworks.

 We hope you enjoyed the Chocolate Apples and had a great Bonfire Weekend.
