9.9.22 - After the sad news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II we watched a video of her life and thought about what an amazing lady she was. We also thought back to the celebrations we held for The Queen's Jubilee. We then discussed what will change from a new King to new words to The National Anthem. We used our learning on 'The Colour Monster' to talk about how we felt. We then used our learning in Creative Thursday to draw and paint portratis of The Queen to go on the school fence as a mark of respect.

08.09.22. In creative Thursday we drew our self portraits. Can you guess who is who?

7.9.22 - We read the book 'The Colour Monster' and thought about how we feel at different times and how colours can represent our feelings. We drew and painted our own colour monsters. In our first 'Welly Wednesday' of the year we then went out to the woodland area and made emotion faces from natural materials.

6.9.22 - We have some reading buddies who have joined us in our reading corner. They like nothing more than to be read too.

5.9.22 - On our first morning back we played 'Summer Holiday Bingo' where we had to walk around the room and find the name of our friends to go in each box on our bingo boards. Categories included someone who had lost a tooth, been on an aeroplane and baked cakes. It gave us a good opportunity to talk to each other to find out what everyone had been up to over the summer.
