Welcome back!

We have been so busy having fun that we had forgotten to show you what we have been doing!

We were astounded at the quantity and quality of all the different homes and houses that you brought in to start our new topic. The children had great fun showing them off, and talking about them. We talked about the features of our homes and went to see Gary’s house within the school grounds.

We also read the story of ‘The three little pigs,’ and thought of questions to ask the big, bad wolf. The wolf then came to visit our classes and we had the opportunity to ask our questions to him, (I’m not so sure that it was really the big, bad wolf!).

We have also introduced a ‘talking table’ this term where mystery objects or items will be placed on the table to encourage the children to talk about them. This week we had a coconut; the children enjoyed shaking it, holding it and smelling it. On Friday we all had the opportunity to taste the coconut.
