Happy Half Term Everyone!

Storm Dudley blew that week away so fast alongside our Forest School.  As we enjoyed the final week in our Winter topic; Mrs Allen has had you rolling ice balls down your own ramps and we have been sharing a new Winter story, Snow Bears.  We have danced and made marks with chalk to a popular Maths song all about Beans and moved the dough to Nina’s favourite disco song, Rolling in the Deep by Adele.  In Maths, we have been talking about the word heavy and what this means.  You were tested on your idea of heavy when we filled up different size boxes with objects – which one was the heaviest?  The small or the big one?  We also took our learning outside as we made our own scales to stand on using only a wooden block and a plank of wood.  Today was Nina’s final day so we celebrated with chocolate/sweets for snack thanks to our Break the Rules Day, a fire in the Forest to keep us warm, doughnuts for pudding after lunch (thank you Nina!), and taste testing of Red classes own made juices this afternoon.  I am not sure about you but I am ready to burst.

A message for Nina and family – good luck Miss Madura on your new adventure.  We have enjoyed every day you have been with us for the past two years.  Your love of Sid the Snake, dancing and the weather when it finally warms up in the Spring have made us all smile.  Have a safe trip and keep in touch!

Have a lovely family week everyone!
