Our Royal Wedding Picnic
A busy morning making cakes, sandwiches, fruit and vegetables, for our picnic.
The children watched a video of the royal engagement and saw the castle where the wedding will take place.
They helped decorate cupcakes with Harry and Megan designs and were busy helping make jam sandwiches.
We had carrots, cucumber and grapes to cut.
As a special treat we had jelly and icecream.
They also had cake design and bunting to make.
They all looked brilliant in their red, white and blue.
Stories in the dell
This Fridays weekly trip to the dell gave the children an opportunity to make up their own stories.
They were first told a story by Mrs Lawes, using props from her special box, then the children were sent to find props in the dell to use in their own stories.
The children worked in small groups and came up with some fascinating ideas.
Easter Egg Hunt
It seems a little while since the Easter Egg Hunt, but I thought it worthy of a post.
The children had a lovely time hunting for clues, some with their parents and some were helped by children in Year 6. It was a pleasure to see how our current Year 6 have matured and were very supportive of their younger peers.
What’s been happening in Ruby Class?
We have been learn about numbers this week. The children have been counting, ordering and matching number 1-10.
We have hid numerals in our recently added sand tray, so the children could dig them up and match them to a printed sheet.
Transport is still an on going theme, we have now completed making a taxi and a police truck to go with our fire engine for our wall display.
In our tuff spot we have diggers and the children can dress up in hard hats for our building site.
The big wooden blocks have been stacked to make a boat. Some of the children have enjoyed singing as they pretend to row.
Our weekly visit to the dell was to make a picnic table for the many Elves and Fairies that live there!
The children used natural materials to make plates, food and magic juice.
It was very muddy but the children enjoyed squishing around. (Sorry for the extra washing)
Paints and Pinecones
This week Ruby class had a cold but exciting session in the dell.
We had paper and paint in squeezy bottles. The children collected some sticks and then used the bottles of paint to cover large pieces of card. We also had pine cones that were rolled in paint onto paper to make patterns.
As well as our planned activity some of the children discovered that the frost was a great place to mark make. They found sticks and used them to make patterns and write letters in the frost.
