Children are very excited for our trip to New Brighton next week but do you know where it is? We used the maps app on the iPads to locate New Brighton and learned that it is situated near Liverpool. If we travel on the M6 it will takes us just under an hour and a half to get there. We also noticed that to get to New Brighton we would have to travel in a northeasterly direction.
Today as part of our ‘Holidays’ topic, we have been learning about camping and the places in the U.K. we might go. The children have loved our camping role play area and what better way to bring it to life than actually toasting marshmallows on a real camp fire! We sang songs and our marshmallows tasted delicious! Well done to all the children who were so sensible, we’ve all had such a lovely day!
We are celebrating British culture and diversity in the week beginning 18th June. We have put together a short video that showcases some of the great aspects of British culture. How many famous faces can you recognise from the clip?
You’re in for a big surprise!! We have had another magical day! We arrived in the morning to a classroom decorated with both trees and paper vines then we decided to have a wander back into the forest. When we arrived at the forest, we could not believe our eyes!!! There were benches-ready for us to sit on- but more remarkable than that…There were tiny elf clothes on a washing line, miniscule potion bottles and heart lights!
But that’s not all!! The real magic happened when we saw at least three fairies flying around us! I am super excited to see what might happen tomorrow, though I have a feeling that this elf could be trouble!!
What an exciting day in year 3. As we were about to start reading our new book, we realised that it had gone missing. We solved clues to find our missing book ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. It was hidden in the woodland ‘where the pixies and fairies like to play fair’. When we came back to class, to our amazement, our classroom had been turned into a woodland also. Very strange!!
When we came to read our book in English, it had DISAPPEARED! In it’s place, there was only fairy dust and a strange note! We used the riddle clues to work out where we thought that it might lead and decided to explore the forest. When we first arrived at the forest, there was nothing there except an old wooden stage. After a few moments, Charlotte spotted something hidden by the trees….a parcel! We wanted to stay but we knew something was in there so we headed back to school! The strange goings on didn’t end there when we got back to class, our classroom was covered in leafy decorations! We were amazed and didn’t realise such magic could happen!
