As part of our topic we enjoyed a visit from Sergeant Duncan who talked to us about the role of a police officer, and showed us the equipment he carried as part of his job. We also got to sit in the police car and hear the siren! 
To finish our topic we invited all the parents in to watch our talk for writing performance of The Ginger Bread man and to see a gallery of the work we have created. It was a great success!

Shrove Tuesday  2

In class we learnt about why Shrove Tuesday is an important time in the Christian Calander, and we have started our Lent Challenge. 

We made pancake batter, and chose some delicious toppings to add to our pancakes. 

Magic Beans! 

As part of our topic we had some special magic beans appear in our classroom! We put the beans on the wall to observe them and they started to grow! When we came in on Monday morning a giant had visited our classroom and left giant muddy footprints, we also found some objects he had left behind. We found golden eggs, feathers, and his boots! 

 

The children were very excited and quickly got to work trying to discover where the giant had gone, some children created posters to put up, some created traps to try and trap the giant and others wrote him letters to tell him what he had left behind.
