Yo Ho Ho! A-Pirating we’ll go! 

The Sunflowers and Daffodils LOVED their pirate topic. They received a very special message in a bottle from ‘Captain Beastlie’ who asked them to become real pirates! They had to learn how to talk like a pirate, make their own pirate maps and walk the plank! They planned a birthday party for Captain Beastlie and collected data to find out what everybody wanted to eat. They prepared the food and gave Captain Beastlie the best birthday EVER! Take a look at what else they got up to.

Shapes are everywhere!

The Sunflowers and Daffodils have been finding 3D shapes in the outdoor learning area. I wonder if you could help them to find a sphere, cone, cube, cuboid, cylinder and square-based pyramid at home? 

They are so clever!

The Sunflowers and Daffodils are definitely in the celebrating spirit. We have been learning different ways that people celebrate bonfire night. We think making chocolate apples is the best way to celebrate. Do you agree?

Pumpkin Fun 

The children loved exploring pumpkins this week. They designed their own face and Mrs. Hall helped them to carve it. This inspired some children to write instructions about how to carve a pumpkin. They helped each other to sound out each word. Now, everyone can read their instructions if they are not sure what to do!

Run, run, as fast as you can… 

The children in the Sunflowers and Daffodils have loved learning all about ‘The Gingerbread Man’. They had a fantastic time baking their very own gingerbread men. They measured out the ingredients, and worked together to make sure the mixture was just right. Luckily, our Gingerbread men didn’t run away and the children got to eat them!
