Where is the Big Bad Wolf?
The children have been trying to find the Big Bad Wolf. Last week they put up wanted posters around school so that the other children could help them. On Friday they went on a hunt around school to find him. Children found all kinds of clues in different classrooms. Then in year 4 they found the Big Bad Wolf! The children brought him back to their classroom and put him into a cage.
Take a look at the photographs!
Friday 1st March
Today we observed our cress seeds. They have started to open and grow. We can see green bits starting to come out of the seed. We gave them some more water and are looking forward to see what they look like on Monday.

On Tuesday we started to look at seeds. We talked about what they might be and what we need to help them grow.
We talked about them needing sun, water and cotton wool. We put the seeds into a tray with some cotton wool and paper towels and gave them some water.
Friday 8th February
We had a fantastic day on Friday for our Bear Hunt Day. We all brought our bears, wellies and picnic blankets into school. We spent the morning making jam sandwiches and letting our teddies learn in our classroom.
We decided to leave the teddies inside while we went for lunch, however when we came back the teddies had GONE! We found a clue in the register which led us on a bear hunt around school. We ended up in the hall. The bears were waiting for us with our picnic blankets and food. We ate our sandwiches and had a dance with our bears. It was a fantastic day!

We are learning about 3D shapes. We have been making models using 3D shapes and talking about their properties. Look what we have made.
Our topic this term is Toys
We are learning all about Toys. We are reading the book 'Toys in Space' by Mini Grey.
This week we have been looking at our favourite toys and how they work. We shared our toy with the class and had the chance to explain how they work.
We watched a video of a young boy making a toy car from recycled materials. He used a plastic bottle, bottle lids, string and sticks. Throughout the term we will be making our own cars also using recycled materials.
We looked at a selection of different toys and discussed who might play with them. Are they made for a baby, a toddler or a child?
We discussed why that age group might play with them and made reference to toys we had as a baby and toddler.
We have been having great fun this week doing lots of Christmas craft activities. We also had an Elf Day. We made elf hats, elf biscuits and a real Elf came into school.
On Tuesday 27th November we went to Orford Jubilee Hub. We left school after the register and travelled by coach. We drove past some of our houses. When we arrived we started with a fun art activity using ropes, we made different animals using the ropes. After that we had we took part in a maths challenge. We used PE equipment to solve problems and find out the answers, we were very busy. After lunch we took part orienteering and a dance session all about winter, we explored using material and elastics to make different snowflake shapes. We had lots of fun.
