Welcome to Pearl Class.
This half term is a very short one and we have got a lot of hard work and exciting activities to get through.
Our topic is Up, Up and Away and we are looking at different types of air transport. You can hear our favourite song here.
Wow! What a wonderful party we had in class today! Our book has been Barry the Fish with Fingers.
Today to bring the book to live we had a fish finger party like Barry. We made our own paper chain fish like Barry and made fishy party hats. We ate, fish fingers, vegetarian fish fingers, fish paste on toast, crab sticks, cheese sticks and tuna sandwiches.
We sang and danced to 2 of our favourite songs, you can listen here
Wow what a run up to Christmas we had in Pearl Class! We now count down the days until summer!
This half term our topic will be Talking Textures. We will be focusing on science, learning lots of new vocabulary and making lots of lovely crafts.
In English we will be reading two books – Room on a Broom and Barry the Fish with Fingers.
Our cookery is based on our topic and we will be experiencing lots of different textures – through our mouths!
The children have really enjoyed learning about keeping themselves safe, here is the game we played.
In cookery this half term we are making soups each week. We used pumpkins and onions from the garden to make soup this week.
Our topic is Mission to Mars and we are hoping to have a ‘real’ life spaceman coming to visit us!
We will be reading the book Elmer by David McKee
"Elmer the colourful patchwork elephant has been a childhood favourite since this first book was published in 1989. The subtle message is that it is OK to be different. Elmer’s story is full of vibrant colour and cheeky humour, and can be enjoyed by all the family."
You can see the signed version of the book at the following link http://www.signedstories.com/story-world/families-friendships/elmer
We have been listening to this piece of relaxing music and it is a big hit with the class.
