                 Welcome back to a new term . Hope everyone had a good half term.

    This week we have been answering what /who questions and following instructions, one of our tasks was to get our own pencil case        and find the collection of pencils from the list given !!! It took longer than we thought, but we finally did it !!

    We have looked at money and identified coins and whether they were silver or bronze.

    We did Stars Wars ( force awakens) in yoga and everyone was brilliant by taking part and listening . We went on Discovery Park

    to find leaves and sticks for our bonfire pictures on Thursday !

We watched an animation about how we got the Poppy fields and listened to the poem 'Flanders Fields. ' We made poppy biscuits in cookery looking at the weight of ingredients to weigh them out.

The icing was an experiment to get the right consistency to be thick - using only a few drops of water !!! A good attempt by everyone .
