Autumn 2

This term in Mint Class we will be looking at different Celebrations from Around the World.  


This week we look at Halloween - We made Pumpkin soup in cookery, and then tried some, some of us weren't very keen on Pumpkin soup, so instead we played with it. We then designed washed and cut out different designs for pumpkins, which everyone enjoyed, we even got to take our Pumpkin home.  We have also done some PE in the hall Taif loved the tunnel tube.  We even had time to practice our writing skills. 

Star of the week is Harrison for trying hard with his independence skills Well Done Harrison.
