Yesterday The Dragons got into the Sports Relief spirit with a whole class Scootathon. We practised controlling our scooters using our feet, eyes and ears, then all joined in with team challenges and races. We thoroughly enjoyed being outside together … Continue reading →
Dragons have loved watching our baby chick visitors hatch out of their eggs and grow into fluffy little chicks. We have all been able to care for them by keeping them warm in their incubator, giving them food and water and have had the excitement of getting them out of their incubator for daily exercises. The highlight of looking after them has been having the opportunity to hold them in our hands and listen to their little cheeps.
As we are now all chick experts, it has inspired us to write non-fiction reports so as we can share our new found knowledge.
Over the next two weeks we will be learning to read, follow and give instructions. As an introduction to this work, The Dragons have been busy making jam sandwiches by following Mrs Dolton’s instructions. They learnt that instructions need to be given and followed in the correct order and that they need to start with an imperative verb so you know what needs to be done. Imperative verbs are the bossy words in an instruction such as put, spread, cut and fold.
We loved making jam sandwiches today. They were delicious. Take a look at our photos and see for yourself.
This afternoon something very strange happened in The Dragon’s classroom. We came back from lunch and discovered a large and middle sized bowl of porridge with a large and middle sized spoon abandoned on the table. When we looked a bit closer we noticed there was a trail of porridge oats across the playground floor. We followed the trail because we hoped it would help us to find out who had been in our classroom. As we followed the trail we spotted a glass slipper and a basket filled with goodies. At the end of the trail we came across an empty little bowl and spoon.
After looking at the evidence we all had different ideas about what had gone on.
Jasmine said “I think Goldilocks came in and ate the porridge because she likes porridge.”
Esme thought it might have been Cinderella because we found the clue of only one glass slipper and Cinderella lost her slipper when she ran away from the Prince’s Ball.
Olivia said “I think it could have been Little Red riding Hood because she took a basket to Grandma’s House”. Austin agreed with Olivia.
Robbie thought it might have been Baby Bear because he really likes porridge.
We have put crime scene tape around all the clues and started making posters and traps to help catch the culprit.
Who do you think has been in our classroom? Please let us know.
We enjoyed dressing up and talking about our favourite book characters during our pantomime day. This activity helped us to write a list of stories we want to read together as a class. Can you guess who we are?
We certainly have had a fantastic start to our Spring Term. with a pantomime performance of Beauty and The Beast. The children looked fantastic dressed up as their favourite fairy tale character. watching the show has inspired them to read more fairy tales and to write a new version of The Three Little Pigs. Keep a look out as we will be sharing our work with you shortly.
Something mysterious has been happening in The Dragon’s classroom. We had all been out to play when we heard an almighty crash from the classroom. After going into school to investigate, we discovered the Christmas tree in the role play area had been knocked over and decorations were strewn across the carpet. One of the Dragons then discovered a piece of paper with muddy paw prints all over it. When we took a closer look, we noticed there was a message saying “mogsblog.wordpress.com” so we decided to take a look. The blog was from a cat called Mog who had popped into our classroom to take a closer look at our sparkly Christmas tree but had unfortunately knocked it over when her tail had got caught on it. She was feeling very sorry. We decided to write back to Mog, telling her it was okay and that we had tidied up the mess.
