” The fox snapped and took our gingerbread men to her babies” Jessie L
Thomas said a baby fox is called a cub.
The Fox gave us a letter. We had some ingredients and a recipe on how to make gingerbread men.
The fox gave us this because she wanted to say sorry for taking our gingerbread men.
Now we are going to make some gingerbread men of our own!
Mrs George visited us during our celebrations.
We looked at some real World War 2 medals.
We danced with our friends to the Top 20 hits of the 1940s.

Thank you to everyone who sent in collage resources to school to support this week’s topic.
The children have had a great time exploring a wide variety of art media; fabrics, pastels, pipe cleaners, paints, chalks, paper, pasta, lentils and much much more to create their very own Sunflower masterpiece.
Rudolph had been taking care of a special package that had arrived for the Seahorse class.
Alex read the message on the label.
glue sticks… paper…
scissors… and toy catalogues!
There were even sticker labels with our addresses on.
Who would send us a package with all these things?
We have been reading and retelling the story of the Gingerbread Man.
PC Arnold sent us a video message asking us to help him catch a fox who had eaten the Gingerbread Man. We made posters and maps and sent them to him. PC Arnold caught the fox and thanked us for his help.
There was a letter inside from the Little Old Woman, she’d baked us some more Gingerbread Men for us to eat.
We opened the parcel…but there were no Gingerbread men, only a note. It was a clue…
“I have four legs, I’m cunning and sly,
I’ve taken your treats,
Let’s play I spy!
I spy Mrs George
So off we went to find Mrs George. There were no Gingerbread men, but she did have clue number 2…
” Mrs George is busy running the school,
I can’t leave food here,
I’d be a fool!
I spy lots of books!
Clue number 3 was found in the library…
“I like to hide my food to eat later,
It’s too quiet here,
I spy Mr Maker!”
“Let’s go back to our class, we have a Mr Maker table”
So off we went back to class.
We spotted some crumbs on our way.
We found more clues that the fox had been close by.
Yum, tasty treats with our morning milk.
We didn’t want the fox coming back into school again so we made some traps.
“I’ve made a trap and put the food in so the fox will eat it”
Mollie and Dylan are keeping a look out. They are using the binoculars to search for the fox in the woods.
“We can do a trap here ‘coz the sun will shine in his eyes”
Austin drew a picture of a Gingerbread Man and put it into his trap
“the fox will try and eat it”
Amber wrote a note from the Fairy God Mother – ‘biscuits, get now from the fox.’
Mrs George was very impressed with her writing.
We had a PE expert come in to help us practice our games skills.
We learnt to travel in different ways…
We had some target practice… “Goal!!”
We practiced travelling and throwing a bean bag at a target.
Great concentration – “Keep your eyes on the bean bag”
All of the Seahorse class listened to Emma very well and tried really hard when practicing all the different skills.
Mrs Ricketts and Mrs Norish are very proud of you all 🙂
K’nex and connecting camels…
large counters and pebbles.
Can you use 3 colours to make a repeating pattern?
“It goes orange, red, green, orange, red and green and keeps on going!”
A repeating pattern crown for a Queen!
Creating the pattern and then recording the pattern.
