Today we spent the afternoon in the orchard. We made a minibeast from clay and anything we could find in the orchard, we built a shelter for the minibeasts and tested to see how waterproof the shelter was. We filtered and purified water for our minibeasts and we searched for food to give them. Then we made a den for ourselves and finished with hot chocolate, popcorn and marshmellows that we cooked on the fire. It was a great afternoon!

During E-Safety Week we talked about the actions we can take if something happens or appears while we are online that upsets or worries us. In the ICT suite we practised quickly using the minimise button while browsing the internet for when we want to hide the screen quickly because something has upset or worried us. We then discussed how we would then speak to an adult we trusted to ask for help. Back in the classroom on E-Safety day we watched a video about three monsters that were upset by comments made online about their school poster. Again we discussed what the monsters could do in furture if any upsetting comments were made on posts they upload. We then created our own posters and made positive comments on each other's work. We decided that only nice, kind comments should be made online as our comments could upset others, even if we are joking.



Last week we performed our Nativity to our friends and family. We put so much effort into rehearsing our lines and singing our songs. We were very proud of ourselves and we hope you enjoyed the perfomance as much as we did.

We had a visit from a local theatre company who performed a Christmas pantomime for us in the school hall. They told the story of Christopher Nibbles saving Christmas for the residents of Dande Ville sfter they had had a power cut so Santa couldn't find his way.

The children enjoyed watching the show and some even took part.

We had a visitor who came to talk to us about keeping our teeth and gums clean and healthy. We had a special tablet which turned the plaque purple then had to brush our teeth to see just how long it would take to properly clean them. 

We had lots of fun finding out about all the sugar in foods and guessing which were healthy and unhealthy for our mouths.

When we came into school today our classroom had been visited by some naughty dinosaurs who decided to explore our room. They left behind a trail of mess and we had to try and work out what had happened!

Last week Jenny came to teach us some flamenco dance steps. We performed the dance to the rest of school in the afternoon.

We were visited by some Massai Warriors who taught us about their culture and traditions. We learnt some dance moves and heard some traditional songs.
