A wonderful first week back for the Dragonflies

We have had a lovely week back after half term 🎉

As Tuesday was pancake day we have practised our pancake flip skills with a frying pan and we even used a spatular to make a big stack of pancakes on a plate. 🥞

On Tuesday as it was pancake say we made some lovely pancakes.

We added the mixture into a big bowl, next we added some water and finally we cracked an egg and mixed it all together to make a batter.

After we decorated either big pancakes or scotch pancakes with our favourite toppings.

We had lots of toppings to choose from such as strawberries 🍓, Bananas 🍌, Oranges 🍊, Lemon 🍋, Golden syrup, chocolate chips and Cream.

They were very very yummy.

This week we also had a visit from a Chinese Dragon 🐉.

We watched the dragon do some dancing and he even came round to see us all and we got to touch his fur and stroke his face.

After we watch the Dragon dance we got to do some dancing ourselves using Chinese fans and Chinese parasols.

It was so much fun and we had to copy the dance routine from one of the Chinese dancers.

Finally we got to try on a Chinese dragon costume and dance around the hall showing of our Chinese dragon dance.

We had so much fun .😊

It’s Valentine’s Day!

We began the week with listening to the story ‘Guess How Much I Love You’, which introduced us to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. We have been busy exploring heart patterns by matching the correct halves. We have also used our counting skills by making cheerio bracelets and matching amounts to totals. We had a great time getting messy with chocolate as we made heart shaped treats and baked some special cakes for our loved ones. Towards the end of the week we had a wonderful time dancing and playing games with our friends in our class valentine’s disco. Finally we prepared and made some very special gifts to take home on Valentine’s Day, we hope you enjoy them. We would all like to wish you a very ‘HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!’

 

The Magical Animal Circus!

We have had a super week at school. We began by bringing the magical side of the circus to life through exploring and enjoying a story called ‘Jack in the Box’. We created our own magic pictures using colour changing crayons and magic water doodle mats. There has also been many magic tricks and talents performed by all from popping candy to keeping the balloon in the air. Throughout the week we have helped prepare our fruit and made some circus themed dishes including clown custard faces and circus animal pancakes. We finally completed some activities based around the animals in the circus. We listened to the story ‘Nightie Night Circus’ and create some wonderful paper plate characters, we also enjoyed playing some elephant games including ‘Elefun’ and ‘Doh Nutters’.
