Hello 👋 How are you doing at home?

It’s been a long time since we’ve been at school already hasn’t it? I have missed you all very much and know that this is a really difficult time being at home for so long and not being able to come to school, visit family, go out and have fun at the park or just simply go out in the car! It has been lovely to speak to your mummies and daddies and I even got to speak to some of you on the phone which really cheered me up. You have all coped with some big changes so well! Try to be good for everybody at home and hopefully we’ll be back in school soon. I’m going to post some pictures of what I’ve been doing and some of the ones you have sent to me already. Each week we’ll share some more and in between we could have some activities that you might like to do at home with help from your family. Stay safe my lovely squirrels! 🐿 🥰

‘Show Time’

After a wonderfully busy time last week for World Book Day, this week we did some craft activities related to our Show Time theme and created a display in the classroom with our funny face clowns. Thursday afternoon we watched songs from The Greatest Showman with popcorn and chocolate 😋 There was lots of dancing and singing along, especially to our favourite, This Is Me!

We also enjoyed getting back to our favourite activities such as sensory play and swimming. Hope you enjoy the photos…

Our fabulous visit to Pizza Express in Walsall

After reading The Pizza Princess story, the squirrels spent the morning at Pizza Express in Walsall, making yummy pizzas. Have a look at our pictures and you will see why Vicky thinks we definitely have some up and coming chefs ready to open their own Pizza Palace!

 

Table Cricket!

This term we are learning how to play Table Cricket in PE. Although it’s played on a table we need to be able to bowl, bat and field! It was great fun! Congratulations to our player of the week, Nathan!

A morning out to M&S Foodhall to complete our Food & Shopping topic!

Sadly Father Christmas wasn’t well so we had to reschedule our trip to see him to next week but we had a wonderful time shopping instead! As we have loved playing with our M&S Little Shop this term, Mr Lloyd took us out on the bus to go and see the real thing. We made a shopping list so that we could buy lots of lovely things for our party! We even found the real things from our Little Shop!

The Great Squirrels Class Bake Off!

We are enjoying lots of activities but a popular session is without doubt our weekly cooking session! We tried a savoury dish on Thursday…yummy Cheese Scones!

We have been learning to sign different food from the Very Hungry Caterpillar. On Saturday the Caterpillar eats lots of food including some cheese!  We can sign ‘cheese’ now! 😀
