The Owls and Hedgehogs have been working extremely hard over the last two weeks learning all about space and the planets. We want to share this amazing learning, so Owls and Hedgehogs have gone home today with exciting new stickers on. These stickers say what we have been learning about and to ask them all about it!
Ask them about the planets and hear all the amazing facts they have learnt!
This week something strange has been happening in the Owls and Hedgehogs classroom.
On Tuesday, we came in to find lots of pants all over the floor! Then we found a letter which told us that pant loving aliens had visited! Owls and Hedgehogs wrote them letters back asking them to come and get their pants back!
On Wednesday , we came in and all the pants had gone! They had left us a message to make them some patterned pants for their friends. Owls and Hedgehogs made lots of patterned pants and hung them on the washing line.
On Thursday, we came in to find all of our pants had gone and left behind was another note. The aliens told us they had an alien creating machine and we had to make designs for some new aliens. Owls and Hedgehogs drew and wrote about their alien designs.
On Friday, we came in to find that all designs had gone but apparently our aliens did not like the food on planet Zog! Owls and Hedgehogs have worked hard to write their own recipes for the aliens to take back to their planet.
We even managed to capture them on camera!
We wonder what we will find on Monday!!!
Over the past two weeks, Owls and Hedgehogs have been learning all about Elmer the patchwork elephant. We have retold the story using Talk for Writing, investigated mixing colours, created our own mini Elmer's walking through the jungle and worked together to create an enormous patchwork Elmer. After all our hard work, we had our own Elmer celebration day today with the children wearing bright colours to look like Elmer. We had a party where we danced and played party games. Well done Owls and Hedgehogs - you have worked really hard. Have a great half term.
Owls and Hedgehogs enjoyed another fantastic reading morning with their families reading and sharing stories. We want to say a big thank you to all those families that have taken part in our reading mornings as the children love sharing books with you. We will be continuing reading mornings every Friday after half term and it would be great to for you to join us. Thank you for all your support with the children's learning this half term.
Today the Owls and Hedgehogs were delighted to welcome our families in to share our amazing learning this half term. We retold the story of Elmer and then everybody got stuck in creating mini Elmers, building houses and baking cakes in the mud kitchen. Everybody had a great time and we can't wait till the next Stay and Play next half term.
