Supertato comics!

Supertato!

This week we have been introduced to the amazing, extremely funny story 'Supertato' and have loved learning all about how Supertato helps to save the vegetables from the evil peas! As part of this topic we will be mashing the evil peas, creating super hero masks and capes, writing shopping lists, creating play dough vegetables, printing with vegetables and much, much more. We will also be visiting the local Nisa shop with our shopping lists to buy vegetables so that we can make our very own vegetable soup! We hope to extend the excitement by writing comics and stories, making traps to catch the evil peas, estimating and counting peas and much more.

 

Here are some photos of what we are getting up to...

(and make sure you keep an eye out for escapeas! surprise

We were shocked to find that the Evil Pea had snuck into our classroom overnight and stuck a poor, unsuspecting carrot to the wall! We have decided that we need to work out a way to catch the Evil Pea and have had great fun making traps and prisons for him along with a safe house for the carrot to hide in. We have also enjoyed lots of other Supertato-related activities. We love Supertato!

The Evil Pea is still causing chaos! We are currently attempting to find and catch him.

We had so much fun visiting the local Nisa shop to buy some vegetables which we are going to use to make some vegetable soup. We wrote our own shopping list after reading the story Supertato and took it with us to the shop so we would remember what to buy.The children enjoyed selecting the vegetables and paying for the food. We were so sensible that the owner of the shop decided to treat us to a free slush to cool us down after our sunny walk!

Down at the bottom of the garden live the...

Elves and Fairies!

We couldn't contain our excitement when we came into school to find a tiny door near the floor in our classroom. It had a letter outside it telling us that the elves and fairies had put it there so that they can use it to sneak into our classroom after we have gone home at night and look at what we have been doing in our classroom. They left us some amazing activities and resources to explore and asked us to write some letters and mini-messages to them. We got straight to work making them and are looking forward to receiving a reply from them.

 

The fairies even did some magic on the ipads- sending information about themselves so that we could learn some new information. They have just sent us a special question box so that we can write questions and we are using books and the internet to learn more about them too!

We have thoroughly enjoyed making fairy houses (using only natural materials of course!), role playing in the 'Elves and shoemaker's shoe shop', writing letters, exploring the 'fairy small world', writing tricky words in fairy dust, reading the fairy books and much more. Have a look at the pictures of all the exciting things we have been doing...

The fairies left us a question box so that we could write some questions for them to answer! We were excited to get started and look forward to their reply!

Story Showcase!

We received a bit of a surprise when we came to school and found a mysterious hole in the floor of the play ground! Mr Leigh had cordoned the area off for our safety but we were very curious about who (or what) might have made the hole and where it might lead! We spent lots of time discussing our ideas and each came up with our own story setting for 'the bottom of the hole' and thought about who/ what we might meet and what adventures we might have there. We are enjoying lots of activities linked to the process of creating a story such as, role play, small world, puppet theatres, creating story setting trays in the creative area, creating story maps and much more with the hope of writing our fantastic stories to share with you on our 'Story showcase.' Have a look below at the mysterious 'hole' and some of the things we have been getting up to...

Eureka!

We had a fantastic day out on our trip to Eureka! Children's Museum in Halifax. We were so excitied to explore the different activities and zones within the museum, especially the sensory and global gardens, the 'All About Me' zone and the 'Living and Working Together' zone. We learnt about different jobs that people do, things that we can find in the garden and around the world, our bodies and much, much more!

Have a look at some pictures of what we got up to...

I Can Show You The World!

We are currently following our interest in all things Disney to explore the topic of 'I can show you the world.' We have been looking at the settings of various Disney classics and using them as a starting point to learn about the language, culture, food, dress, music, language etc. from different countries around the world. We are thinking about France through Beauty and the Beast, Africa through The Lion King, New Orleans through The Princess and the Frog, Arabia through Aladdin and China through Mulan. We are currently enjoying tasting food from the different countries and learning all about them and the people who live in them. We have also been comparing these places to where we live and our own cultures and family celebrations/ routines. Watch this space for photos of what we have been doing...

I Wonder...

During the Winter our topic has been 'I wonder...' and we have been challenging our brains to question things and find out about the world around us. First we had 'I wonder what would happen to Olaf the snowman in Summer?' We thought about what happens to snow/ice when it gets warm and had lots of fun trying to free Olaf from the block of ice that Elsa had frozen him inside! Then we had 'I wonder where bread comes from?' We read some books and watched a video to learn about how bread is made and then we wrote and followed instructions to make our own 'bread in a bag'- It was delicious! We have also been wondering how and why people celebrate Chinese New Year and had lots of fun tasting Chinese food, using chopsticks, learning about 'The Great Race' story, making decorations and invitations and much more. We also found out about how stories are made and had a go at making our own stories which were very entertaining!

Roald Dahl Day...

 

We had a fantastic day celebrating Roald Dahl day in our class. The children were very excited to dress up in costumes from a variety of Roald Dahl stories including Charlie and the chocolate factory, George's marvellous medicine, James and the giant peach, Matilda, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, The enormous crocodile and The Witches. We were so impressed with the effort that had gone into creating these costumes and thank you for your support- the children loved showing them off!

 

We took part in lots of fun activities linked to the Roald Dahl stories and shared some of the stories and video clips together too. Here are some photos of what we got up to...
