Info and Children's Work
As part of our ‘Make a Difference’ challenge we are looking at how to ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.’ We made leaflets and delivered them to houses in Farningham.
The children researched an animal, made a plan and then created a model.
We drew maps of London as we have been learning about about The Great Fire of London and Samuel Pepys.
How to make Paper Mache flowers
- Draw a flower to make a template.
- Cut around the flower template.
- Glue a button to the centre of the flower template.
- Thread florist wire through the centre of the button to make the flower stem.
- With a brush paste glue onto each petal of the flower template and add one strip of tissue paper at a time.
- Paste four layers of tissue paper on each petal to build up the colour.
- Mould into a flower shape.
- Leave to dry completely and to go hard.
We observed the trees, we decided which bark we would like to rub.
We planted cress seeds. Look what happened after 4 days!
Children in Red Fox class designed and planned math board games which they then played with Wood Mouse Class. There were some amazing games which supported the smaller children with their understanding of maths. A very successful activity for both classes!
We read the story of The Gingerbread Man, re-told it orally, re-wrote our favourite part, then we decorated our own gingerbread men…finally we ate them.
Red Fox and Wood Mouse are buddy classes. Both classes enjoyed spending time reading together.
Wood Mouse have been looking at the story of ‘Goldilocks.’ Mrs Bennett made us some yummy porridge.
We have been looking at vehicles and transport. We designed our own vehicles.
