We have been really busy doing lots of fun things. Here are some of the latest activities we did. Enjoy!
Today in Squirrels we did ...... COOKING!!!!! We made
We looked at the recipe and worked out what we needed to do each step of the way. Then we measured and mixed and added and counted ... Lots of hard work!
There were 3 groups so each group flavoured their fairy cakes differently: one was raisins, one was lemon and one was chocolate.
And after cleaning up and doing a Maths activity, well ...... we just had to
We talked about the different things we play on our laptop or tablet or phones. We realised that the internet is keeping us connected. But we also know that if we see something that is wrong and makes us uncomfortable, we need to tell someone.
So in Squirrel class we discussed who we can talk to about it and the children wrote the names of the people they trust on the hand they had just drawn.
This term in literacy we have been reading:
We learnt to write letters and to address an envelope.
Our letters start with "Dear ...... "
and end with "love, from ....." (even though some of us didn't want to write "love"!)
So in class we picked someone's name and wrote a letter to that person (secretly). And last Thursday, we went to Margate post office to buy our stamps and send our letters off. The manager of the post office was very kind and let us go behind the counters. Now we are waiting for our letters. Which will come first? The ones with 1st class stamps or 2nd class stamps? The race is on!
The other week, we did some cooking. We do lots of cooking in Squirrel class.
Look at us making some
They were delicious. We had fun grating the cheese, rolling the pastry, sprinkling the cheese on half of the pastry and then folding the other half over. We flattened it, rolled it again and then cut it into sticks that we twisted. In the oven and ta-da: loads of delicious cheese straws for us to munch on the next morning!
