Well, we have reached the end of our first week in the bungalow and I have to say, the children have been amazing. They were all excited to explore their new classroom and dealt with the move better than us adults! Thank you grown-ups for making the transition so easy. As always, the children have worked hard all week. Our learning this week was about birthdays. We were even lucky enough to have a real birthday boy in class this week too. We have done lots of cake painting, colouring , cake making, candle counting and even cake eating. We have also made up lots of parties, and given pretend gifts to each other. In PE we did some dancing and learned how to play musical bumps, musical statues and coloured corners and the children were so supportive of each other. In the classroom we had a go at pin the tail on the donkey.
On Thursday afternoon we found a young hedgehog, out and about in the cold daylight. Mrs Taylor put it in a box and brought it in to show the children, then Mrs Byram took it to the Prickle Tickle Rescue Centre. We found out it was a little girl and she was too small to hibernate so she will stay at the centre until the spring, when she will be released back into the wild. (I’m so glad she has a safe, warm bed in this cold snowy weather.)
