Week Five

Forest School - Afternoon Two. Although today was wetter than yesterday, the children still had lots of fun building the fire, making delicious chocolate bananas and sheltering in the den. Not one of them complained about the rain. Thank you Mrs Kimber for your help this afternoon. Having parent helpers makes it possible to have fun sessions like this.

The children had an amazing time in Forest School learning how to make fires and finding out about fire safety. They made chocolate bananas and made the chocolate melt by placing the bananas in foil packages in the embers. While the children waited for their delicious treats to cook they built there own mini fires out of sticks (but didn't light them) and played in the mud kitchen.

In maths we have been learning about ARRAYS. The children found out what a column and what a row were and how they show repeated addition and multiplication. They had to use Shreddies to represent the stem sentence. A few were eaten en route! Another activity was to match the array picture to the number sentence. The maths table has been changed and the children have had fun making their own arrays and writing the corresponding number sentence.

What fantastic Tudor houses you have all created for your Quest homework. They were all so individual with lots of detail - how creative. Most of them have gone up in flames but a few were saved for another day.

We pretended we were the people of London, passing the water in buckets from the River Thames in a relay - it took ages! Then we set our houses alight , starting off with Thomas Farriner's Bakery on Pudding Lane.
