Our role-play area has been a Christmas post office. We wrote letters to our families, put them in an envelope and placed a stamp on it. We went to the post box to send them to our homes. Keep a look out for your letters! 
Our parents joined us in our class to take part in lots of fun phonics activities. We practised reading and writing sounds and blending them together to say the words. We also enjoyed sharing our learning journeys with them too!

Visit from Father Michael

Visit from Father Michael 2

 

We had a special visit from Father Michael this week. We asked him some questions and he told us about his job in church. 

 

Some of the questions we asked were:

Is it lovely in church?

What do you do in church?

Why do you wear those clothes?

Why do we call you Father Michael?

Is your cloth green at church?

 

The children enjoyed listening to Father and learning more about him in preparation for our first visit to church.

During worship today, Buzzard class thought about the people in the world who have been hurt for practicing their faith. We prayed to God to ask him to look after all the kind people in the world and to thank him for us being free to worship however we choose.

We came into school on Monday morning to find we had some visitors. We talked about why they might be in our classroom and we think the owl babies have fallen from their nest and they have come into our class to keep warm. The children decided it would be a good idea to make them a new nest. We used twigs, leaves and straw to make new nests for the owls.
