But it was the Naughty Bus!

But it was the Naughty Bus! 1

When we came into the classroom today it was in a terrible mess! We talked about who could have made the mess and why they would do it. It could have been aliens, ghosts, Mrs De Silva, Mrs Pike, Mrs Donaldson , a dragon, some monkeys or some bears. They might have done it because they don't like school or they were clumsy or perhaps they didn't know the rules!

'Where are you going?' Is our new topic and the children thought about where they would like to go and made a rail network to get there. It would take you to Paris, Ireland and the zoo!

We set off on our Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle walk to raise money for Save the Children but sadly we didn't find any puddles! It was too dry. We walked to Bowey Field and back and then the Pre-School joined us to walk around the school field. Some parents came too - thank you. When we got back to school we sold Peppa Pig cakes and tea.

Today Maple Class visited Orchard Park Garden Centre to start our topic, 'How Does Your Garden Grow?' We learnt about what plants need to grow, that some grow in water, some we can eat and others grow very tall. We then did some tasks to find different plants and trees so we looked all around seeing all sorts of things growing. Then we were given a drink and biscuit. We had such a fun time and we learnt lots that we can use to help us with our topic.
