Swifts made some melting snowman biscuits.  We followed some instructions about how to make them.  Here are the instructions for anyone who might like to make them again at home.

We were very careful using our fine manipulative skills to add all the delicate parts.

Olaf arrives…

On Friday, after a very snowy morning, Bluebirds noticed a visitor sat in our Reading Corner. It was Olaf with a letter!

IMG_1012 IMG_1013 IMG_1014

It was from Queen Elsa asking her to help her and Anna build a snowman so that they could take it somewhere where it was always cold. We need to learn lots of things about cold places.

We started by talking about the signs of Winter. Olaf’s visit encouraged lots of children to write and draw.  Some children were encouraged to read. Olaf was so impressed and had lots of fantastic writing by the end of the day!

We also made melting snowman biscuits!

Queen Elsa leaves Swifts a letter.

Swifts found a soggy scarf, hat, 2 sticks, 2 eyes and 3 buttons.

 

Oh and a carrot!

We didn’t know where they had come from or how they got into our classroom.

We thought they belonged to a snowman because we could see a scarf, a wet hat, a carrot and buttons, sticks and eyes.

We checked the classroom for clues and found a letter on Olaf.

Elsa has left us challenges in the water area too.  We found a carrot frozen in ice!

We worked as a team using a 5 minute timer to remove the carrot.

Come back soon to check what else we have been doing.

Swifts Make Gingerbread Houses.

ginger bread house
Swifts got into the festive spirit by making some wonderful Christmas Gingerbread houses.
First they had to pipe icing along the edge of 3 biscuits and join the edges together to make a triangular prism shape. Next they had to wait until the icing had set, this only took a minute. Finally they added the decorations using their own ideas and a sprinkling of icing sugar to give it a snowy effect.

Our Christingle Service…

Comments Off on Our Christingle Service…

Today, the whole school visited Silsden Methodist Church for a very special Christingle Service. We really enjoyed singing one of our nativity songs. Some children from each class went to the front to collect a Chrstingle. We learnt that the orange represents the world, the red ribbon indicates the love and blood of Jesus and the dried fruits and sweets are symbols of the four seasons or the four directions on a compass. We then lit the candle, which symbolises Jesus, the light of the world and said a prayer. When we got back to school we put our Christingle next to our Christmas tree to remind us that Jesus is the light, who came into the world at Christmas.

We finished the day with lots of fun outdoor games such as obstacle course and Knight training and we also had lots of fun creative activities in the classroom. A fun day had by all!

We got straight to work and buried the tooth safe and sound. Once we had buried it, we sprinkled magic dust on top. We chanted “Magic Knight, Magic Knight, Please come in the night!”

Here we are at work….
