On Thursday afternoon, Mrs Allen, Mrs Rowney and six children from RD set off to visit the children of Bluebells class at Bridge School. Their school mini bus, driven by Dave, came to pick us up!

When we arrived the children were just back from their lunch so we all sat around the table to welcome each other. We sang a special song and used sign language as well.

Then it was time for the Bluebells to practise their song for their Christmas show. We sang 'Twinkle twinkle little star'.......

We had a fantastic time with the children of the Bluebells class and look forward to going back again soon. Thank you to Mark, Lyn and Miriam for making us so welcome.

Back at school now and reception have been very busy learning about 3D shapes, we have described them and built with them.

We are also getting ready for Christmas and so we had the really important job of writing to Santa to tell him how good we have been! We also asked for some presents for Christmas!! Then it was off to the post box to deliver the letters!

As part of our Tradition Tales topic we have started watching Beauty and the Beast.  In our  lessons next week we will be doing lots of work based on the story of Belle and the Beast, including writing, role play, art work, PSHE and work on shapes.

Talking of Bridges, RD had a visit from Mark Warren of Bridge School in Erdington to tell us all about their very special school and the children in his class. We are really excited as RD will forge links with Mr Warrens class and we will share our work, experiences and hopefully arrange visits with some of the children in the future. Here he is sharing his pictures with the class.

Cinderella

User Rating:  / 0

Another traditional tale and the children really enjoyed looking at still shots from the film and talking about the feelings of the Characters and the camera angles that are used to create an effect.

We then designed a house from Cinderella to the mice to say 'thank you' for helping her.

We used big boxes........
