Welcome to Thrift Class
We are looking forward to having everyone back next week. - and to start learning about Easter.
We will also be doing something for Mothers' Day.
The following week we will have "incredible eggs" - duckling eggs to hatch.
So, lots to look forward to.
Our frogs are back -we have frog spawn!
We have spent the week learning about the plant life cycle
Can you see the pollen?
We have planted sunflower seeds, runner beans, nasturtiums and pumpkins
We have also planted a pot of bird seed and apple and pear seeds from our fruit at snack time
We have planted the bottom of an onion to see if it grows, and put bits of rosemary in water to see if they grow
We learnt the golden rule "Love others as you love yourself" that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. We made friendship bracelets
World Book Day
We did loads of activities. We were doing maths from books here - "I am sorting out the Little Miss and tallying"
"I have counted all the animals and now I'm drawing a block graph"
We wrote a class story about our bean. M scribed for us.
We love books!

Mrs Bocking in a snow drift
We filled our tubs with snow, right to the top. We predicted the snow would melt into water
As it melted, the snow got smaller
Wow! All the snow had melted and turned to water - but there was MUCH less water than snow.
And the water we put in tubs outside is now ice. It must be below zero which is when water freezes.

Preparing the Collective Worship space - Candlemas is 2nd February and is when Christmas in the Church finishes so we go back to a green cloth
Collective Worship - we are all special and unique
Our people were all special and unique too
Many people, one body; many gifts, working together -our vision
We all have our own gifts but we can all work together
We need to be the best that we can be, the best person that God created us to be and we need to use our gifts to help ourselves and others
