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

Collective worship

We learnt the golden rule "Love others as you love yourself" that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. We made friendship bracelets

Speed stacking

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!

everywhere is so snowy

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
