This week we are reading and learning the story of Handa’s Surprise.
Today we immersed ourselves in the story by reading it, acting it out and trying the fruit from the story.
Take a look at the pictures of us acting out the story. Can you use them to tell someone at home the story? What happened to Handa on her journey? Do you think she knew where the fruit was going? Why was Handa so surprised at the end of the story?
After we had all joined in retelling the story, we had the opportunity to try the fruits from the story. What was your favourite fruit? Why? Were there any fruits that you didn’t like?
On Friday we were learning about bulbs. We watched a video explaining what bulbs are, how they grow and what we need to do to look after them.
The children were really excited to plant bulbs in our outside area that afternoon. The box was full of all different bulbs but we weren’t completely sure of which on was which. We decided that it would make for a nice surprise when they grow. We are hoping to have a planter full of bright and colourful daffodils, tulips, crocuses and hyacinths. Now we just have to be patient and wait until Spring to see the flowers grow and bloom.
1S have been settling well into the new classroom, routines and classroom. We talked about how we can stay safe, be happy and learn lots at school. We came up with 10 things we can all do to make that happen. Below you can see our classroom agreement.
Can you tell someone at home what makes you happy at school?
