Welcome to your last week of home learning and your holiday activities! We have written you a special letter which we would like you to read with your adult first. Then you can have fun exploring your activities.
We would also like to say thank you for the wonderful gifts we received. We are very touched and grateful. It has been a privilege teaching you all this year and we are so excited that we can continue to teach you as Squirrel Class in September!
Today, the Honey Bee Bubble had their Sports Day. Unfortunately, it was too slippery to be on the field but we still had lots of fun! We did hula hoop competitions including hula hooping, spinning, rolling and stepping. We had throwing competitions as well as egg and spoon races. Finally, we ended with some dancing and musical statue competitions. Every child tried their best and showed fantastic team spirit. Well done Honey Bees!
We had a visit from the fire service to start our fire, fire topic. The fire fighters explained all about their tools and equipment before we had a turn sitting in the fire engine. We then were very excited because we got to see the hose in action and hear the siren!
Can you build a house out of flexible materials which the Big, Bad Wolf cannot blow down?
After discovering a diary entry from one of the Three Little Pigs, Bee class have been learning about different materials and their properties. Then a challenge came from the Big, Bad Wolf! He knew that he can't blow down brick houses but wanted to know whether it was possible to build a house out of flexible materials that was strong enough to stand up to the Big, Bad Wolf's huffing and puffing! Bee Class used all their problem solving, reasoning, science and DT skills and knowledge to work in teams to build houses from: plastic straws, paper straws, straw, newspaper, sticks or card. All the houses stayed standing after the Big,Bad Wolf attempted to blow them down! Well done Bee Class!
We're going on a journey...
Bee class have been discussing the ways in which each of us travels to school. We then read a book called 'The way to school' in which we saw that children around the world travel to school in many different ways including some that are fun and exciting and even some that are dangerous! Inspired by the book we made up a rhyme about journeys to school based on a well known story (see if you can guess what it is?!)
Exploring our new classroom and outdoor area!
We met our learning partners for this week and went on a treasure hunt to find out where everything is!
It was so fun meeting all our friends again! We played a friendship game altogether.
We've begun sharing our holiday diaries too!
