We have been growing all different things in our indoor garden. Why not have a go at growing your own grass head at home.
We had a fantastic time last week looking at the picture book Journey. We thought about how the characters were feeling, discussed how the colour of the pictures made us feel and imagined what new worlds we would like to explore.
However my favourite day was Friday when we did a bit of acting. We used our ideas to act out the places the girl could visit (Diggerland, Africa, Disneyland and CBeebies Land) and played musical instruments to create a more dramatic effect. We even sang part of a song from ‘The Greatest Showman’ to start us off.
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one’s been before
Thank you to all those people who have sent in an Ecobrick so far. Remember to try and squash as much plastic in there as you can. The harder the bottle the better the brick.
We have been learning how to write a program to make characters move on screen. For our first try at coding we have done really well.
Why not have a go at some of the other activities on 2Code on Purple Mash. Good luck.

Well done to all of you who have tried some of the Purple Mash activities at home. There are lots of fun activities to keep you busy.
This week we have been reading NOT A STICK. We have been sequencing the story, adding labels and coming up with some fantastic ideas for what the stick could be. Have a look at our display next library session.
What a fantastic week we’ve had exploring both the indoor and outdoor learning areas. The children have settled in well and I’m sure they’re ready for some more fun packed learning next week.
This week in Class 1 we have become newspaper editors!
We found out that the Queen’s knickers had gone missing!
We gathered evidence from the police and eye witnesses and we heard from the royal maid, Dilys.
We then wrote the most fantastic newspaper reports!
Well done class 1!
