My tie is a scarf for a cold giraffe..

Today we started our new story The Smartest Giant in Town. We read the first section where the giant walks through the local town and bumps into a giraffe. The giraffe moaned that he was cold and needed to warm up, therefore we all needed to make a tie for the giraffe to warm up his long neck!

Look at the designs we created on our ties! 👔

Handwriting superstar 🌟

Today in crew, we continued to develop our handwriting and showed we were working hard to get smart by – sitting our letters on the line, forming them from the correct starting point and ensuring our letters are of a consistent size. We then voted as a crew who had made the most progress to win the magic handwriting pen 🖊️

Leo won today, even though he voted for someone else ♥️ which also shows just how kind he is.

Hansel and Gretel drama

In today’s experience lesson we read the last part of the tale of Hansel and Gretel. Once they had gone into the house they found out it was a nasty witch who owned it. The witch kept Hansel in a cage to fatten him up to eat and made Gretel do lots of horrible jobs. We loved acting out the different parts of the end of the story. Our favourite bit was when Gretel pushed the witch into the oven and they found all of her treasure so they were rich!

We had some great acting and super listening ears and magnet eyes in the audience!

A gingerbread house in the woods?

After reading the next part of Hansel and Gretel we learnt that Hansel and Gretel came across a gingerbread house in the middle of the woods. It had icing on it and lots of sweets. We created our own gingerbread houses in mini crews and had a competition to see who was the best voted by our parents. It was sticky work but we enjoyed eating it.
