    Elf Hunt

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This afternoon we went on a Elf hunt. We had to look for the elf that had our name on! We had a go at recognizing some of our letters in our name and had a go at pronouncing the first letter. We had to look super hard as some of our elves were very good at hiding!

    Winter Wonderland

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we made a Winter Wonderland tuff tray! The children used flour for snow and sprinkled it over the buildings and train tracks. We spoke about our own snow experiences, building snowman and throwing snowballs! We had a go at thinking of different words to describe snow! We had lots of fun and enjoyed making our own stories up using the resources.

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    In our tuff tray we have been using different shapes and materials to create our own snowman! Some of us made our own and some of us worked together. We thought about the material and what our snowman would like to keep him warm! We made his Hat, scarf, arms, buttons, eyes and a carrot for his nose!

    Room on the Broom

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    Today we read and watched 'Room on the Broom' We then had a go at making our own potions using water, soap, mud and pumpkins, mixing it all up together using our magic words. Some of us used Broom sticks to re-enact their favorite part of the story.... "Whoosh they were gone"!!

    Magic Wands

    Posted by Mrs L Jesters
    This week we are looking at the story 'Room on the Broom'. We decided to make our very own magic wands using the perfect stick that we found down in the woods. Once we found them we then used stars, glitter and ribbon to decorate. We each had a go at thinking of our own spells using our brand new wands!
