This week we were lucky enough to be visited by the author and illustrator Alexis Deacon (Beegu, Croc and Bird, I Am Henry Finch and many more). He read us several of his books and talked through his process of writing. Later we were treated to a more intimate Early Year’s session where we learned more about Beegu and how to draw some of Mr Deacon’s characters.
The children were very enthusiastic and asked some fantastic questions.
On Thursday we are looking forward to meeting and learning from poet Valerie Bloom (Hot Like Fire, Let Me Touch The Sky, Surprising Joy).
Please remember to exchange your World Book Day vouchers at participating retailers for either a free book or £1 off any book.
As part of our ‘Once Upon A Time’ topic, Nursery have been reading ‘Goldilocks And The Three Bears’, amongst other books. Following a child’s request, Nursery decided to make some honey oat biscuits!
We researched what ingredients were needed, wrote a shopping list and brought them to the Nursery.
We then followed the instructions written on a piece of paper.
We let the cookies cool down and then sat together and tried them.
They were scrumptious!
“They’re so crunchy!”
“Look at my cookie”
After making these cookies, we decided to make a book for everybody to be able to bake them in future!
Would you like to bake these yourself? Do not hesitate to borrow our book!
Our new topic this term is Let’s Get Digging so the children have been learning about where our food comes from and how it is grown.
The children have been planting seeds all week and they will be learning how to look after and care for them.
Thank you for all your kind donations of seeds, pots and other growing resources. We will be using more of them in the coming weeks.
