Over the last few weeks we have been learning about our senses. We did a listening walk around school and heard all sorts of noises inside and outside.
Last week, we we learning about our sense of touch. We wondered if we could identify things without looking at them - just by touching them. Mrs Walton put some beans, some feathers, some jelly, some dough and some pasta in bowls and hid them inside black bags. It was fun and we got them all right!
As we have been learning about old teddies in our history lessons, we all brought our favourite teddy to school last Friday and wrote about them. It was also dressing up day! A very exciting day all round!

This half term we are learning about printmaking in art. We have already printed with junk and objects from the classroom, and we have also made a stencil from card to print with. This week, we made a printing block from dough, making interesting marks in it with various objects we found in the classroom. Then we covered it in paint and made a print. We were pleased with the results.

This week History off the Page visited school to run a toys workshop for us. This was a very exciting day full of lots of different activities. We had the chance to handle and play with many different toys from the past. Our workshop leader told us lots of interesting things about them. Then, in the afternoon, we made toys to take home - a spinner, cup and ball, a fishing game, a puppet. A big thankyou to all the parent helpers who made the day possible. Have a look at our lovely photos.
