It’s Raining, It’s Pouring………

Well, the weather wasn’t great yesterday, so we used our time wisely!

We went and ticked off another one of our ’50 things to do before we leave Greenlands’.

Here we are playing in the rain.

WOW! – Wrens fly off to Africa

The children arrived today in their holiday clothes for our flight to Africa.

They then set about writing luggage labels for their backpacks, and then filled in the necessary details on their passports, which would allow them to travel to Africa.

They then passed through security, and had their passport checked and stamped.

They then boarded the plane and took a seat.

The children then listened and followed the instructions given by the pilot.

The in-flight entertainment was then switched on, which was an African safari film, and they were served refreshments.

Let’s see what we get up to whilst we are on our holiday in Africa!

 

 

News Flash!! – Wrens get celebrity status

Wrens have worked their socks off this term creating their film ‘Zog’, for our final event.

We wanted parents/carers to come and view our film, so we wrote them an invitation. They all received popcorn on arrival, which went down really well.

The film was really well received, and got raving reviews by our audience. Here it is for you to enjoy too!

I think it’s official now!

Wrens now know the story ‘Zog’, by Julia Donaldson inside out.

We also decided to sing ‘ A Million Dreams’, as this is one of our favourite songs at the minute, but also as it’s about dreams.

We also got some great donations for our raffle as well. Here are a couple of them.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone for all their support, and generosity.

Happy Mother’s Day!

We have been busy making cards for our lovely mums, and learning to sing this song for them. They do an amazing job, and we just wanted to say… Happy Mother’s Day to them!

Shrove Tuesday – means it’s time to eat…. PANCAKES!

Wrens helped make, and obviously eat pancakes at snack time.

They had a choice of various toppings, which made them go down so well.

It also gave them an opportunity to work on those knife and fork skills too.

The children all talked about how they were going to be celebrating ‘Shrove Tuesday’ with their families too. We then went and made a special delivery, which was greatly received.

A big thumbs up for ‘Shrove Tuesday’.

 

 

Happy World Book Day 2019 – Reading is Power!

Wrens have had a great time celebrating ‘World Book Day’ today with the rest of the school.

Look at the characters we chose to dress up as…..

In the afternoon the older children in school read stories to us, and played games linked to that book. We also went to different classes to listen to staff reading stories. What a great day!

 

 

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!

Wrens have been busy making Chinese crafts, and participating in celebrations to ring in the year of the pig.

We came to school dressed in something red, as this in Chinese culture means good luck. The golden colour symbolises wealth and also happiness.

We found out that people who celebrate Chinese New Year, decorate their homes, with red and gold decorations, so here we are making Chinese lanterns and candle holders. We also made money packets, but the significance of red envelopes is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping lucky money in red envelopes is expected to bestow more happiness and blessings on the receivers. Hence, it is impolite to open a red envelope in front of the person who gives it to you.

We have also been learning how to write in Chinese too.

After all this work, we decided it was time to try some Chinese food. We sat in our restaurant, listening to lovely Chinese music, and some of us had a go at using chopsticks!

We learnt all about the Chinese Zodiac, and how the twelve animals were chosen. We then had our very own race, but we ran. We thought it was a safer option!

We all found out which Chinese Zodiac sign we were too!

We finished our celebrations off with a dragon dance. (Not Zog, we gave him a day off!!)

Happy Chinese New Year everyone, love Wrens x

 

Christmas Time at Totley Farm

Our trip to Totley farm had arrived, and we were all so excited just to be on the coach.

We went to act out the Christmas story, and as soon as we got there we were put into our costumes.

We all helped to re-tell the Christmas story, and sang some Christmas songs too.

We even got to ride on the donkey, just like Mary did.

 

We held the baby lambs, and then we went to meet Father Christmas. Exciting times!

Wow! This was our first time visiting Totley Farm, and it was fabulous! We absolutely loved it, and everyone was keen to participate. We were so confident in our new surroundings.

Merry Christmas everyone!

 

 

News Flash……… Wrens help out their local library!

Our local Librarian needed our help.

She wanted us to make some Christmas decorations, which would go on the front window of the library.

We were definitely keen to help her out.

Mrs Marriott went to have a look at the window once it had been decorated. It looks great, and we were happy to help out.

Our First Performance – Go us!

Well the day had arrived and we were so ready!

We had put lots of hard work into learning our little songs and dances, all we needed now was the confidence to perform.

We learnt songs about our bodies and performed them for our parents/carers. We were amazing!

Everyone was so proud of us. Look at us in action…
