A fantastic (but very busy!) first week back for the Fantastic Foxes! It was great to be back and get stuck in to lots of different Roald Dahl activities this week. We also started our first class reader of the year 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We love it so far, although we're not too keen on Grandma!
After reading the first part of the story, we decided to make our very own medicines! We worked in groups to write a set of instructions and then we worked with Mrs Smith and Mr Staniland to use our instructions to create our medicines. We used lots of measuring skills when we were doing this too, including measuring out bubble bath and weighing cocoa powder! There were some very interesting results!
We celebrated Roald Dahl day by creating our very own Roald Dahl bookmarks and we also worked on an activity linked to another of Mr Stone's favourite Roald Dahl books, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. We did some 'research' and taste tested a range of chocolates before using our findings to design our very own chocolate bars. It was a delicious activity!
To end the week, we started work on our new 'Jigsaw' lessons. We got to look at no matter how different we all are, there are still lots of similarities and we have lots of things in common. We also celebrated everyone's achievements, including swimming certificates, riding bikes without stabilisers, being a great big sister and even riding on the Maelstrom at Drayton Manor!
Enjoy some photos from the week below. Well done Foxes!
