Great end to a brilliant week in Paddington Class

I am so very proud of the writing the children have produced this week, everyone worked really hard to write their own lost and found stories.  The stories have included Matilda loosing her books in a library, Paddington Bear loosing his hat on a train, a racoon looing his tail in a forest, a hedgehog who lost his spikes in a wood and a dinosaur who lost his tail on a mountain top. They were all brilliant! I am going to make them into a class book for our reading corner so that they can be enjoyed.

On Friday afternoon we had great time in the mud at Forest School.  The children made bird feeders, explored the fairy garden, made mud soups and worked as a team to make a den from branches that had been trimmed from trees around the school earlier in the week.  We worked hard to move the branches into position and used smaller twigs to weave between the larger ones to make walls for our den.  We will continue to work on our den and add to it over the next few weeks (if you are removing branches from trees in your garden and think they might add to our den please do email info@simondesenlis .org!). Once the den was safe we explored inside and enjoyed reading some books in there whilst sat on some mats which were very kindly made by a parent using old crisp packets and waste plastic, what a clever idea!

Below are some photos of some of the writing and our adventures in Forest School.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Egan
