This week has been so lovely.
We've been able to make the most of the glorious weather and used the tubes and funnels in the water outside. We made our own apparatus to explore where water flowed when it was poured into a tube.
We've been collecting sticks this week too, we had a go at putting them in size order, some of us tried to measure them with a tape measure.
The fairies haven't been around much. On Thursday we received a letter from Will Wizard. He had them captured in his tree trunk house! Fortunately, he let them go after we had made him a new cloak, crown and wand.
We were delighted to find lots of gold fairy glitter around the classroom on Friday morning, it meant the fairies were back.
This morning I was surprised to receive an email from Mrs Critchley about the fairies in FS2.
This is what she wrote and the photograph she sent;
Hello Mrs Warner and FS2,
I was very excited by your fairy doorway when I visited your classroom today. I haven't seen a fairy since I was a little girl, so I decided to visit your classroom when everyone had gone home. It was very quiet and I hid behind the easel and waited. After a short while I heard some very small voices, they were so quiet I couldn't tell what they were saying. I peeped over the easel and there was a little boy fairy appearing from behind the door, and a bigger girl fairy about to fly around the room. I put my camera on zoom and managed to get one photo, but they heard the click and disappeared in a little tiny flash.
I hope they came back after I went and left another message for you,
Isn't this an incredible thing to see? So, this is what Sam and Sally look like!
I wonder if we might see them again next week, I hope so.
We've had some lovely sunshine this week. We've spent time in the new mud kitchen making pies and buns. On Friday afternoon, FS1 and FS2 enjoyed playing together.
Have a look at the slide show and watch out for the ladybird, fun in FS1, missing numbers in the maths area, making caves in the large construction and writing sentences in the writing area.
Rhys has a fantastic attitude towards school. He's always on hand to help and loves to try out all the new activities we have in class. I really enjoy having Rhys in my class. I don't think I've ever met someone quite so determined as Jared. When Jared sets his mind to something, he doesn't stop until it's finished. What as fabulous quality to have.
