Happy Friday 🙂 This week we have loved learning in our outdoor classroom. We have been working together to solve problems and develop our new friendships. Look at all the fun we have had this week. We have been super busy and loved learning outside.

In Bees we have been inspired by our story 'The Little Red Hen' to bake our very own bread. We read instructions, followed the instructions and cooked the bread. Our classroom smelt beautiful all afternoon because of our amazing baking skills. We had many enthusiastic bakers wanting to help join in all aspects of baking. All the children enjoyed taking part and we hope it tasted just as delicious. Look at the photos below to see what we got up to ...

Another brilliant week in Bees if you want to keep busy this weekend have a go at finding things to represent the season Autumn. We tried to get outside to have a look this afternoon but it was a bit too wet. Here is the challenge ... 

 

 

I cannot wait to see what you add to the science area 😊

Our Story Map

Our Story Map 1

Our story for 'Talk For Writing' for this half term is 'The Little Red Hen'.

Below is a story map which we use to help the children remember how to tell the story independently. We are working towards the children being able to retell the entire story themselves. Below is the text we use which accompanies the map. If you are unsure about anything then please ask. 

The Little Red Hen

 

Once upon a time there was a little red hen who lived on a farm. Early one morning she woke up and went outside, there she found some seeds.

 

‘Who will help me plant the seeds?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me water the seeds?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me cut the corn?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me carry the corn?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me grind the corn?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me knead the dough?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me bake the bread?’ said the little red hen. ‘Not I’ said the bull, ‘Not I’ said the cat, ‘Not I’ said the rat. ‘Oh very well I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

‘Who will help me eat the bread?’ said the little red hen. ‘I will’ said the bull, ‘I will’ said the cat, ‘I will’ said the rat. ‘Oh no you won’t, I shall do it myself’ said the little red hen and so she did.

 

The End

The Hat Song

 

Miss Burke looks fine

With the hat upon her head

She's divine

That's what everybody said

What a fuss

You look marvellous

And whoosh went the wind

Whoosh went the wind

Whoosh went the wind

And blew it away

On that wild and windy day

Today in Bees we have enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl day!! It has been lots of fun! Thank You grown ups for your fantastic support with dressing up outfits the children looked fab. Today we enjoyed talking about Roald Dahl's job as an author and what an author is. Can you remember what an Author is? Then this afternoon we went on our first visit to the school library and we enjoyed looking at the books we might be able to borrow next week and we enjoyed a story. Look at some of the photos of us enjoying this special day. Next Thursday the children will be able to borrow books from our school library for you to read at home.

 

More Roald Dahl Day photos ...

What a busy week we have had in Bees. We now have nearly a full class and are looking forward to our final group of children joining us on Monday. Here are some photos of a few of the things we have been up to this week while settling in. Keep coming back to the blog to see more of our adventures.

 

All of the grown ups in Bees are SUPER PROUD of how well you have all settled in. Have a well deserved rest this weekend and see you Monday.
