In Guided Reading, we have been reading George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl. We are really enjoying it. We are using it to help us with our writing - where we are going to be writing our own set of instructions. This week, we made our own class medicine. We watched it change colour and foam. It even started to show a rainbow.
We used imperative verbs such as mix, pour, stir and fill to help us write our instructions.
Year 1 shared project they made with the whole class. We spoke about the different Castles around the world.

To celebrate World Book Day, in Reception class we read one of our favourite traditional fairytales, Jack and the Beanstalk 🌱

We also had lots of fun creating our favourite story book characters using the play dough, drew pictures of ourselves and our friends wearing their character costumes and worked in teams to complete a story book scavenger hunt.
We had a fantastic Day!
