This week in topic the children learnt about the circus. The children talked about what you might find at a circus and looked at some images. Then I read a story about a boy that went to a circus. The children made their own clowns and animals out of paper plates.

The children started learning the story called "Brown Bear what do you see?". We came up with actions as a class and practised retelling it. Then the children used their storymaps to tell the story to their partners. At the end of the lesson some children came to the front and performed the story. They were amazing!!

Today the children did outdoor learning. We looked at Andy Goldsworthy's art work online and then we tried to create similar pieces of art and sculptures outside. The children loved working as a team and being in nature.

Today we had a Religious Education lesson. We learnt about why it's important to be grateful to God for his creation. I passed the prayer bear around the circle and the children said something they are grateful that God created. I captured their ideas on the whiteboard.

In God Matters on Thursday the children learnt about how we can care for God's creation. One of the things we talked about was picking up litter. On Friday during outdoor learning we did a litter pick on the school field. The children were amazing stewards and filled two bin bags full of litter!
