The children had a super time yesterday for our World Book Day. They made little books of their own stories based on Eric Carle's story 'Polar Bear, Polar Bear what do you hear?' but using African animals! Well done to the children who also brought in a vegetable book character. Daniel Northover was our class winner with 'The snail and the whale'.

The children were very excited this week to recieve a class set of Boom Whackers from the Dorset Music Service this week. They have been learning how to play them and perfecting- Twinkle, twinkle, little star. In History, we have been exploring and learning about how cars have developed over the last 100 years. Meanwhile in PSHE we have made feeling plates and have used them to talk about our feelings in different situations.
