Today we had the power to make recycled art!
Thank you to all those parents and carers who came to help out with our creative workshop today, we couldn't have done it without you!
The children and parents looked like they were having such a good time. We have been learning all about materials and recycling linked to our story Superworm. So today we made birds and spiders from recycled material, please have a look on our trees on the trim trail and you'll see the children's amazing creations.
Our FirstTopic is...
We've Got The Power!
We have been learning all about different super heroes and their powers. We have also started to read the story Superworm by Julia Donaldson. This has inspired us to go on a bug hunt and create our very own class wormerys.

Today we have been on the Maid of the Mist boat tour at Niagara Falls. The children put on their waterproof coats, felt the force of the water moving the boat and the mist spraying over their faces. The children have learnt a little bit about the different sports they can play in Canada, we will find out more about these later in the week. We have spotted some Polar Bears and Grizzly Bears. I can't wait to see what we will do tomorrow!
Our next topic is called Around the World.

Over my Head
November the 5th
In the darkness
Every colour mixes in the sky
The children learnt this second poem and performed it as a class.
BANG! There goes another one,
Screaming as it goes.
It's getting high,
Up in the sky,
And fizzle - there she blows!
WHOOSH! Up high above the house,
Behind a trail of sparks.
Red and white,
Exploding in the dark!
What an amazing bunch of performers!
