Today the children in Wiggins Class each made a loaf of bread. The school was filled with the most delicious smell and plenty of people strolled into the kitchen to check out where the lovely aroma was coming from. I am waiting for my invitation to one of their houses for tea so that I can taste some of the fresh bread! The children were amazed by how much their loaves grew when we left them to prove and a little confused when I explained that the yeast is alive and makes the bread rise!
Yesterday the children in Wiggins Class all sat beautifully together in the hall to have their lunch. There were conversations about Batman, being friends, Harry Potter and the new Peter Rabbit film! They also chatted about their favourite foods and drinks, which were not necessarily all the healthiest options!
Today the children practised their sewing skills in readiness for making our hand puppets later in the week. It took patience and resilience to thread the needles with many comments along the lines of “I can’t do it….yet!” The children were amazed how something that looks so easy could actually be so tricky. I was very proud of the way that they never gave up and stuck at it until they completed their practice patches.
I am looking forward to seeing their hand puppets by the end of the next week.
Well done Wiggins Class
This week the children designed and made sock puppets. We collected lots of different materials and bits and bobs along with some clean socks then designed and made some wonderful puppets. They all worked very hard to create a character and then used them to develop some speech and language skills. Some of the puppets had very weird names and voices! Lots of fun!
