Thistle class have been reading the story of Elmer by David Mckee and we have been thinking about what makes us special, just as Elmer was special because he was so many different colours. This is what the children said:
Yesterday Thistle and Clover class had a fantastic day visiting Lydiard Park. Not only did the children get to experience what life was like in Victorian times, but they were also able to dress up in traditional costume and play with Victorian toys. What fun! Here are some photos of Thistle class, kindly taken by Mrs Williams. Enjoy.
Today in school we have been enjoying a huge range of mathematical activities as part of our whole school Maths Day. Every class took part and classes were filled with everything from skittles to a science and maths cross curricular activity in Orchid class counting taste buds! There really was something for everyone and the children had a fantastic time.
Here are some photos of our lovely day.
This morning Thistle and Clover class have been enjoying some drama during their learning time. Faye visited us to work with both classes and a huge amount of fun was had by everyone as they pretended to be a variety of characters, exploring their creative skills.
Here are some photos of the children having a fantastic time. Do please ask them what they were enjoying!:
Today we have been learning all about our new topic The Magic Toymaker. We all brought in a toy that was special to us and imagined what would happen to them after we had gone to sleep at night. Her ewe all are describing our magic toys.
This week we have loved making frozen fruit lollies in class with real fruit. Today we wrote instructions for making them and we even got to try them. We then went into the radio studio to record what we thought they tasted like. It was great fun!
This week in Thistle Class we have been enjoying reading ‘Little Rabbit Foo Foo’ by the brilliant Michael Rosen and he was even kind enough to take time to reply to our tweet!

Not only have we loved listening to the story, but we have also had so much fun retelling the story, acting it out on our school field and here we are creating our own video of the story. We hope you enjoy it.
The beautiful flowers turn brown and die.
The giant, green bushes turn brown, yellow and orange.
The round leaves fall off the trees in the Autumn wind.
Brown, smooth, hard conkers in spiky green shells can prickle your hands.
On the ground crunchy leaves break when people stand on them in heavy boots.
Thistle Class had a really exciting time at Trowbridge Fire Station!
