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.

Thistle Class had a really exciting time at Trowbridge Fire Station!
Thistle Class have been making music. They thought about their day at school and how the sound and feel of the day changed. For example, they decided that playtime was noisy and fast. They played their instruments to reflect how the day changed.

The road is yellow because the sun is reflecting on it.
The village is very old because there is lots of hay and people are wearing clothes from a long time ago.
Aeroplanes in the sky are flying and making bumpy noises.
Thistle class describe the picture in their own words:
This week in Thistle class we have continued to think about people who help us and in particular people in our school. We then went for a walk around our school and thought about where our favourite places are. Here are the brilliant new Reception children describing where they like to be in school.
