Welcome to Badger Class
Our class teacher is Mrs Balfour.
Mrs Barr, Mr O'Hara and Mrs Hall work with us too.
We are the Reception class.
We celebrated Easter this half of term and for our Easter Service we performed our version of 'Pat a cake, pat a cake, bakers Man'. All the verses linked to hot cross buns. We made crosses for our backdrop and painted the word Easter. We also ate hot cross buns on the last day as we had been learning about the traditional foods we eat at Easter and what they symbolise.
During the second half of Spring Term we read 'Aliens Love Underpants'. At the end of this we also read 'Alien Tea on Planet Zum Zee."
This gave us an idea and we had our own tea party. We had to decide what food we wanted to have at the tea party. We decided on snot balls (grapes), snot sticks (cucumber sticks), flying saucers (prawn crackers), eyeballs (picnic eggs), moon rock bites (cheese and pineapple), moon cheese pizza, moon cheese sandwiches, rainbow jelly, rainbow cake and smartie cookies. We made our own table runners - exploring different types of media and we used oil pastels and water paints, we also made our own alien party hats! We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the Alien and Space theme this term.
Our class book for this half of term was Stick Man. We learnt about winter and the Arctic. We also learnt about Chinese New Year.
We read The Little Red Hen, and we decided that we would her make some bread. We mixed, kneaded and made our dough into rolls. We then put butter and jam on our rolls as a snack in the afternoon. Delicious.
We have been learning about ourselves this term. We have looked at pictures of us a babies and talked about how we have changed. We painted self portraits and painted pictures of two of our classmantes. We then labelled the paintings with body parts.
