World Book Day

This term we have been learning about Heroes and people who help us. Our story focus is 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra. Unfortunately 'Evil Pea' escaped from the freezer and got up to mischief in our classroom. He taped up a carrot, drew a face on a brocolli and wrapped a cucumber in toilet roll. But we needed not fear. The badgers made their own super veggies to protect our class snack.

We have enjoyed learning and re-telling the story of Supertato.

We celebrated Chinese New year in school. We learned about how Chinese New year is celebrated, made chinese lanterns to decorate our classroom, used chopsticks to eat noodles and tasted green tea.

We have been learning about the artist, Guiseppe Arcimboldo who is famous for using fruits and vegetables to create portraits. We were inspired to make some of our own fruit faces using real fruit. The best part was we were allowed to eat the after.

Christmas Craft Stay and Play-A special thank you to all the parents who attended our Christmas craft stay and play session. The children thoroughly enjoyed having you in school to share the activities with them. We hope you had as much fun as they did.

Santa visit-We were very lucky to have Father Christmas and Mother Elf visit us at school and give us a present before Christmas day. Father Christmas was very impressed that we all remembered to say thank you when he gave us our presents.

The Inn-spectors-We looked fabulous in our inn-spector costumes for our Christmas school production.

We have made a super start to our first year at Holy Rood. We have been busy making new friends and learning the school rules and routines. We have been having lots of fun exploring our new environment. Take a look at some of the things we have been doing since starting school

We designed and made our own super vegetables to protect our school and homes from the Evil Pea. We will be using these next week to make up our own superhero stories.

We read the story, 'Supertato' in class and since then Evil Pea has been causing all sorts of mischief in school. Supertato has been kidnapped by Evil Pea so the vegetables have asked for our help. We have been busy making wanted posters, rescuing vegetables frozen in ice and making our own Super Veggies!
