We have had such an exciting start to the new half term here in Flamingos' class! We came to school last Thursday and found a crime scene outside on the playground. We investigated the area and found some lily pads, a shirt, trousers and some clothes pegs! In addition, we had videos of witnesses to the events who explained what they had seen - it was all very strange! The children have written a newspaper article about their findings and it is rumoured that there may have been flying frogs in the area! We have had some information which suggests there may be more strange activity soon. Watch this space...
We have our outcomes afternoon this Thursday afternoon, which will include a fashion show to showcase their tie dying talents, the children performing a rainforest sound scape and a chance to look at their descriptive writing about the rainforest. As you may be aware, we have been reading 'Running Wild' as part of our topic which is about the main character being stranded in the rainforest in Indonesia following a tsunami. Sadly, there was a tsunami recently which has caused a great deal of damage in Indonesia. As part of our outcomes afternoon, we will be raising money to support those affected and we will be selling promises for your children to complete things at home, for example helping a sibling read, washing the dishes or tidying their room. These will be sold at 50p each or 3 for £1 - so if you would like to donate, please make sure you bring along some money to help this cause and to get some extra help from the children at home :-)
I am looking forward to seeing you on Thursday. However, if you need a chat at any point, please do pop in and see me at the end of the day.
