Funsie in a Onesie

On the 21st October we got to come to school in our onesies to raise money for Cool FM's Cash for Kids Campaign. It was a bit strange to be in class in our pyjamas but it was lots of fun! We even got a visit from Cool FM and the Cash for Kids mascot who came to see us and thank us for our fundraising efforts. We really hope we raised a lot of money for a great cause.

Early Man Workshop

On the 15th October we had a visit from the Active Learning Company who came to teach us all about Early Man and living in the Stone Age. This has been our topic this term and it was great to have lots of fun activities to do about the things we had learnt. We were able to have a look at all the tools used in the Stone Age and try to name them using only the clues we were given! We also learnt skills that were used in early times such as loom weaving, building fences and grinding wheat with stones for flour. The flour was then used to make a bread cake which we learnt how to cook using fire and stones! We also got to dress up as a person from the Stone Age which was really fun. We had a brilliant day and learnt a lot about our topic!

Fire Safety Visit

On the 12th of October we had a visit from the Fire Station. We learnt all about the main causes of fire in the home and what to do to try to prevent these from happening. We also learnt about the importance of having a good fire safety plan in the home. After all our hard work we were taken outside to see the fire engine and all the equipment. We even had a go using the hose! Needless to say we weren't very dry going back to class! We had a great day!  

Hard work!
