Look what arrived this morning!ย 

Mrs Gifford came in to give us a letter that came in the post. 
It was a reply from one of the neighbours to one of our letters. John and Glendale wrote to us to thank us for our letter. They said they’d be out on Thursday but had enclosed their ยฃ5 and their raffle ticket stubbs. How great is that! We were so excited. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

May Day preperations

Last week we went out to deliver our letters we had been writing to the neighbours. We wrote to them about the our May Day stall and asked if they would like to buy any raffle tickets. 

Before posting our letters we turned our classroom into a post office. We decorated our envelopes and put raffle tickets in with our letters.

After sorting out letters we set off on our delivery round. 

On our way back we learnt about road signs, pedestrian crossings, speed limits and how to make lorries honk their horns!๐Ÿ˜€

We will be going back on Thursday to see if there will be any raffle tickets waiting for us. 
We have done our bit for May Day so now it’s time for you to help aswell. We need you to sign up for a time slot to help out on our raffle stall. Our stall has great views of the dancing, will be opposite the fire engine and is usually close to the food. Miss Irwin will be asking you to sign up. The time slots are only for 15 minutes. Please help us to raise lots of money (also to beat all the other classes at raising the most money). 

A great first Sunday for the ducklingsโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฃ

The ducklings had all dried out by mid-morning. Now almost 1 day old they were ready to start exploring.

First they met George and Buddy.They were a bit scary! So they ran away.

Then they had a play in the sunshine.โ˜€๏ธThey kept eating and drinking alot. They were so hungry they even tried to have some of Stuart’s breakfast! ๐Ÿ™€

After eating they did some paperwork by helping Miss Irwin with her planning. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผThen this afternoon they went to play at Mrs Irwin’s house and met some new friends.

After a busy first day it was early to bed as its their first day at school tomorrow.

Night night. 

When creativity takes over…

Walking around the outside area this morning and all you could see was imagination taking over. 

In one area some of the children bought most of the things in the pet shop. Then created their own moveable dog house. Complete with water bowl and padding made from den making material! 

By the water tray Miss Irwin suggested squirting the water in a different direction rather than on the shrubs…

so the boys used the syringes to squirt water on the number helmets. Shouting out different numbers for their friends to squirt! A great way to practise their numbers to 20. ๐Ÿ˜€

We have also been able to feed the birds with some bird seed from our shop. We found a broken packet and decided to give it back to the birds, at first it was going into a dog bowl but then we thought about the bird feeder on the tree. Great team work. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
