Baking money please.

Dear parents, 

We were very lucky last half term to have parents who came in to bake. We are hoping to continue baking over the next term. 

Baking is great for fine and gross motor skills, communication skills, building friendships and for just getting messy!

We are going to be asking for acontribution  towards baking this half term of £1 per child. 

This will help to buy all the ingredients we will need. 

Thank as always for your support.

Cafe Jonah

 What an enterprise we created on Friday. We made our own cafe sign, table cloths, table numbers, food and drink.   
    
    
    
    

With a little help from our buddies we opened the doors. 

   
   

We didn’t stop all day. Whilst making our cafe we learnt to work as a team, to be inventive and to work hard. 

 

Jonah’s Cafe opening soon!

Next Friday 15th July we have planned to open our Jonah Cafe for one afternoon of business. 1.30-3pm.

We are hoping our friends and family will drop by for a drink or snack for the cost of a few pennies.

We will be selling home made produce. All designed and made by us (under the watchful eyes of Miss Irwin and Miss Sherliker).
After our successful business venture at May Day we are still reeling with excitement to raise funds for our classroom and school. We are like little Alan Sugars! We have a business plan and are ready to make some cash for iPads, barbies, Lego, scooters and books. 

Please comment on this blog if you think you will be able to pop in and see us that afternoon.
Love Class Jonah.

Shrove Tuesday

Today’s learning was all about pancakes and how to make them. We learnt about how to think about writing instructions and how if we don’t give instructions properly things might not turn out how we expect! 

Miss Sherliker was our pancake chef this morning but she had switched her brain off. This meant she could only do things if we told her how to do them. We gave her instructions by writing them down with Miss Irwin’s help.

Our first instruction didn’t go quite as we expected and made us laugh out loud! We wrote ‘put the flour in the bowl’ and that’s exactly what Miss Sherliker did.  
After that we started to really think about what words we needed to use for the instructions.  
    
    After making the pancake mix we went to make the pancakes with Miss Sherliker in the kitchen.    

   
 Every morning we practise saying the timetable using words such as first, next, then , after and last. Our language skills have really helped us to write our instructions. 

   
    
 

Pirate Day!

Wow! What a day we’ve had! You won’t believe what happened!

Today was Pirate Day in class Jonah! We all came dressed as Pirates! The classroom had been transformed and Captain Irwin and Captain Kippen were talking funny!

We had cool costumes with hooks and swords, some of us had even grown beards overnight!

In the morning we did Pirate activities. We played in the Jonah Pearl, Pirate water, Pirate sand, Pirate playdoh and cleaned the Pirate chicks out. We made Pirate passports, earrings, telescopes, Pirate wedding dresses and pirate cakes! Even John the Rector came in for a spot of treasure spotting!

In the morning we realised some of our Class Jonah treasure had been stolen, we thought it might have been Captain Hook! After lunch we came back and Bobby found a map!

20130612-222352.jpg
We looked at the map and thought the treasure was in the allotment, so off we went!

It turned out it wasn’t there, so we had another look! Then we saw John and he gave us a plank to use!

20130612-222602.jpg
We then decided we should look up near the field and the trees!

But we couldn’t find it there either! Then Evie realised we’d gone past it on the path…after a long look Daniel saw a funny object hidden under leaves and branches it was a Treasure chest!

It was full of our treasure and Pirate Treasure! We took it down to the classroom to have a closer look.
In the afternoon we also played Pin the eyepatch on the Pirate and Pirate Bingo!

Then we walked the plank and ate our Pirate cakes and crisps!

We talked about our day…
Evie said the best thing was ‘everything what we did’, Jacob liked ‘the walking the plank’. Becky liked ‘finding the treasure’ and Lucas said Captain Irwin was the ‘best pirate Teacher ever!’. Captain Irwin obviously had nothing to do with writing that on the blog!! 🙂
We all had a great time! Now to go home and dream about finding more treasure.
