1L have been working very hard with their topic ‘Once upon a time’. Last week the focus was about the story ‘Hansel and Gretel’. The children went over to Calthorpe Haven to visit the witch’s house, but luckily she wasn’t there! So the children searched around her garden looking for some ingredients to make a cake. They found loads of disgusting things such as frogs’ eyes and mouldy carrots.

Later in the week the children made some cakes with the ingredients from the witch’s garden. Yum! Yum!

1S Topic

Last week we found out that a witch was living at Calthorpe Haven! Being the brave year 1S that we are, we went looking for her and found all of her nasty cake ingredients hidden around her garden. We collected smelly socks and dinosaur eggs, wiggly worms and slimy slugs.
What disgusting ingredients! Who would want a cake made from such horrible things?

We thought that some colourful fairy cakes would be much better, so we did some baking later in the week. We made yellow, red, green and blue cakes. They were delicious. We are all fantastic bakers, our cakes were so much tastier than the witch’s cake could ever be!

Today in Plan, Do and Review the children chose a theme, ‘Bears’. They made a car and a house for the bears out of mobilo. They acted out the 3 bears story in the roleplay area. Mrs Sibley brought in 3 lovely teddy bears from the Bear Factory which the children loved playing with. Some of the children played Yogi Bear on the computer, while others made bear masks. Can you guess who they are? [slideshow]
