Following the recent break in of the Year 1 classroom, the bear was so impressed with the children's map reading skills he wanted to see it again. He hid himself in the school grounds and left a map with directions on how to find him. The class read and followed the map superbly and were able to find the bear along with some sweet treats along the way. He was found in Forest School with the class text waiting for story time whilst the children gobbled down their sweet haul.
Roald Dahl Day - Friday 11th September
We celebrated Roald Dahl Day this year by having a full focus day around our current author focus book Fantastic Mr Fox. From counting the number of food items Mr Fox stole from the farmers in maths, creating dream jars filled with all types of nature items to making our own Mr Fox masks. It certainly was a fun filled day which finished with a couple of chapters of Fantastic Mr Fox.
Monday 7th September
Today we had some devastating news, our classroom was broken into over the weekend and a thief had taken our Teddy Bear. We cooperated with the police who were investigating the incident. They were able to catch the perpetrator who provided them with a map on the whereabouts of our bear. The children of Year 1 followed the maps accurately and find where the bear was hidden, making sure they safely returned it to its rightful place in the classroom.
