For breakfast this morning (Friday) in The Burrow all of the children had poached eggs on toast.
For some of them this was the first time they had tried this, they all said that it was delicious and that they would have it again.
Trying new things - In The Burrow we encourage the children to "Have a go" and try out new things!
Why Elephant has a trunk.
This week we have been enjoying a variety of activities based around the book “Why elephant has a trunk”.
We read the story at the beginning of the week, the children were then able to sequence the important parts of the story, they were great “Teamwork Toucans” and helped each other out!
Junior and Olga used the puppets to act out the story to each other.
Kai, Freddie and Olga used the jungle animals to help them with their numeracy, they had to pick a card, then find the correct amount of animals to match their number.
The children thoroughly enjoyed this book, the children took part in various activities to enhance their learning . In our Literacy ,we thought about how the characters in the story were feeling , we even sequenced the story and enjoyed acting out the story in our role play area.
We even thought of lots of questions that we would ask the Tiger if we met him ! All the children in The Burrow enjoyed making tiger cup cakes, Olga said “these are awesome cakes, I love them “
We wrote invitations out for our very own tea party, and later that week we were very lucky as we had a visit from the tiger , I think he must have heard we were having a party he was
certainly very hungry as he gobbled up buns, sandwiches , a big slice of our cake which we made and washed it all down with a cup of warm tea before leaving .
We looked at Autumn poems, and used our senses to help us create our very own poem.
We collected a variety of different leafs, twigs etc to help us with writing our poem . We also wrote similes such as .
The leaf is as crunchy as a burnt piece of toast.
The children were all very motivated by our trip to see the stage show of Room on the Broom.
This was a great opportunity for the children to see the book brought to life.
This would not have been possible without the generosity of Dorking Halls who donated the tickets to us!
