Friday Fairytales!

Last Friday we had lots of fun retelling the story of The 3 little pigs  using puppets and masks.  We used really great wolf and pig voices! We also explored the strength of different building materials - straw, sticks and bricks!

Today we read the story about Goldilocks and the 3 bears.  We used our black hats to think about why Goldilocks was wrong in the story and  also came up with lots of words to describe changes in size.  Well done Room 6!

Next week we look forward to reading the story about the Elves and the Shoemaker!

Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...

Lesley visited today to talk to us about different types of metal that can be recycled. 

Ashley School is getting a container  for metal recycling.
In Room 6 we have already started our metal collection.
If you have scrap metal at home we would love to add it to our school bin.
