Authors, Dancers and Runners!

We have been busy writing our stories this week, using our story maps to help us. Great enthusiasm from Lizzie, Isaac and Charlie, who couldn’t stop writing! We are looking forward to showing everyone in our Dinosaur Extravaganza on Monday morning.
Sadly, our dinosaur sock puppets were not a success! Our glue was not strong enough to stick to fabric, but undaunted, we made dinosaurs with moving legs using split pins. Very colourful and lots of skills to learn, especially making holes in card safely! Some of these are camouflaged in our dinosaur land, so keep looking!
Luckily we were able to spend some time outdoors this week as although it was cold, it was dry. Mr Blackburn led the hunt for potatoes down in the garden and we were amazed by the number that were there. Unfortunately they were past their best, but it was great fun.
Friday was a busy day with our Holi workshop, when we used sticks to create a celebration dance, followed straight away by our mile run and walk!
Next week is the last of our dinosaur topic work and we hope you can join us for our showing morning on Monday. However, if you cannot, come in any time next week to admire our lovely work and displays before they disappear!
