On Monday we went outside and made massive bubbles. We used cones to blow. We made the mixture out of glycerine, washing up liquid,baking powder,sugar and corn flour. Then we put it into a small paddling pool. And we had lots of fun blowing bubbles.

This week is Maths Week in our school. On Monday the whole class went on a treasure hunt. We had to go round the school getting green cards and on the cards were sums and clues to find the next card. On Wednesday we went to the Maths Roadshow. We worked out the puzzles on the cards and it was fun! We have been working with our Buddies in P2T to create our own maths games and we hope lots of our parents will come into school on Friday to play them with us. Our number is 28 and our shape is a cylinder. We have been finding out facts for the number 28 and thinking about all the things we know that are cylinder shaped. Maths week has been great fun!

This week we have been learning about the Buddha . We have been learning to meditate. We meditate by crossing our legs and putting one hand on our stomach and one hand on our knee. Miss Marr read us a story while we meditated. It felt very relaxing. Meditation is supposed to clear the mind and relax the body. It worked for some of us!

Today we got a talk from Amy from the SSPCA. She talked to us about animal cruelty. She showed us images of animals and tol us that their owners had been cruel to them. We played a TopTrump game and guessed what animal it was.

Last week p4m started their Olympic artwork. We did our artwork on the different sports in the Olympics. First we drew the shapes on coloured paper, then we cut out all of our shapes, after that we glued the shapes on to black paper, then we wrote our sport onto paper, finally we wrote facts onto orange paper and we glued the black paper onto the orange paper . It was really fun!

On Friday it was our Open Morning. Lots of parents came to our class. They wrote their name in Greek and made Greek pots. They also found Greece on the map. Everybody managed to guess where Greece was located. The open morning was a fantastic success!
