The children were given a “Celebrations” puzzle to solve today – Why do people “Remember, remember the 5th of November?”
They listened to the story about Guy Fawkes and found out why we have bonfires and fireworks on the 5th November every year.

Mrs Saddler was the teacher today because Mrs Jamieson had some development work to do with Mrs Munro!
The children listened to a story about a little girl called Danielle, who got hurt by a sparkler (see whole class reading jotter.) They dicussed safety rules and made posters to tell people how to keep safe around sparklers.

This is a very important lesson for the children. It would be great if you could find time to discuss these safety rules with your child and follow them over bonfire night.

Apologies for the lateness of the following few posts…….
Parent Council very kindly gave each class some money to spend on Golden Time Activities. To say “Well done!” for completing all the Autumn Challenges, Mrs Jamieson bought some woodland owl kits. We had great fun following the instructions and putting them together.
Thank you Parent Council!

Our final Autumn Challenge was to go and gather signs of Autumn and make a picture with the things we had gathered.

We took some bags down to the woods and gathered leaves, berries, cones and nuts. Back in the classroom, we sorted our bags and made pictures using the things we gathered.
