Our flight to Australia!

What better to do in cold, rainy January than jet off to Australia! This was a great start to our new topic. We completed our passports and tickets and boarded the plane for Sydney, Australia! Everyone was very excited and has been very keen to learn lots of new facts about Australia.




Merry Christmas!

We had a magical morning taking our Nativity on tour. We visited The Swan nursery, Conkers and The De Lucy Care Home. The children sang a mixture of carols, rhymes and songs from our Nativity. It was a really special morning.

Merry Christmas everyone!


We started at The Swan...



Then Conkers...

Finally, De Lucy House...



















Sleeping Beauty

We had a lovely day at the theatre watching Sleeping Beauty. This is also one of our 100 Memorable Events!





The finished vehicles!

The vehicles looked fantastic. Many were complete with folding down tables, ropes, windows and number plates. Traction Man has it all!




















Posting our letters to Father Christmas

The children really enjoyed writing their letters to Father Christmas and also included lots of questions to ask Santa! Then we joined up with Rabbits class and walked to the local shop to post them. I wonder if we will receive a reply!


















Making our own wheeled cars for Traction Man!

The children have been busy learning about how wheels work and also the function of the axle and the chassis. Next they designed their own vehicle for Traction Man and worked hard to draw and label their diagram. Then it was time to make it!  Everyone was very sensible with the saws and the glue gun. I will update the blog with the finished vehicles next week.
































What great vehicles using Lego technics!



Fixing the wheels.....
