Spring is here and our daffodils are blooming! We took great care of them over the winter and now they are  big and strong!

Some of our grandparents came to visit us! We sang songs for them and they told us stories from when they were little boys and girls like us! Thank you to all the grandparents for a lovely morning in our classroom.

Fire Safety

The fire engine came to our school today.

Fireman Peter talked to us about being a fireman.

He told us how to be safe.

We also  watched a fire safety video today.

You can watch it here.

We are all fire safe now.

Don’t forget to check your alarm every month and make a fire plan.

We got ready for Halloween by creating bat silhouettes! We painted lovely, bright colours all around!

We learned lots about ourselves and our faces! We made different faces using shapes! We used Mr. Pop to help us remember all the different parts of our faces. We had so much fun!

Elmer is our class elephant. He is very adventurous and loves to visit our homes. We celebrated his birthday at school with Miss Farrell and Miss Clarke by making rice krispie buns! They were so much fun to make and they tasted really yummy!

Happy Birthday Elmer!

We love autumn! We went for an autumn walk and collected the fallen leaves.  We had fun playing in the leaves. We heard the crunching sounds as we walked among the leaves. We saw lots of pretty colours!
