Well Happy New Year Pine Class – different start to the New Year from what we had hoped!!!
There is a pack with different activities – you can pick and choose the bits you want to do or do it all – remember we love to see your photos and lovely art work.
While Wilson and Logan were in the Beech Room last term they heard the lovely Mrs Wilson reading the story Spinderella to some of the class during Numeracy – what a great story for counting!!! So for this we are going to base all our activities on Spinderella ….and Spiders!!!!
Who likes SPIDERS???
LOGAN is not a fan – used to be really scared, but she loves the Spinderella Story.
SHIELDS only likes tarantulas!!!!!
WILSON is the Spider Catcher – no squashing spiders on her watch -Joan the Janitor comes to get her when there is one in the school!
BOYLE is fine with them as long as they aren’t too close, but loves how they can spin their magic webs.
Spider’s Web are very impressive indeed, check out the link below.
