We have only half a class today, but the sun is shining so we went out and wrote some poems. We wrote some lunes and kennings to describe some of the signs of spring.
We have crammed in so much this week that it is hard to remember it all. We also were so busy that we took far fewer photos than usual.
We continued our preparation for the Christmas Fayre, 3 group organising the making tree ornaments, Santa faces and some cookies.
The children did really well under the pressure of a deadline.
The Fayre went really well too, the class selling the decorations they produced, their Christmas Calandars and other items.
These activities targeted our food preparation skills, especially measuring and kneading.
After all the fun of the fair on Thursday we had some more fun on Friday, we made fruit skewers and cooked them over the fire pit. This gave us more practise of our cooking skills, chopping and cutting. Some children practised using lives safely to cut kindling and we were all safe around the fire. We were so busy looking at what as going on we didn’t even get one photo! The class were brilliant and keeping safe and following or fire pit rules. they built, lit and fed the fire. We even managed a bit of literacy, thinking of adjective and alliteration.
During all of this we found time to practise our Christmas show, this was made very enjoyable for the staff by the excellent behaviour and enthusiasm of the whole school.
Finally playtime saw the invention of The Banton Snack Van!

What it’s about
Junior sports leader’s is a club of p5-7’s getting coached to coach the p1-4’s to be more active and have fun.
Julie from active schools came in to talk to us about how to be a Junior Sports Leader. We got booklets of how to be a junior sports leader. Julie quickly ran through session 1 of the booklet and then she teaches us some warm up games like Tig, What’s the time Mr Wolf and other games.
Now Julie went onto the main games like Ice Cube where we couldn’t be seen moving. And we obviously had to start with a warmup game which was tig and we also made our own obstacle courses. And then we tidied up and we are to do session 2 in our little booklet.
We have made a mynaturewatch camera which we are using to take pictures of the birds in the playground.
The biggies also had a bit of fun with a cheeky jackdaw:
I took some pictures on this very snowy day!
Today we found eggs out in our playground. at 8:54 before the bell went me and my friend were looking for robins but we were also looking for bugs we moved something and we found eggs. I thought they were seeds but my friend said NO THEY ARE NOT SEEDS THEY ARE EGGS!!!!!
So we got the teacher or playground helper. She came to lift the eggs up and move them into a net then we brought them into class to show our teacher then we searched up to see what eggs they where. I thought they were slug eggs and I was right they are slug or snail eggs they will hatch in two to four weeks. We put the eggs in a container so we can get a magnifying glass to look at them they are really see through we can’t find the mother yet.
