As our termly theme is ‘places’ the children decided we should make our role play into a campsite. We discussed what a campsite needs and how the area should look. The children then helped to make trees and set the equipment up.
Looking for signs of creatures
The children have really enjoyed looking for any signs of little creatures around the school. They used magnifiers to see if they could spot any tracks, animal homes, feathers, leaves etc.
We read the story book the ‘The Snaggetty-Boggit’ then went out into our garden area to make our own snaggetty-boggits. We used clay and molded it onto a tree to make the face. Then we looked for things we could use to make features, like feathers, twigs and leaves. It was so much fun!
Here are some of our paintings of things we may see in the woods. Some of us painted woodland animals like, squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs and others painted fantastic creatures such as the Gruffalo and Snaggety-Boggits.
Dear children, staff, parents and governors of St. Gregory’s school,
I would just like to say thank you to you all for the wonderful send off you gave me for my retirement.
I was really touched by all of the special things you did for me, especially the video of your messages, your performance of the hymn to St. Gregory, the specially made book of your drawings and messages, your fantastic singing in our Christmas carol concert, the award you set up in my name and the whole school photograph. Thank you too for your generous gifts and the beautiful cards I received and for everything else!
I don’t know how you managed to keep everything a secret. It was absolutely amazing and I will never forget you all and the love and kindness you have shown me. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a caring and outstanding school for so many years and to have had the opportunity to have taught so many children in that time.
You will always be in my thoughts and I wish you all, the best of everything for the future. I will miss you all.
Love and best wishes
Miss Carrahar x
