Autumn Term 2

Autumn term 2


Welcome back after what we hope was a pleasant half term.


We are so excited to start this half term by reading the story "I want my hat back". Along with this, we will be reading the modern classic "The Gruffalo" along with "The Gruffalo's Child" and "Stick Man". Of course we will also be celebrating Bonfire Night and Christmas!



The Gruffalo and Co.


"A Gruffalo, whats a Gruffalo?"

"Why don't you know...?"


What a fab time we had, journeying through the deep, dark wood. First we read 'The Gruffalo' followed by 'The Gruffalo's Child'. The children have really enjoyed learning all about Gruffalos and the animals they meet in the deep, dark wood. 


As part of our Literacy work, the children wrote invitations to their friends to join them for Gruffalo crumble, roasted fox, scrambled snake or owl ice cream. We even had a go at making some of these delicious recipes in our mud kitchen! My favourite was the scrambled snake!




We had a fab halloween dress up day! The children came in all sorts of fun costumes and the day afforded us lots of role play and make believe play.

Who would've thought that a missing hat would cause such a commotion? We searched and searched and searched for the missing, red, pointy hat but we simply couldn't find it.


Eventually, we made missing posters to help the bear find his missing hat. The children did a great job drawing the hat, and describing it. Some children even managed to write the word hat on their poster and write how much money they would offer for reward.



When we didn't find the hat, some children tried designing and decorating a new hat for the bear. We think they are simply smashing!




But finally, we found the red, pointy hat had actually been stolen by a cheeky rabbit! The Bear finally got his hat back but the rabbit hasn't been seen for a while...






On an important note, I would like to draw your attention to the poster below. 



If you have any information on the whereabouts of the missing hat, please contact this bear.
