We loved reading the story of The Gingerbread Man, our favourite part was when the fox tricked him at the end! We thought about ways to help The Gingerbread Man cross the river so he didn’t get eaten. We used our spare gingerbread men that we didn’t eat and made boats, bridges and even spider webs!

Have a look at our learning stories to see what we did…

  • explain our ideas and why things happen

  • encourage children to solve simple problems at home such as what to do if they spill sand on the floor…

Investigations at Prince Edward

More surprises at my door!

A year 4 pupil was excited about showing me her writing in her topic book about the digestive system. It was very informative, well-written and very well presented. The teacher’s marking really helps to point out the positives in her writing and an area to improve on. I had no idea the small intestines were that long!

FS2 have been thinking about volcanoes. In their Floor Book they discussed all sorts. They investigated lots of things. I love the writing example and the massive model they all made. I can’t wait to see the video clip of the eruption. I then went in to class to tell them about the time I climbed a real life volcano and looked over the edge in to the crater. It was Mount Vesuvius and the class were shocked to hear that a tree was growing inside!
