It is half term next week- so there will be no blog and no book swap.
This week is Mental Health Awareness week - I hope you have had a go at some of the well being tasks and while it has been great to talk about and think about mental health this week - remember if you ever need to talk to someone about how you are feeling we are all here for you!
Well being task
I hope you have enjoyed reading The Tin Forest this term. Today we will retell the last part of the story however before we do that I would like you to read your learning from yesterday.
Something woke the old man from his slumber - sweet birdsong was drifting through the air. Immediately the man knew that his guest had returned . Rushing to get outside to see the bird with his own eyes - he notices that the visitor was not alone, he had a friend with him this time. The birds dropped real seeds onto the floor. Over the next few weeks green shoots began to appear- slowly a real forest began to grow. The once lonely old man took great care in helping the forest grow.
As time past the song birds were joined by other animals exotic insects flew and crawled into the forest. Small creatures crawled, slithered and hopped amongst the new trees. The forest was teeming(means full of) with life and the vibrant noise that comes with it.
There is a forest in a fare off land which is near nowhere and close to forgotten that is filled with all the things that everyone wants. In the middle of this vibrant forest is a house and in that house lives an old man who keeps the forest alive and who enjoys seeing the birds, bees, frogs and tigers in his beautiful garden.
Once you've finished your retelling please send your learning to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so excited to read it.
Have a circle time with your family! Sit in a circle if you can.
To begin lets play a game!
I went to the supermarket
I might say I went to the supermarket and bought an apple.
The person next to me would say I went to the supermarket and bought an apple and a boomerang.
Next lets share how we feel today
I feel .....because......
What do you enjoy about being at home more?
Hello everyone, Rhiannon here again! Sorry for not popping up to you all last week but I’m back today with a little bit of baking!
Actually, this recipe is super-duper easy and you don’t even need to use the oven! I made some peanut butter and chocolate fudgey balls (can anyone come up with a better name?!)
Do you remember when we learnt about instructions in literacy? Let’s see if you can follow my instructions on how to make these yummy treats...
Ingredients: Half a cup of golden syrup Half a cup of peanut butter 1 cup of oat flour As many chocolate chips as you like!
Step 1: Pour the golden syrup into a saucepan and heat it until it starts to bubble. (Make sure you do this with an adult)
Step 2: Turn off the heat and add the peanut butter, making sure to stir it altogether until it’s nice and smooth.
Step 3: Empty the mixture into a bowl and then add the oat flour. Stir it altogether until it is well combined.
Step 4: Wait until the mixture has cooled down (otherwise your chocolate chips will melt!) Once it is cool, stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 5: Roll the dough into little balls and then pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Step 6: Enjoy!!
Do you have any recipes that you could share with us or have you done any cooking / baking? I would love to see what you’ve made :)
