Moon Class


                Teacher: Miss Hedington
             Teacher Assistant: Mrs Brophy


The children this week have decided to make a fashion show- they made the display, they chose their outfits and made up their own pose! 

They loved writing about it! 

We even had the children pretending to be photographers where they used the teachers cameras to take the photos of the fashion show. 

Week beginning: 5.3.18

The children this week have been doing something secret where they cannot tell you yet, we hope you like your surprise on Sunday mummies.

Have a lovely Mothers Day!

Although we didn’t go through a swirling whirling snowstorm on our bear hunt.

We had a swirling whirling snowstorm in Bellingham!

We couldn’t go over,

We couldn’t go under it,
We couldn’t go around it,

So we went through it and had so much FUN!!

Week beginning: 19.2.18

We went on a Bear Hunt
We caught a big one
It was a beautiful day!
We were not scared.

Splash Splosh!

We then saw one wet shiny nose,
two big furry ears,
two big googly eyes
we found a BEAR!

We thought it was a nice happy friendly bear who felt lonely so we all gave it a BIG HUG and took it back through the forest, stumble trip… back through the river, splash splosh… back through the mud, squelch squerch... back through the grass, swishy swashy and back to the Horton Kirby Classroom.

We had a lovely video of all of moon class children giving the bear a hug but the video size was too big to upload

Life skills:
We have been learning about money and the different coins we can use this week.

Some of moon class went to the supermarket to buy some fruit for us to make our own fruit salad.
We bought apples, bananas, tangerines, a pineapple, pomegranate and a melon.
We paid with: 1 pound, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p coins.


We then got to chop the fruit into small chunks using a knife and add it to our fruit salad.
The children were super at cutting and they were very sensible.

Please encourage them to cut their own food up at home.
