Catching the Robbers

When we came to school on Tuesday we decided we needed to catch the robbers who stole Brixton Bear.

We deduced that it must have been Grandma Swagg from our story ‘Cops and Robbers’. We described her and made posters to show the rest of the school so they can look out for her.

When we got back from lunch we found foot prints on the floor. After measuring all of our feet and comparing tread patterns, we realised that is couldn’t have been anyone from the class. Just then, a letter arrived from Grandma Swagg explain that she was sorry that she stole Brixton because she wanted her own teddy bear to cuddle.

Where is Brixton Bear?

On Monday we returned from lunch to find Brixton Bear was missing. We looked at all of the clues and realised that some robbers had taken him.

We made posters to put around school and searched all of the classrooms but we could not find him.

When we looked outside we looked as a team in all of the trees, up high and down low, but we still couldn’t see him. When we looked in the last tree we saw him tied up! We worked as a team and thought of ways to get him down. We listened and tried all the ideas and finally freed him.

Making Music

We are really enjoying learning our nativity songs in nursery and reception.

We have been using the sound makers to make music to sing along to and put on a show ready for our Christmas nativity.

Sound makers

This week nursery have been exploring different sounds.

We then worked together to make our own sound makers. We used different sized and shaped containers filled with different foods to make sounds and explore how they all sounded different


This week for our Commando Joe mission we played the emotions game.

One of our team was blindfolded and we had to use our communication and team work skills to guide each other to different emotions.

Rainbow Factory

Reception had a fantastic time on out trip to the Rainbow Factory.

We watched a special show about a witch who mixed up all of our favourite stories and had to work together to sort them out. After lunch we acted out some of our favourite stories, went into the story book room and then made up our own stories. We tired ourselves out!
