We have been working very hard at keeping this Golden Rule, lots of discussions have been taking place about how we can be kind; one child said “if you are kind, you will be happy”. This led us onto lots of discussions about how we can make each other happy.

A new dinosaur friend called Kindosarus joined our class this week, and to be just like a Kindosarus, we have to:

“Be kind with words”

“Be kind with hands”

and, “Be kind to friends.”

We have been learning all about bread this week, from field to bakery.  That is, the farmer sowing seeds to grow wheat, before this is harvested and taken to be milled into flour.  We looked very closely at some real wheat and then had a go at baking our own bread rolls.  Unlike the animals in the stories, we were all extremely helpful, carefully weighing the flour as well as all the other ingredients. Having shaped the dough into rolls, we waited for the ‘magic yeast’ to make our rolls grow before popping them into the oven. We then waited patiently for our bread to bake.

We also had fun cutting and using Sellotape to make our own hen masks and then using them to act out the story with our friends. There was also lots of designing going on in Kindergarten, making Little Red Hens – we used feathers and googly eyes to transform paper plates into little hens, which are now on display in our classroom.

Our topic next week is The Enormous Turnip.
