Having sent out a plea for cardboard boxes we were lucky enough to be given two huge ones for the classroom. We used one to create a special place as part of our R.E. work. The children decorated their special place with pictures and patterns, coloured lights, cushions and throws and decided it should be used as a place for sharing books or having some quiet time with a friend. We then brainstormed ideas on how to use our second box- I liked the idea of a bus but I was outvoted, and the box became a dragon! We read the story of 'Zog' by Julia Donaldson and watched the animated tale before drawing our own dragons and naming them. Princess Pearl in the story wanted to be a doctor and Robins talked about many different kinds of jobs before imagining what job they might like to do when they grow up. Watch out for future actors, gymnastic instructors, vets, builders and tractor drivers! We celebrated the end of term with a campfire and toasted marshmallows at Forest School.
