Pizza Party

Today in school we made pizzas. Yum!First we spread tomato sauce on the base.


Then we used sweet corn, tomatoes, ham and pineapple for the toppings. Then we put cheese on top.


Then we heated them in the oven until the cheese melted. Some people got very creative and made pizza people. They were delicious.

Insect Adventure

Today we read a book about two children who went on an adventure in their garden. They found lots of insects hiding in the garden. We used our magnifying glasses to help the children find all the insects. As you can see from the pictures, we took our job very seriously and managed to find all the insects. Well done everyone!

A fox came to visit

We had a very unusual visitor to Greenmount over the past few weeks. A beautiful red fox came to visit us with his friend. We watched them play in the garden. Then we wrote reports on the fox. We wrote about what the fox eats and what he can do. Then we drew fantastic pictures of the fox.

A Visit from the Lollipop Lady

Colette, the Lollipop Lady, came to visit the Language Classes. She told us all about how to cross the road safely. She reminded us to wear our high-vis jackets so that the cars will be able to see us. We had great fun pretending to be cars and stopping when Colette put out her sign. Then our friends were able to cross the road. Thank you Colette for being so nice to us and thanks especially for the yummy lollipops.


Happy Birthday Lily

Letter Writing

We read a story called ‘Dear Zoo’. It is all about a little boy who wrote to the zoo asking for a pet. They sent him some very interesting animals. We decided that we would also write to the zoo for a pet. Here are our letters:

Santa’s Visit

Ho Ho Ho! We couldn’t believe our eyes when we walked into Santa’s grotto today! There, sitting in his rocking chair, was the big man himself. It was so magical. We asked him lots of questions about what we should leave out for him on Christmas Eve and what reindeer eat. We promised him that we had been very good and he told us that he had read all our letters. Then he reached into his big red sack and brought out a selection box for each one of us. We were so excited!
