Today our Year 2s had an exciting treat. We have been working hard in class to prepare for our Traditional Tales Tea Party. Usually we would invite our grown ups in to celebrate this with us. We obviously weren't able to do this this year but we still had lots of fun!
We each helped to make the bunting for it as part of our art project, we thought carefully about what pictures to use on the bunting and how to make them stand out.
In design technology, we created a board game for us to play with our friends. It was very exciting to think about the board games we have at home and make up our own versions. We thought of lots of rules and features we could magpie and then got to work on creating our own. These will be coming home as part of our home learning this week, so that the children can enjoy them with their families.
The most exciting part of the day was making our own sandwiches. We had to choose our own ingredients and then prepare the sandwiches ourselves. Some of us found it tricky to spread the butter/jam but we persevered and we were very proud of our efforts.
Then came the real fun, the actual tea party itself. We had music on and the classroom was decorated with lots of traditional tales characters. The children enjoyed eating their sandwiches, playing their games and singing/dancing along to the music. It is always the favourite part of our topic and this year was no different. There were lots of smiles all round, as you can see from the pictures.
