When the Tiger came to Tea

Our theme this week has been based on “The Tiger Who Came To Tea” and we’ve had a lovely week of making tiger masks, tiger cupcakes and having tea parties with our “real” tigers. Thank you to Jayne and Stoke by Nayland Primary School for letting us look after them this week.

We also made delicious tiger cupcakes: the children spooned icing on and whirled it around the top of the cupcake, before adding eyes, nose, mouth, ears and whiskers – it was lovely to see how they all sat totally focused on the task – a little bit of calm before the “Dancing and Singing with with Kate” session started!


We’re getting to the end of the alphabet now but the children have brought in some very imaginative items: last week a whisk and a whistle, this week a picture of a “Fox on a Box“. Thank you to everyone for supporting their learning at home.


Last week, following our theme of Healthy Eating, we made milk shakes which proved very popular. One of our children also conducted a survey on our favourite fruit asking everyone “which is your best fruit?”. She ticked the chart and the winner was……red grapes – so we had them the next session!


“I don’t like peas – my favourite vegetable is broccoli”

Other activities have included card games, outdoor play and our maths theme has been patterns so we made animal pictures, with the animals hiding in grass.




Another EAD activity, the children made grass heads with sawdust and seeds. One little boy said “it looks like a mailbag from Thomas the Tank Engine” – yes it does!


Outside we’ve had to start weeding our vegetable patch already – but we still had time for some fun too!


Some delicious mud cakes     


 Please remember there is no Ladybirds on 1st June so we’re back on 4th June.

Have a lovely half term holiday everyone.
