It was Harvest Festival week at Hadrian. We celebrated in our special assembly on Wednesday. Every class was given a bread baking task this week to show in assembly. We loved making our 3 little pigs sticky brioche buns. The recipe allowed every child in class to crack their own egg! We had fun kneading our bread and watching as it rose to double the size! Everyone presented their bakes in assembly to our judges, Mrs Stokle and Mr Todd. They had the job of tasting everyone’s bakes and choosing the winning class. Our friends in Coralie’s class won the bread ‘bake off’ this year and took home the notorious winning tea towel to class. Their Italian loaf looked amazing.
We also had fun in class this week with our music therapists, Afra and Tom. Our children were so engaged in playing instruments and singing. Afra tuned into each child, responding to vocalisations and repeating sounds and tempos using her guitar. 1A are doing very well, stopping and starting at appropriate points now. This is great progress for week 4 of music therapy.
Finally, we rounded off the week with a visit from my 7 month old puppy, Wally the Sprollie. He was such a hit in class we only managed to grab a couple of photos! Everyone took turns to either hold the leash, have a stroke or feed him a biscuit, depending how confident they felt with him. It was such a treat to end a hard working week for our children in 1A!
Happy Friday everyone!
