It was Reception and Year 1's turn to decorate cupcakes today. They were so careful when they placed their icing on their cake and then decorated them with unicorn sprinkles, chocolate stars and smarties. They couldn't wait to take them home so they could eat them.
The children had a go at decorating cakes this lunchtime. Firstly, they had to ice their cakes before adding on whichever topping they wanted. They could choose from pink, blue or chocolate icing before decorating with chocolate stars, unicorn sprinkles, marshmallows or chocolate smarties. The children loved decorating them and years 4 and 5 are looking forward to decorating cakes on Thursday.
The children made sure that reading was even more enjoyable today by creating these cute bookmarks using origami.
Year 4 and 5 took part in a messy craft club today. They were painting using tin foil. All children had a piece of tin foil which they would scrunch up. They then opened the tin foil back up and used a paintbrush to dab different coloured paint onto. After they had applied the paint they printed it onto a piece of paper.
The children had lots of fun today colouring in their scarecrows. They then cut them out carefully and put them together using split pins. Have a look at their fantastic results!
Years 1, 2 and 3 Craft Club
Children had lots of fun today creating Christmas key rings. They drew two Christmassy pictures before placing them in a key ring that they could then take home.
Children enjoyed crafting this week. They used a tool to scratch away areas of a picture to reveal lots of different colours. The children were amazed by this and thought the tool was a magic pen! At the end of the session the children added a magnet to their picture.
Today we had a very busy lunchtime with children from all year groups building a variety of different things out of Lego, Straws or Knex. Some children even built a house that was taller than they were!
Years 2 and 3 had fun today creating pictures using sand. They chose a picture and peeled off various areas to reveal a sticky surface. They then covered these in different coloured sands. The children enjoyed created their final outcomes and looked forward to taking them home.

Slip into Slippers Day
During our exciting "Slip into Slippers" Day, children were invited to come into The Den to complete a variety of different activities. These included designing their own slippers and a slipper quiz.
It was also construction club and the children challenged themselves to build the biggest house out of straws. Some children just enjoyed reading in the snug area. It was even more relaxing in pj's and slippers!
