After Finlay's mom read the story of Peter Rabbit to us Finlay invited his friends to play Peter Rabbit with him in the classroom. They started by constructing their rabbit hole. What would be a good place for it? What do we need for it?
"We need walls!" - Hugh
Sam pretended to be Mr. McGregor, who sometimes likes to take a nap in the warm sunshine. Then the rabbits can sneak out of their rabbit hole and quietly make their way over to Mr. McGregors garden to steal some of his carrots (books, scarves, ...). But beware when Mr. McGregor wakes back up! You better run back to your rabbit hole before he catches you!
Everyone absolutely LOVED "playing rabbit". Right as Luke walked in to school this morning he asked "Can we play rabbit? Run away from bad guy."
Thank you to Finlay and his family for sharing their tradition with us!
Today the children started to decorate their Valentines Bags. They will be set up in the classroom and ready to be filled with lovely messages. Every child is invited to make cards at school or if you would like you can also prepare cards at home for all the children. If you decide to do that, please consider that we have 15 children in the Brown Room and remember to not address them to a specific child. That will make it easier for handing them out.
Since Valentine's Day falls on a weekend this year, we will celebrate it
on Friday, February 12th and Tuesday, February 16th.
