Superworm Welly Wednesday.

The weather was a little bit too wet for us to go outside first thing this morning but it didn’t stop our fun. We made edible mud pies, worm paintings using string instead of paintbrushes and even threaded Cheerios on to string and straws to make giant worms. We coloured Superworm pictures and designed our very own superhero pants! The sun eventually came out and we were able to have a little play outside before home time.

Pupils competed against each other and also wrote their own quiz for others to answer. Why don’t you test their knowledge against yourselves at home?

The children have been busy making their own Torah Scrolls this afternoon. They have learnt that it is the holy book within Judaism. It is sacred and must be handled with care. It is read using a pointer called a Yad and is kept in a special cupboard called an Ark. They really enjoyed making their mini Torah Scrolls! Ardderchog.
