Dr Freeze left us hot chocolate powder and marshmallows!

Dr Freeze!

 

Our first few days back at school have been very exciting. We found a secret door in our classroom! We wondered who might be behind the door and wrote them a letter to find out. We soon got a letter back from someone called Dr Freeze! He had frozen our toys in ice! We talked about how to melt the ice and came up with four different ideas. We then voted on the idea we thought was the best by placing a brick on the matching picture. All afternoon we worked together to melt the ice and free our toys. We were a little bit cross with Dr Freeze but then decided that perhaps he didn't know our classroom rules or that he didn't have any friends and was just a bit sad. So, we wrote him another letter explaining how we behave at school and asking him to be our friend. Hopefully he will write back to us soon!

Picture 1 Who lives behind the door?
Picture 2 We decorated the door and gave it a lovely garden!
Picture 3 Lots of children wrote lovely letters
Picture 4 The frozen toys!

Today we had a postcard from a palaeontologist called Dr Frank. He told us that he had been watching a dinosaur nest when suddenly a volcano started to erupt nearby! He rescued the eggs but needed our help to look after them so had hidden them in our playground! We went outside to search for the eggs and found them hidden in plant pots, tyres, grass and soil! The eggs smelt very funny and we had to handle them very carefully. We brought them inside and decided to make nests to keep the eggs safe. Each group chose their own materials and talked about why they would be good for our nest. We then chose names for our dinosaur eggs and made name labels for them. Our eggs are called Eggy, Derek, Layla and Lacey-Cute! We placed the nests and eggs in different places around the classroom and asked Mr Jago the caretaker to keep his eye on them overnight. We hope they hatch soon!
