Shrove Tuesday

Today is Shrove Tuesday. This is a Christian tradition before the fasting of Lent (the lead up to the celebration of Easter).The day after Pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) is known as Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. Traditionally rich foods such as eggs were forbidden through Lent, so making pancakes was one way to use up the rich foods.

Guide Dog Visit

On Wednesday, the 22ndFebruary, we went to the Library to meet Pam and her guide dog, Wibbs.

 

First Pam introduced herself and her dog to the children. Everybody sat very quietly so they didn’t scare Wibbs.

 

Next Pam told us the three rules to remember when we see a guide dog.

1. Don’t pat the guide dog when it has its harness on.

2. Don’t talk to the guide dog.

3. Don’t feed the guide dog.

Then Pam showed us some gadgets that help her live without sight. One gadget you put in a cup to help you pour in hot water without getting burnt. It beeps when the water gets to the top of the cup. Another gadget helps Pam to listen to stories.

 

Finally we were allowed to pat Wibbs, the guide dog. He didn’t have his harness on so it was okay to pat him. We were very interested in learning how Pam lives without her eyesight.

Rosy stayed at home and read a book about animals. Then she played on her ipad.

Daniel went to the festival and went on a very exciting ride. Lots of people were screaming when it went upside down. Nicolas went on the same ride too!

Jackie went to his cousin’s house and played with his cousin’s toys. He then had lunch.

Melina went to her cousin’s house. He was having a birthday party.

In our classroom on Wednesday afternoon, we made creations out of clay.

First our teacher gave us the clay. It felt cold in our hands.

 

Next we squished and pounded the clay to soften it.

 

Then we started making our wonderful creations.

There were many different kinds of things that we made like trees, animals, tea cups and bowls.

 

Finally we washed our hands and waited for our clay to dry. We had so much!
