We all made a model of a house which we added to our street before we started the fire in the bakery! The children loved watching the fire progress and understanding how quickly it spread. Luckily Eddie was on hand to put the fire out. What a great experience!

Welcome to White Frogs!
Our topic this term is The Great Outdoors.
We have started the term off with looking at Christianity and important places for Christians.
We have also been looking at different types of places (towns, villages, cities, countryside).
On the 28.4.15 we worked in groups to complete jigsaws on a city and countryside scene as part of our topic lesson on comparing different places and using key words to describe the countryside (tree, hill, farm, flowers, fields) and city (buildings, cars, roads, people, busy).
We really enjoyed this activity and it was lovely to see the children helping their friends to find the pieces that they were looking for.
We have been carrying these jigsaws on in choose/ free time since this lesson.
Earlier on in the term we went on some walks around Skelmersdale to see the landscape of the countryside and some of the local landmarks. We visited The Concourse, Asda, St Pauls Church, the playing fields, War Memorial, Coronation Park and Beacon Point. We then went and looked at what plants we could see in our local area. We walked to the local church, over the park and around some of the different streets.
White Frogs really enjoyed Spanish Week. We made a tomato vine Pinata out of balloons and paper mache.
We tried chorizo, french stick bread and made a spanish omlette.
We were really good at the Flamenco dancing!
We were SO excited for the tomato throwing and couldn't wait to get our 'revenge' on the staff!
Happy Easter from everyone in White Frogs!
We have had a great Spring term in White Frogs!
Have a lovely Easter holidays and we'll see you next term.
We decided to take two selfies- a cheesy selfie and a funny selfie!
Louise, Catherine, Jayne, Emma and all the children in White Frogs.
We have all really enjoyed our Easter activities. We made chocolate Rice Crispie cakes, we decorated hard boiled eggs, we made Easter cards and we went on an Easter Hunt around the school.
White Frogs had Firefighter John come to visit us on Thursday 26th March.
He showed us what smoke smelled like and what a smoke alarm sounds like.
We then talked about how to stay low to the floor (to get fresh air) in a smokey room and crawl out- we practised this using a big black sheet.
Then we looked at how to escape from houses if there was a fire.
Paint, play games, write stories and lots more on Purple Mash.
We would love to hear your comments about White Frogs work.
