Once upon a time a beanstalk started to grow ......
The children asked the teachers to sleep at school to find out who was leaving us special letters. So Miss Bigford and Miss Cowley bedded down for the night in the teachers cupboard. It was so warm that they both fell asleep! They were woken the next morning by the children coming into school.
After weeks of trying to find out who our visitor was, we had an exciting letter from Princess Glenda of Fairy Tale Land. She asked us to write a fairy tale all about her. We had a great week in Big Book time making up our own fairy tale all about Princess Glenda. She was so pleased with her story that she invited us to a fairy tale ball to say thank you. On Tuesday 14 February, we all attended Princess Glenda's Valentines Ball. We had a fantastic morning completing fairy tale activities like making crowns, writing our own place cards for the feast, following fairy tale land maps, designing shape castles and making our own puppets. We also made delicious fruit kebabs to eat at our Royal feast.
After lunch we were all excited to attend the ball. We enjoyed a delicious fairy tale feast of fruit kebabs and a gingerbread man that the teachers rescued from the fox!
After the feast, we entered the Royal Hall for some ballroom dancing expertly demonstrated by Princess Bigford and Princess Cowley!
Suddenly, there was a loud bang at the doors. A fanfare started and in swept Princess Glenda of Fairy Tale land!
Princess Glenda invited us to have our picture taken with her.
We finished the afternoon with a celebration drink in a very special glass!
We all had an amazing afternoon! Thank you so much for all of your support with the fantastic costumes the children wore.
