We started the morning by writing an acrostic poem about grannies as well as drawing a granny face to go with it. I was so pleased with the results. They are now proudly on display in the classroom.
After break we invited Granny Dawson to visit us. She was simply amazing and had the children hooked on her every word. She brought a granny case, out of which she showed our classes items accompanied by wonderful stories.
|They were simply fascinated!|
|Granny Dawson told us all about her|
suitcase - no carry bags or wheelie
bags in her school days
|One of her favourite stories|
from her youth - Pookie the
flying rabbit. Her grandchildren
have all had the story read to
them as well. She left the book for
us to read.
|Grannies just love to knit -|
she showed us a scarf that
she had knitted to keep her
|Demonstrating how to cast on.|
|Granny Dawson showing us|
her beautiful hankie. She explained
how everyone used hankies in her
day. Ladies hankies were always
|Grannies like to have a knee|
rug, especially while watching
TV or knitting!
Thank you for your visit - we all agreed that you must be the most fabulous granny ever!
We ended off our day by making pom pom owls. We still have to add the eyes and feet, but they really turned out well.
What a busy, fun filled Friday we had!
