Update from Mrs. Marsh: Day 9 (5th June).  Our beautiful butterflies are starting to emerge!

Day 3 in new home (30th May): no change to us today!

Our chrysalises have been moved to a new home for the half term break.  Mrs. Marsh is looking after them for us, to make sure that they are given the best of care.

This week, we have enjoyed reading poems about the seaside and investigating rhyme and rhythm.  We even had a go at writing our own seaside poems.

We wish you all a very happy half term and look forward to seeing you all again soon for the final part of the Summer term.

Week beginning 24th May - Our tiny caterpillars are now growing big and strong and have now begun to form their chrysalis.  It is fascinating to watch the chrysalis wiggle around and we hope that it won't be too long before we can watch them emerge as beautiful butterflies!

Week beginning 19th April - In Maths this week, we have been measuring using centimetres and metres.  We spent some time in Explorers measuring sticks and arranging them in size order.  In PE, we have been practising our bowling and striking skills.

Autumn Term Overview

Week beginning 14th December 2020
This week, Rabbit Class enjoyed making arrays of winter robins during their Maths lesson. 

We also enjoyed learning about reindeer and were surprised to discover that all Santa's reindeer must be female because male reindeer loose their antlers during the winter. We also learnt that the world's largest herd of reindeer is really big and consists of around 1 million reindeer.

After we had discovered lots of new facts, we made some split pin reindeer of our own.

We have started rehearsing for our nativity play 'Dinky Donkeys' this week.  If you get a chance to help your child to practise their words this weekend, that would be great!   Please bring in any costumes at the beginning of next week if you have not already done so.  Any problems - please ask!  Thank you!

RE - Advent. We thought of the different ways people get ready for Christmas during advent.

Maths - We have been using money to compare different amounts. We showed the comparisons by using the inequality and equals signs.

Art - We made some beautiful Christmas tree decorations. We cut different lengths of paper, stuck them to lolly sticks and decorated with sequins. A lovely way to spend a cold and foggy Friday afternoon!

Fine Motor Skills - We have been doing some early morning work when we first come in this week to practise our fine motor skills. One of the activities was to build a tower out of 'hama beads'. It was more tricky than it looks!

This week we have continued to find out more about the countries within the United Kingdom during our Geography lessons, and enjoyed researching and producing fact files about Wales. 

Our science work this week also involved research, along with a wet, muddy but fun afternoon. We enjoyed searching and investigating minibeast habitats and managed to find quite a few. We then wrote about some of the microhabitats we had located and created pictograms  to show how many minibeasts each of us had found, back in the classroom.
