Bugs, bugs, bugs
The children have been very eager to learn more about bugs. We started the week sharing things we knew and those we wanted to find out. We have spent the week investigating and learning new vocabulary.
As us about the similarities and differences between butterflies and moths!
We have enjoyed a Superhero theme over the last few weeks. This week Evil Pea has been playing tricks on us, but luckily there were plenty of Superheroes in class to defend us.
Our week in Year R
Here are a few photos from our busy week in Year R. We were pleased to welcome parents in to our class for a 'stay and play' session, another will be on Monday at 2:45pm. I think the grown ups had great fun playing with us!
Stories galore this week
We have been enjoying plenty of stories this week. We were excited to have the Year 3 children visit us to read the stories they had written. We then enjoyed reading our reading books to them. We ended the week by writing our own adventurous ideas inspired by the story 'On the Way Home' by Jill Murphy.
We have been finding out about the King and the Coronation, then the children have independently written their own sentences.
We all enjoyed our whole school Coronation parade and party, what a great way to end the week!
We enjoyed a walk to Mrs Glover's farm this week. We ran through the fields, saw the new piglets and fed the tame lambs.
The pirates of Year R!
We have had a swashbuckling time this week, culminating in our pirate dressing up day. The children's costumes and accessories looked fantastic and did the treasure chests, maps and wanted posters they created. We ended the week with a treasure hunt where we followed the clues and found our tasty treasure hidden up a tree!
We're off on an adventure!
We have started the summer term full of adventurous ideas.
We have decided to become pirates and create our own treasure maps, inspired by the story 'The Treasure of Pirate Frank'. We also had fun playing real life 'Pop Up Pirates' and balancing items on our pirates before the sea shanty song finished.
We were so excited for our chicks to hatch this week. They have lived in the corner of our classroom and come out for cuddles each day.
This week we have been spotting, continuing and creating our own patterns in lots of different ways. We have enjoyed the book 'Pattern Fish' and colouring our own pattern fish.
