Last week we had maths week. We did lots of exciting things. We had a visit from Dave who taught us all about maths and how fun it is. We worked with year 3 to make board games. We also made a poster that showed ‘Maths is Magnificent ‘. Then both classes worked together to create a 2D shape painting of our wild flower area.

Yesterday we noticed a rather large bug trying to use our climbing frame. Miss Roberts bravely caught it and we used Google to find out what it was. According to our research it is a male Stag Beetle.  We gave it a little bit of orange and reported our finding as apparently these are very rare to see. We then put it back by our wildlife garden so it won’t get trodden on.

We have been busy these last few weeks.

  • We have been writing our non-decodable words
  • Finding fossils to examine
  • Working in the mud kitchen making lots of mud tea
  • And using our sound knowledge to attempt to write words and captions

Wow, we have been busy!

Before the Easter holidays, we were able to look after 8 eggs and we watched them hatch. Once they had hatched, we were able to give them food, water and a little cuddle. We really enjoyed looking after them and showed our teacher what a kind and caring class we are.

We have had some eggs arrive in RR, they are being kept warm in a incubator. We are waiting to see when they hatch. While we are waiting, we have been making our own chicks.IMG_1157[1]

We have been learning to ride a bike this week by using the balance bikes.


Did you know that balance bikes have no pedals?

We have rewarded Freddie a Head Teachers sticker for his fantastic improvement in his writing.   The first photo is of his writing before Christmas and the second photo is of his independent writing after a  phonics session. Well done Freddie!!

We were lucky to have a story telling session today in the hall. We learnt about all the different animals in the story and we came up with a few different moves to represent them.

Some of us were able to look into some glasses and it felt as if we were actually in the zoo itself, this was very scary.

We have been learning about bears and we were feeling brave last week, so we decided to go on a bear hunt.


Have a look at where we had to go
