This week we have started our new topic ‘From a tiny seed’ about animal and plant life cycles and the children have been adding their ideas to our planning. They have thought of lots of questions about plants, mini beasts and local wildlife to which they want to find answers. They have decided to make our role play area into the ‘Rainbow Garden Centre’ and in class we are looking after 20 eggs in an incubator and hope to have some baby chicks hatching in three weeks’ time.
On a beautiful spring day last week, we enjoyed a lovely walk across the hill to Shaw Green Farm to see the newborn lambs. The children were full of questions and Jamie and Liz Smith ensured that we had a really fascinating morning. We learned about the arrival and care of the baby lambs and also found out many facts about the wildlife living on the hill.
In our indoor PE lessons this term we have been doing gymnastics. We have been finding different ways of travelling and balancing on different parts of our bodies. This week we did some great balance sequences on the big apparatus.
We had lots of fun on Red Nose Day and particularly enjoyed doing the Treasure Hunt at playtime with our buddies.
We enjoyed playing games and doing lots of counting , addition, subtraction, sharing and number matching on World Maths Day.
Acorn Class had great fun learning to Zumba this week.
This week, with World Book Day on Thursday, we have been enjoying all sorts of different books. On Monday we looked at a non fiction book called ‘Playtime activities’ and we followed instructions to draw a giraffe.
