Friday 13th March 2020 - Sport relief 

We have enjoyed taking part in sports relief today. We have enjoyed being part of a team and wearing our team colours. We loved all the different activities and obstacle courses and had the most amazing afternoon!

Thursday 5th March 2020 - World Book Day 

We had the best day during world book day. It was lovely to see so many wonderful costumes. We started with a parade in the hall to show our costumes off! We then had a lovely time sharing stories with the year 3 children. We spent the day sharing stories and talking about our favourite book characters. We already can't wait for next year!

Tuesday 3rd March 2020 - Planting Magic Jelly Beans

We have been reading Jack and the Jelly Beanstalk. We have enjoyed thinking about what we would like our Jelly beanstalk to grow into! Some of our ideas included unicorns, trains, bubble-gum, lollypop trees, infinity money and chocolate dinosaurs! Fingers crossed!!!

What will our Jelly Beans grow into?

Friday 28th February 2020 - Forest School 

Today we had lots of fun playing parachute games in the hall.  We then played a game of 'tug of war'. Both the boys and girls each won a game!

We then ventured outside in the forest for a very muddy, but very fun walk. We loved getting some fresh air and feeling the squelchy mud on our wellies.

Tuesday 25th February 2020 - Pancake day

We learnt about the meaning of pancake day. We enjoyed designing our own toppings that we wanted to try. We had a go at flipping pancakes and tasting them too. Our favourite part of the day was having pancake races... especially when Mr Page joined us!

This week we had a visit from The Big Sheep farmer and his friend.  We were so excited to meet Bear and we really enjoyed playing with him and finding out all about his job at the Big Sheep.

Thursday 13th February 2020 - Longer or Shorter?

We explored length by ordering objects from shortest to longest.  We collected objects from around the classroom and compared them before putting them in order.  We enjoyed sharing what we did with our friends.

Friday 7th February 2020 - When I grow up!

We have been reading the book when I grow up by Jon Hales. We have been discussing what we would like to be. We were really inspired by our parent visitors and would like to say a huge thank you to Billy's Dad and Eva's Mum. We really appreciated you giving up your time.

We have been exploring the number 14 this week. The children have been adding numbers to make 14. We used flowers to support our learning!

Flower addition!
