In English we are looking at the story of Mr Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham it's a fabulous story about a boat trip and we had great fun and can you believe it we all got wet when Mrs Harris told the story as she got us with her water spray! It was fun though.


Our computing topic is 'Make something happen' and we enjoyed using the remote control on the pass the parcel, it was trick to stop it in the right place.


We are all looking forward to our visit next week to Jurassic World at Wollaton Park.

This week in maths we have been working on capacity with a focus on empty and full some children have progressed to half full. We have learnt a song call 'Fill it up' and have been using water, coloured salt and rice crispies  to fill and empty different containers.


In English we have been looking at rhyming sounds and words and trying to find words that sound the same, it's a bit tricky but we are giving it our best shot!


We are looking after ourselves with our daily mile and have been brushing our teeth after dinner.


We celebrated another birthday this week and had fun with pass the parcel and musical chairs.


We had great excitement this week when we found and egg, we put it in water and waited for it to hatch, we had to wait until the next day and a tiny dinosaur hatched out, can you believe it we hatched a dinosaur in our classroom!

What a start to the week with the school photographer in school, we struck some lovely posers!


In maths we did lots of counting activities, we counted people getting on and off our bus, skittles knocked down and lots of other objects.


In English it was all about saying if we liked or didn't like something, some of us could sort the fruit and vegetables into like and don't like but some of us have a little more work to do!


In computing we continued with making things happen and we used the happyland train set putting the driver on to make it stop and start with an additional focus on turn taking.


We have continued to complete our daily mile and found more balls this week we will have a great collection soon.


Our topic this week focussed on sorting the dinosaurs into those with 2 legs and those with 4 legs.


We have also been perfecting our cutting skills.


Hope you enjoyed your apple crumbles we had fun making them.



This week in maths we are trying to find the next number, it's a bit tricky but we are getting there.

In English we are talking about what we like and don't like. Lot's of the children like the happy land train set and love sharing with their friends.
