Squirrels Class

We have had another busy week in Squirrels class.

We have been ordering things by size in maths and learning to find things using positional language.


In English we have a new story called 'Dragon Post' which we are enjoying as we get to read letters.


In cooking we made hot and cold sandwiches , we are getting very good at spreading.


On Wednesday we had a lovely wellness day and we did lots of fun activities and all the children had a great time doing yoga with Mrs Mason.

Wow what a busy week we have had!


We went on a trip to Build a Bear and chose a new bear for the primary classes, it was great fun we got to play with the stuffing machine and learnt lots of bear facts.


We made some coconut treats to celebrate Diwali and made some Diwali lamps.


In maths we were counting and adding, we love the game 'Bus stop' because you have to teake away too.


We did some lovely sharing outside the squirrels staff were so proud of the children.


For Children in need we enjoyed breakfast together and joined in lots of fun activities including a disco.

Welcome back everyone I hope you had a lovely half term.


We have started the term by getting to grips with counting out the correct number of objects to our numbers, this can be a bit tricky but we are trying lots of different ways to get it right and we love a good game of bingo.


In English our story focus if 'No Dragons for Tea' it has a fire safety link to it but it is about a little girl who invites a dragon for tea and then he sneezes, well can you imagine what happened?


In topic we are looking at Fire and Ice this term and began with talking about fire safety.


In art we made some poppies to remember the fallen.


We finished the week off with a party for a special little boy who will be 7 this weekend.

Wow what a fabulous way to bring our dinosaur topic to a close, our trip to Jurassic World at Wollaton park was amazing. The children were so well behaved and a credit to the school and parents.

They climbed on and interacted with the giant dinosaurs we had so much fun and ended the trip with a quick play on the adventure park.


Earlier in the week we made healthy dinosaur fruit models and enjoyed tasting the different fruits, hope you enjoyed them at home too.


In maths we certainly nailed the patterns and get very adventurous with them too.


Hope everyone has a safe bonfire night.

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 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.
