Unfortunately our class butterflies did not hatch in time before the Easter Holiday. So Miss Burlone had the excitement of watching the beautiful butterflies come out from their cocoons and release them when they were ready to fly.

Future events:-  

In Squirrel class, we are looking forward to having our very own Butterfly Garden. We will be looking to see how caterpillars change through the life cycle to become butterflies.

Due to the cold weather, the mobile farm we were expecting today has been postponed. We are very excited that we will be seeing the animals soon.

During Play to Learn this week the children have enjoyed creating their own celebration picture to go up onto our class displays. They talked with a friend or an adult about what they celebrate.

Our Maths Word of the Week this week is ‘More Than / Less Than’. The children have been finding more or less by using Numicon pieces and recording the jumps on a number track.

In English we have been retelling the Christmas story using our Talk 4 Writing actions.

In phonics our new letter sounds this week are: ‘j’, ‘v’ and ‘w’.


Class Update – 8th Nov 2017

This Autumn term we are thinking about different celebrations. We have been talking in class about what we do to celebrate special occasions. We have recently visited Cosham Baptist Church and St Phillips Church to learn about different celebrations which take place there.

In Maths we have been creating our own celebration themed number stories. In English we have been writing about The Christmas Story using our Talk 4 Writing story map to help us.

We are also busy rehearsing for our very special Nativity performance, learning lines and singing songs!

The children have enjoyed talking about their amazing celebration homework too.
