In maths we have been looking at comparison signs and working outside to write some chalk calculations down that made sense depending on what our sign was.
As part of our growing topic we have been labelling parts of a plant. We have also created our own plant pictures and labelled them.
As part of our active minutes we have been practising our Golden Mile each day. We are getting better and better. Today we had our next assessment of how much we have improved. Everyone did very well. Here are some pictures.
Yoga with Stevi - we had a wonderful session of yoga this afternoon. The children were so good at listening to instructions and getting into all the poses and the special love potion at the end smelt amazing!
Planting cress seeds - the children were amazed we didn't need to use soil and they would still grow. We talked about how the seeds would still anchor their roots into the cotton wool.
Watering our plants and adding some lettuce too.
We started a new topic today by reading the book 'How to grow a dinosaur together'. We learnt what a plant needs to grow and then went outside and planted some carrots, sunflowers and different types of flowers. We will look after these over the coming weeks and see what we can grow. We have also been busy making salt dough so that we can make our own dinosaur bones and fossils.
What a surprise we had today! First, we came back into the classroom to find a letter we had to read. The Easter Bunny had left it and set us a challenge. There were 10 eggs hidden outside that we had to work together to find. We completed the challenge and then after break... the Easter Bunny had been and filled our Easter baskets with yummy chocolate eggs.
Lots of Easter fun in the sun!
We have been learning about the different traditions we celebrate which are linked to the Easter Story - pancake races, Easter egg hunts, construction building a cross, eating hot cross buns and crafting our own Easter bunnies.
Using our fine motor skills to cut and spread hot cross buns - they tasted yummy.
Maths work today using lots of different resources.
Spring Science Walk looking for the seasonal changes we could spot. We saw the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees and the new buds and flowers coming through. The children had a great time and were very tired by the time we got back to school.
Our 'snot' experiment! Everyone really enjoyed it.
More Science habitats we have made.
Fun in the sunshine

We decorated our Christmas tree on Friday. Today we have completed our Santa Fun run and videoed our Christmas poem. Here are a few pictures..

The Christingle - this week we have learnt all about the Christingle and what each part represents. We made one from scratch in the classroom and then Mrs Bell carefully lit it.
Science this week- we have been looking at our senses and today we investigated our sense of hearing and our sense of touch. We all know the organ responsible for touch is our skin!
