We have been making the most of our outside learning area, the beautiful bird feeders have been attracting some birds and even butterflies.  We set the children a challenge to find ways of getting across the area without touching the ground!  It was brilliant to see them working together as a team and problem solving.

It has been healthy schools week, so we have talked about how we keep ourselves healthy and what we can eat to keep our bodies healthy, we loved making smoothies and thinking up different recipes!

Our book focus for this week has been The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  We have made some amazing pictures of caterpillars and looked at the life cycle of the caterpillar.  This led us onto looking at butterflies and symmetrical patterns.

The children have been given the exciting opportunity to learning how to ride a bike, so we have started a Balanceability course where they start to leaning how to balance on balance bikes (with no pedals and no stabilizers)  They are doing really well, some are managing to take their feet off the floor and confidently glide.

 

Next Week:

Please keep up with the reading and learning our tricky words.

Our book focus for next week will be Jaspers Beanstalk by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen.

 

Polite Reminder:

Please be aware that the area outside Truro and Redruth Classrooms is an outside learning are and not a playground to be used before and after school.
