It has been a great week this week, with lots of exciting things going on.

Today we enjoyed a visit from a magician called “The Great Randini” who taught us all about road safety and the magic of Stop Look and Listen!

In maths we have been looking at halving and sharing, we have put the children in lots of different scenarios and looked at how we can share objects and halve objects, they grasped this really well.

Our studies of the book The very Hungry Caterpillar have been a great success and have led to lots of great writing, recounting the story and some beautiful creations of caterpillars.

We set the children a challenge question this week and asked them why we have the logo of a train on our uniform?  We have had some great answers to this, including “So that people know we are all from the same place.”   The children have been engrossed in making model trains, copying our logo and even building a train line, complete with outlet village and station!

In our outdoor classroom we have made some very tuneful wind chimes!  Thank you for all the donations of metal cutlery and even some copper piping cut to size, complete with holes drilled! Amazing!

Exciting news:

We have been working very hard today in our Eco Classroom, creating a superb bug hotel!  We foraged for lots of natural things to make some interesting habitats for the bugs to enjoy.  We sat in our log circle and enjoyed talking about the bugs that might use the hotel and look forward to going back to see our visitors!

Book focus for next week will be Jack and the Beanstalk.
