Last week the Year 1s made an amazing discovery in the school field. An archaeologist wrote a letter to the class, explaining that they thought we might have some fossils on our school site. The children were very excited to dig up the fields and made some amazing discoveries. Real dinosaur fossils! Well done children for your super team work and perseverance to find the fossils.
We've had a warm and busy first week back in Reception. The children have loved watching our tadpoles grow legs and develop into froglets. We now have our first frog ready to be released into the pond! Our focus story has been The Very Hungry Caterpillar where the children have been working hard to write sentences to retell the story. Our class caterpillars are growing too and the children have loved making observations of the caterpillars each day. We have learnt about the lifecycle of a butterfly and next week will be making and information book all about it.
In Maths we have been learning about halving and sharing equally into two groups. This is something that can be practised easily at home too.
The children have enjoyed making their own minibeast clay imprints and will be painting them next week once they've dried out.
Next week the children will continue to develop their understanding of halving and sharing equally.
Find out all of the exciting things we have been doing.
