Please can you bring in a bag for the children to take home books and work etc. Thank you
This term in Peppard Class our topic is ‘Under the Sea’. This week we have started to look at ‘The beach’. We have started to make signs to turn our outdoor role play into a beach hut and in our creative play we made beach collages out of different materials.
In maths this week we have been practicing being accurate counters and forming our numbers correctly. We have been estimating and counting objects up to 20. We have been practicing our number formation in the sand, using the water paint, chalk and using the Ipads.
We were very pleased to see that are beans have been growing in our garden. Today we picked 3 beans and enjoyed tasting them during snack time. We are all very excited about tasting the strawberries.
Welcome back. Hope you all had a fantastic Easter. Our caterpillars finally hatched!! Unfortunately they hatched during the holidays (2 days after we broke up). Miss Bryant took them to Mrs Byron’s house and we released them with her children. Miss Bryant made a slide show of pictures so we could see what they looked like.
This term our topic is Dinosaurs. This week we made a ‘Dinosaur Cave and Dig’ in our classroom. We have added our own pictures and labels. We have put sand inside and hidden fossils and made bits out of junk to help us to explore. We have been learning about non-fiction books and have identified key features. We found out information about the T-Rex and the Triceratops and we will use this information to create our own non-fiction books.
For our dinosaur display we painted our own dinosaurs. During our creative time some children decided to make their own dinosaur masks and wings. We have also created a dinosaur egg. We are hoping it will hatch soon.
In maths we have been subtracting numbers using a number line and counting back on our fingers. We have also been answer number problems.
