Our Learning

 

 

We’ve got a visitor in EY at the moment. Our tortoise is preparing to hibernate and we have been watching him really carefully. Whilst we were thinking about animal homes, we went outside to make new homes for some animals. We used natural materials and practiced our knot tying skills.

 

 

 

What a busy first term we have had! Have a look at what we have been up to!

2016 – 2017

Summer 1

Topic

We have been looking at people who help us this term.

The children have loved having visits from the police and we look forward to visiting the fire station.

Maths

We have been looking at 3D shapes and time this half term.

The children enjoyed going to Waitrose on a shape hunt!

Spring 2 – Things that swim!

Thank you for all your homework, you have worked hard over the holidays and we have really enjoyed hearing about the animals you have researched!

Here is what we have been learning the last couple of weeks:

Topic 

Leopard Seals – We have been out onto the playground to measure how big a leopard seal is.

Can you believe they can grow up to 3 1/2 meters long!

Emperor penguins – We pretended we were a daddy penguin and tried to waddle around making sure our ‘chick’ didn’t fall into the snow!  It was harder than we thought.

 

Maths

We have taken our maths outside this week – we are working hard to complete independent and paired maths problems within the teen numbers.

Phonics

We have been working hard on our independent writing, reading and our handwriting.

World Book Day

There were some fantastic costumes and we enjoyed hearing all about the children’s favourite books!
