Ms Huntington: May 2015
What a busy, exciting week we've had in Base 1!
We love Handa's Surprise. We've had lots of fun pretending to go on Handa's journey through our school woods until we reached Akeyo's house! We became authors and wrote our own book based on the story. We talked about the beginning, middle and end of the story. Our books are looking good. We are beginning to learn the song about Handa's journey and we can make up our own rhythms to the tune. Hand's basket of fruit has come in useful as we have been weighing the fruit to see how many cubes 'heavy' it is and also we are beginning to learn about sharing and halving.
Some of us found Africa on a map of the world and next week we will fly off to Africa for the day. Don't forget to pack your case ready for our adventures!
We are still very proud of our model animals and a display is beginning to appear in Base 1 . Look out and see if you can spot where your animal is? It might be hanging from a branch or flying above a tree! For the next couple of weeks we will be learning facts about some of our favourite animals and of course seeing them for real at Knowsley Safari Park. See if you can find out some interesting facts about your favourite animal. We became artists later on in the week and painted our favourite animals. We enjoyed listening to the story of Noah's Ark and re-telling the story with our very own Ark!
We have been doing some problems solving with numbers and counting in 10's. We are beginning to learn number facts to 10. Next week we will use the Noah's Ark story to help us understand and count in 2's.
It is all so very exciting and we can't wait for next week. have a great Bank Holiday weekend!

What a busy week it has been in Base 1! We have started looking at the book Stuck by Oliver Jeffers in literacy. We started by looking just at the front cover and making predictions about what we thought the story might be about. There were some lovely ideas about what the little boy might get stuck up the tree and the children were able to link their ideas to personal experiences! When we...
