Ms Huntington: June 2015
On Friday morning Oliver came dashing out to me shouting 'we have butterflies'!
One had completely emerged from it's cocoon and another one was partially out. How exciting! The children are very proud that they looked after those tiny caterpillars and now they are beautiful butterflies!
We are hoping that the rest of the butterflies emerge next week! We have planned to have a 'butterfly picnic' on the day we let them fly away! We will be finishing off our caterpillar diary and making a nice pocket for them to go into our fantastic topic books. We will be writing some facts about caterpillars and butterflies. If you have any information books then please bring them into school.
We have been learning about symmetry and making our own 'hand print symmetrical butterflies'.
We have been waiting all week for our parcels to arrive containing our new equipment. We are now the proud owners of a golf set, Frozen dressing up, tractors, addition game, phonics game, froggy number game and jewellery. Thank you for the donation of money for Base 1.
I am very proud of all the children in Base 1 who are reading so well. Thank you to all Parents who read with their child every night, it really does make a big difference to their progress.
Another brilliant week in Base 1, well done everyone!
