On Friday we were getting carried away with our 'egg' related jokes! That was because, while we were at the zoo we had a delivery of eggs!! The eggs became very noisy the next morning but we soon discovered that some of them had hatched!! What 'eggcitement'!! Charlie who is our 'eggspert' explained that the eggs look different because they are from different hens and that is why the little chicks are a variety of colours. He very carefully removed the egg shells as the chicks were hatching. Thank you Mr & Mrs Midwinter for providing this experience for our children. The children got quite motivated by the empty egg shells and decided to make nests and 'safe' boxes for them. What a wonderful 'eggsperience' for the children. We quite enjoyed 'cracking' egg jokes on Friday ( well I did!!).

The children in Base 1 thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the zoo. Thanks to Mrs Garbe for being 'chief' map reader, due to her skills we managed to see so many wonderful animals! A very big thank you to our Parent helpers it was a very tiring day but also one of responsibility. Mrs Parsons felt the need to remove her boots on the way home as she had come prepared for the cold and the rain!! The photographs are brilliant but one thing we found out about Base 1 children, they do love a group photograph!! We were very impressed by the writing that was produced the next day as the children recalled what they had seen. We linked their writing to learning about '0' Clock and what happened at different times during the day.

We have set up a ticket office in our outdoor area for the children to re-enact their zoo experience. We will be continuing to learn about money, paying for tickets and fluffy animals from the zoo shop!

We are coming to the end of this half term and the children are getting ready for a break but please continue to read and learn words with your child. Any number related activities that you can do at home will be invaluable. In numbers we are securing different ways to add and subtract including using fingers, putting one number in your head and counting on and also using number lines up to 20.

After half term we will focus on the smaller creatures in our world We will also have an animal theme day, where the children will come dressed up as a animal and we will do a range of animal related activities. Date to be confirmed, but please start to think about possible animal outfits.

Thank you once again for all your support.

What a busy week we had last week! We started off the week by watching an explorer enter an ancient pyramid. We used role play and conscious alley to think abut the characters's thoughts and feelings when entering the pyramid. As a class, we did a lot of vocabulary work to try and expand and develop the vocabulary we use in our writing. We will be using all of this work to produce a piece...

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
