What's going on in class?
w/b: 6th June 2022
After half term we always love to share our news together as a class but this week when we came to get Lenny the lion, our class mascot who always helps us with our circle time, we found that he was missing. Upon closer inspection, we found a scroll in Lenny's usual resting place and opened it up to see what was inside only to find out that Lenny had been kidnapped by pirates!
We have been busy writing letters to Pirate Pete asking to have Lenny back and we also made wanted posters to put up around the school in case anyone should see him.

This week in literacy we have been reading, 'The Mixed-up Chameleon' by Eric Carle, whilst in maths we have been learning about numbers beyond 10.
In topic we have been exploring minibeast habitats! We have been on minibeast hunts in the outdoor area and have been exploring our very own creepy crawlies in the minibeast tuff tray.
We are also at a very exciting stage of our caterpillar life cycle! Our caterpillars have made their cocoons and are now resting in our special butterfly tent. Reception are looking after them carefully and checking on them each day to see how they are developing!
In the outdoor area we have been busy thinking about where we would like to visit on our very special train. We looked at the board and chose a destination, we then wrote our own tickets and talked about what we would do when we got there. Some children made flags to wave the train off whilst others were busy in the garden collecting things for their journey.

This week we are reading 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell to link in with our school trip. We have been thinking about what pet we would ask for and we have had a go at writing a letter of our own to the zoo.
In Maths we have been consolidating our learning about numbers to 10 and have been using a variety of different resources to practise our counting, our number recognition and formation and our number bonds to 10.
Here we used Numicon shapes and balancing pans to find ways of making different totals to 10. We thought carefully about how to make each number and placed the shapes into the pans to see if we could make them balance.
