Summer Term

This term we went to visit the animals at Paradise Wildlife Park it was a fun day had by all and they enjoyed feeding the farmyard animals.



We have been busy learning about money and some of us are beginning to use everyday language related to money. We made a toyshop role-play and wrote our own price labels. We have also been learning the value of different coins up to £2 and some of us can use coins to make different amounts up to 10p.

We have also learnt about weight this term and we have been using the scales to weigh ourselves it was a lot of mathematical fun.







We have been reading the story Alien’s love underpants and have been learning all about space and making creepy aliens.



We also read the story whatever Next and the children pretended to go to the moon as you can see Baby Bear is off to the moon!



We have been exploring the use of different technological toys in our class and how they can help us with learning.




We really enjoyed science week and many of us are now aspiring scientists. Yellow have explored making snow from nappies and are amazed at what happens when we mix food colouring with milk and washing up liquid. We even made a volcano that erupted! We have been able to make observations and explain why some things occur as well as talk about changes.
