Week Beginning 17th October

We have been learning all about  how to look after pets this week.

We had Mrs Simster's dog Pip visit us and we took him for walks, fed him and played with him.

On Tuesday he went missing while we were having our photos taken.

We couldn't find him anywhere.

We looked for clues outside and found some paw prints in the mud.

We decided to make some Lost Pip posters and put them up around school.

 Luckily Mr Smith read them and found Pip in the garden.

It was such a relief to get him back. We had all been so worried !

It was great to meet Turbo the tortoise.

He was a bit slow because he was cold and is getting ready to hibernate.

He is 22 years old, tortoises can live until they are one hundred years old!

Thank you Daddy for teaching us all about how to look after a tortoise.

Lily's dog Snoop was also very well behaved.

She likes to go in the river for a paddle but doesn't like to have a bath afterwards!

 

Thank you Lily's Daddy for bringing Snoop into school.

The final dog of the week was Lily's dog Poppy who loves to eat salmon and ham.

Thank you Lily's Daddy for taking the time to introduce us to Poppy.

Poppy is only one and a half, just a puppy.

Hope you all have a fun half term and manage to get some rest.

Week beginning 10th October

This week we have really enjoyed learning about the season of autumn. Thank you to everyone who went on autumn walks last weekend, we had lots of leaves, conkers, acorns, berries and twigs to support our learning. We went on a walk around our school to spot signs of autumn such as fallen leaves.

We read the story The Enormous Turnip. We loved acting it out and joining in with the words.
As we were finding out about the Harvest Festival on Tuesday, we had lots of different vegetables in foundation such as potatoes, pumpkins, swede and different types of squash. We used them to learn about weighing, we sketched them and we investigated what was inside of them.
Here are some other exciting moments from our week including our Sprouts Drama Workshop and finger gym! smiley

Phew! What a busy week!

Thank you to the parents who attended the Phonics and Reading Workshop, we hope you found it useful.

Next week is pet week! We have some dogs, guinea pigs and a tortoise visiting us, if you have a pet you would like to bring in to school to tell the children about please let a grown-up know.

We will be using cardboard / plastic boxes and packaging to make pet beds, as well as cotton wool, hay, etc. If you can send these things in to school that would be greatly appreciated! frown

Thank you for your continued support.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Week Beginning 3rd October

We have based our learning this week on our favourite toys.

We all wrote an invitation to our favourite toy and the toys were very excited to come to the picnic on Friday.

We played lots of games and ate some special treats.

Note to Sunshine class parents

We have been finding the cloakroom a bit of a squash and a squeeze in the mornings.

On Friday we tried coming in to school through the year two door and found that it was a lot better for the children.

We will continue to use the year two door and I will when possible come out a few minutes before the bell goes to let the children in before the year two children. Thank you for your support in this matter. smiley
