Look at what we have achieved last week…..

On Monday we celebrated (a slightly delayed due to snow) World Book Day! It was so exciting to see all the children in their costumes. We had a day celebrating books- we read lots and lots of stories and went on a book scavenger hunt. Some children from Willow class came to read with the class.

In Maths this week we have been learning about 3D shapes. We learnt about the difference between a 2D and 3D shapes. We then learnt the names and talked about the properties of some 3D shapes. We searched for them in our class room and built models using the different shapes.

In Phonics, Mrs M introduced a game that was a hit the whole week- tricky word bowling! We wrote tricky words on the skittles and then took it in turns to roll the ball and knock the skittles over. We had to say the tricky words we knocked over and then recorded our score. It got quite competitive!

On Thursday, we had another Forest School session and this time we had a fire pit. We whittled sticks and then put marshmallows on them. We then got to toast them on the fire! Yum, Yum, Yum! We also had a go at den building, mud painting and the tree swing!
