This week we have been learning.....

UTW- Space

Our theme for the next few weeks is Space. We were excited to discover our new role play area- a Space Station. We learnt about what happens at a Space Station and the jobs astronauts do to go into Space. We learnt about the solar system and put our own planets in order, finding out facts about each one. We then proudly hung them over our Space Station so we have our very own Solar System! 

Maths- Height and Length

This week we have been learning how to compare and measure by height and length. We talked about how we can compare and learnt how to measure by counting how many objects long or tall the object is. We had fun putting our class in order of height. 

UTW- Forest Schools

This week was our second forest school sessions. We started the session by putting on blindfolds and spending time listening to the birds and other sounds around us. We then enjoyed exploring- today there was pond dipping, drilling, a rope swing, a tightrope and den building. We also learnt how to make a fire and enjoyed toasting marshmallow and making them into schmores.
