What a lot of lovely sunshine we have seen this week – it’s starting to feel like Spring! We enjoyed our time in the woods looking for signs of Spring and then throughout the week we have been drawing some lovely daffodils – do you like our pictures? The adults thought that the children had found a stash of chocolate snacks in the woods – ‘Look! Come see!’ A small group of children excitedly called out, ‘We’ve found Kit Kats!’ – We hurried over to see the group excitingly pointing out catkins on the trees – What a find! We also had a group of children making ‘Silly Soup’ in the woods- such a fun game! We have been playing the game in class with the ‘sh’ sound – only adding things to the pot that have the ‘sh’ sound. Silly Soup is a early phonics game to get us thinking about and identifying specific sounds.
On Monday Rabbi Nick came to talk to use about the festival of Purim which starts next week. Have fun celebrating if you do!
In Maths we have been looking at measuring again – measuring using scales and also using meter sticks, rulers and tape measures to measure our shadows, our height, the length of the TV – turns out you can measure almost anything. We also had a group of children use the measuring sticks to make a triangle – which became the roof of a house- which became a ‘spiky house for dinosaurs’. We love seeing imaginations growing.
Have you heard about the beans we are trying to grow – like the bean in our story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’? We are conducting our own experiment on what they need to grow and we are taking turns to take pictures of the beans growing.
Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.
Take care, stay safe and have a lovely weekend!
