Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero
We walked to our local post box to post a letter to the King on his coronation!
As part of our I spy topic we are finding out about our town. We found the road sign for our school!
We read the story “ let’s go on a walk”. We went for walk in our school grounds and did plenty of noticing. We looked for colours, shapes, letters and numbers, things on the ground and things in the air!
We have loved making maps of our own in the continuous provision!
We created our own maps of the classroom and labelled them after listening to the story ‘Martha maps it out’.
We looked our town and the different features within it. We recognised lots of the landmarks around Poynton and had a go at drawing them!
Our class caterpillars have arrived!
We made Easter egg nests- they were delicious 😋
We enjoyed programming the beebot to join numbers that make 10.
We played a game sorting the pictures into the different senses that we use to detect them.
Today we used our sense of taste and tasted a variety of foods. We created a chart to show which was our favourite!
WE have been busy learning about our senses this week. We sniffed the pots and tried to work out what it was in them just from their smell!
We played a guess the sound game to use our sense of hearing.
This afternoon we were learning about keeping our teeth healthy. We discussed what foods are good and bad for our teeth, and how to brush our teeth properly.
This afternoon we identified domestic animals from clues, then we each talked about what pets we had. Finally we matched animals to their young.
We learnt about Chinese New Year today and how this festival is celebrated. We enjoyed exploring the artefacts and creating lucky red envelopes with a penny inside to take home!
We read the story 'Handa's Surprise' and decided to taste a variety of fruits and vote for which was our favourite
Our Arctic tuff spot prompted lots of discussions about which animals live there and the weather.
This week we made porridge, just like the 3 bears in our story 🐻! We chose a topping of either banana, raisins, honey or blueberries.
Today we celebrated Call to Earth day where the Eco Warriors gave an assembly about how we can look after the oceans.
Today following on from our maps, created a route for a friend to follow. We put out different coloured cones, drew coloured dots that matched the colours and our friend had to follow the code.
We have read th Everywhere Bear this week. As part of that we made maps of our classroom and hid the Everywhere Bear on our maps!
We enjoyed our walk looking for signs of autumn.
After reading "10 ways to help the world" we made seed bombs to plant to grow wildflowers. This will encourage the bees that are so important for our world.
This week we have been busy sorting the rubbish for recycling. We decide what the items were made of and sorted them accordingly.
We discussed whether the transport was old or new. We gave a reason for our thoughts, “ This one’s old as it’s made from wood”
Today we went on a material hunt in our classroom for objects that are made of more than one material. We talked about what materials we could see on the objects and why they might be made of those materials, for example, a rattle is made partly of metal as it makes a nice jingly sound and wood might be used because it is strong.
What material can we use to make a raincoat?
We have been finding out about different materials and today we sorted things that were made out of wood and other materials.
We played a game with the feebly bag to guess the objects inside. We had to feel and describe the object and we all guessed what it was. We talked about if the object felt hard, soft, smooth or bumpy. We sorted the objects by the material they are made of. We sorted plastic, wood, metal, and soft fabric. Some if us hunted around and found other materials to describe.

History of teddy bears. We have been sorting the old and new bears
