We have had lots of fun during the Summer term so far. Bowlands Farm came to visit us and brought many different animals. The children were very brave giving some of them a gentle stroke, some children fed the animals. To celebrate Harry and Megan's wedding we participated in a garden party with cucumber sandwiches and scones. We have flown a kite and watched bubbles soar through the air on the very blustery day we had. Parents came in and helped us to have a lovely Mad-Hatters tea party where we shared stories and enjoyed some cakes, buns and biscuits. Jean from school came to see us and did some music sessions, she taught us some songs and we taught her some. We are happy to say these music sessions will continue for the rest of the term.
We are creating ways to represent number in maths. We have been trying to follow the shapes of numbers using felt tips and investigating making numbers with multilink cubes.
The book we are focussing on is 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', by Michael Rosen. We have set up the sand pit to represent the different scenes in the story and we have made sequencing cards to help the children retell the story in their own way. We are planning on going on a real bear hunt around the school grounds and having a picnic outside at the end of it.
Outside we have been planting sunflower seeds and the children have done a great job keeping them well watered in the hot weather. They are nearly ready for the children to take home where you can help your child continue to look after it. Don't forget to upload pictures of your beautiful sunflowers in bloom on Tapestry.
