Child initiated learning and sharing ideas in the continuous provision: one boy decided to design some parking bays for the toy cars to fit into and enlisted the help of his friend. They used the rulers to measure the size of each car and space that they would need. They had lots of fun parking their cars in the spaces afterwards.
In maths we continue to learn how to add and subtract numbers up to ten and twenty. We have also been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and making rockets.
This week we have been practising our handwriting patters. We have also learned the phonemes j, v, w and x. Can you help us practise at home?

Our chicks are having lots of fun and have had lots of visitors through school. They are getting bigger every day.🐣
Maths through Science: We carried out a super investigation where we tested how different toy cars would move across various materials on our ramps. We estimated the cars that would travel the furthest distance and those that would travel the shortest distance. We also discussed why some cars traveled further and easier on different ramps. Some cars had lines on the wheels and some of the ramps had wool covering the surface. Aiden was our super investigator of the day. He said 'the car with the lines will travel slower because the wool from the ramp will get stuck in the wheels and slow it down.'' He was right! Clever boy!
We worked together to make a friendship poster for Friendship Week. We had lots of nice things to say about each other.
We love our new Mud Kitchen: thank you Mr Lord.
Fun in P.E. We have been learning The Penguin Dance with Miss Boyle.
Children in Need: We had lots of fun.
