What a great first week back we have had. Our new topic is Minibeast Madness and we started off the week by having a minibeast hunt in our Sensory Garden. We celebrated Earth Day by planting some vegetable seeds and we will be watching them grow in the coming weeks.

In Literacy, we have been reading the poetry book Minibeast Madness and have written our own fantastic rhyming and acrostic poems in groups. We have painted our own minibeasts and made some paper plate minibeasts to make our classroom bright and colourful.

The children did some great throwing and catching in Games today and, of course, we have been doing lots of maths. A busy week!

Well done to our Learners of the Week this week – Coby and Patrick. They have done some great learning together this week and have shown a great attitude to learning. Thank you both.

Next week your child will bring one of our brand new reading books home, targeted to your child’s reading level. They can also choose to bring home any of the colour banded books that they already select from, which are also at your child’s level.

I have added an overview of our learning this half term.

A plea – please could your child bring in any of the actimel-shaped probiotic drink containers (which will be magically transformed into minibeasts)! and any cardboard egg boxes, please?
