We have been busy learning about 2D shapes in our maths work this week. A 2D shape is a flat shape! We recognised triangles, rectangles, circles and squares. We talked about the properties of shapes and looked carefully at them in different orientations and sizes.

We have loved exploring the forest during the change of season! We have made bird feeders, leaf animal pictures, explored for signs of autumn and independently explored. We enjoy trying new things and taking risks when exploring climbing, digging and swinging!

We have been extremely busy in Owl class learning lots of new things and settling into our classroom. We have been writing all about our families, our likes, dislikes and hobbies. We have been working really hard to ensure our letter shapes are neat, our writing is on the line and to remember to use finger spaces. This week we have had an exciting box delivered.....we cannot wait to see what is inside! Can anyone guess??

A great morning had by staff and children! We were so pleased that the rain held off and we could enjoy a morning packed full of activities! The children were extremely well behaved and worked brilliantly together in their coloured teams showing support and great teamship. A big thank you to all that came to support, it was a fabulous turn out!

The children visited their new classrooms and teachers on handup morning. They had fun exploring their new environments and were keen to engage in learning linked to their new class names of Owls and Bumble Bees
Don't forget to help your child complete their summer challenge:

All about me bag!

Your summer challenge is to fill the bag with 5 things that you can use to tell me about yourself (only 5 things, no more, no less)

The rules are:

·        Decorate the bag as you wish

·        All things must fit INSIDE the bag

Please bring your filled bag in on your first day in Year 1 so that we can get sharing!

Thank you so much to all that came, it was such a brilliant turn out which made it special for both the children and adults. 
From football skills, to boat building, to rope swings, the children had so much fun and we hope the grown ups did too!

Will anyone stop that Evil pea?!

The children were animated by the discovery of trapped veggies! They were keen to make some super observations of their findings and write lists of all of their findings!
The children used their imaginations to think of ideas of how they could rescue the veggies and stop Evil Pea from causing more chaos!
