PE is on Thursday




Wow! What a busy but fantastic week we have had!

We have continued to learn about the life cycle of a chick and all about Easter. We have been very creative this week, using folks and potato mashers to create chick art work. We also created our own ‘design an egg’ using paint and cotton buds.

In PE we practised throwing and catching skills, we have got much better at this recently. We understand that we have to keep our eye on the ball and be ready to catch. We then played some games; we had a lot of fun!

Our number time sessions have been full of different activities this week; we started off our week learning about odd and even numbers. Can you remember some odd numbers? We then looked at using these numbers to share, we quickly realised that odd numbers cannot be shared fairly between 2 people. We used our division skills to share out mini eggs fairly and then we were allowed to eat them!

On Tuesday we had our last forest school session, we made popcorn and pancakes on the fire. We then used the rest of the time to do all the things we have loved about forest school. We have loved making dens, going in the hammock and digging for treasure. We will really miss going to the forest but we are looking forward to using what we have learnt in our school grounds.

On Friday we had our trophy assembly, it is always such a difficult job for the adults to pick who gets a trophy. We then made Easter nests using shredded wheat and melted chocolate…yum. We ended our day with an Easter egg hunt, it was eggcellent!! Have a lovely Easter break, see you on Tuesday 23rd April ready for our new term.
