Term 6

Our last term together this year - unbelievable!


This term we are exploring Colourful Cultures and will focus on the fascinating island of Madagascar.  We are thinking about the coast, forest, 4 different animals and what the people do.  We will learn a bit of Malagasy along the way!


Remember that our lovely trip to Weston is on Wednesday 12th June - everybody all day.  There's room on the bus if you would like to come with us.  


The children are getting ready to move to their new classes and meet new friends.  This is a big step for them so please let us know if there is any behaviour change at home so that we can support in Nursery. 

Week 1

We have had a fun week starting to learn all about Madagascar. We had a visitor from Madagascar, he hopped into Ms Loosley's bag when she was buying a new book for us called 'How to lose a Lemur!'

Larry the ring tailed Lemur has joined our class and we don't want to lose him! He was even in our class photograph on Wednesday!

We have started to look at all the creatures that live in Madagascar.  We have been looking at what creatures live in the sea around Madagascar. Did you know there is a Madagascan Rainbow Fish?

Don't forget it is our trip to Weston-Super-Mare next Wednesday. If you haven't signed the permission slip or paid please do so, it can be done online. we all very excited!

Larry the Lemur is going to come with us to Weston. I wonder if he will think it is like Madagascar??

Week 3

What a busy couple of weeks!

last week we had a fantastic trip to Weston Super Mare. We were so lucky with the weather, it didn't rain and we even saw some blue sky!!

We loved digging in the sand, burying our feet and playing football. We were so tired that lots of us fell asleep on the way home!

This week we have been learning about the Baobob tree that grows  in Madagascar. Mrs Abbas told us that they also grow in Sudan where she is from. She bought in some real Baobob tree seeds and made us a smoothie from the seeds. We all tasted it and thought it was delicious! Apparently it is very good for upset stomachs!
