Had great fun celebrating the royal wedding today with confetti, party hats and ballroom dancing in the hall. In Literacy we innovated the story of Elmer and created a new story called Lily the Red-eyed Treefrog.
In Maths we have been completing mixed addition and subtraction calculations with the support of counting objects.
Have a super weekend
What a fantastic week! We started off with a trip to Bristol Zoo on Monday and took part in a rainforest workshop, where the children came face to face with snakes, madagascan hissing cockroaches and other weird and wonderful creatures. In class we have been writing recounts of our trip using picture prompts to help us structure our work. In maths we have been looking at repeating patterns and we have created some lovely snakes with repeating patterns on them. We used corks, foam and other objects dipped in paint to help us print our patterns. PE has now moved to Wednesday and is being led by coach Akeel and his friend Davis...we are working on throwing skills and athletics in preparation for sports day next term! At Forest School we made camouflaged insects from wooden pegs and natural resources and hid them around the Forest. Some of these insects were so well camouflaged that it was a job to find them before coming back to school!
Finally I would like to thanks all the parents / carers who made this week's activities possible. The zoo, printing snakes and going to Forest School would not have happened without you and we are so lucky to have you
Have a fantastic weekend and see you all on Monday...please have a look at our photos below

So far this term we have managed to crash our jeep in the Amazon Rainforest, make a giant map of the Amazon and write letters to a character called 'The King of Necklaces, asking him to fix our jeep. We are really excited about going to Bristol Zoo next week and we already learnt loads of things about the animals that live in the rainforest. I asked the children what they had enjoyed learning about so far.
"Elephants poo 18 times a day!"
"Elephants grab leaves from the trees with their trunk!"
"Frogs can jump!" "Some frogs can glide!"
"I like drawing pictures of the rainforest."
"Liked making the spider monkey masks."
"I liked learning about poisonous snakes"
"Some snakes can fly (glide) like a bird."
"Some lemurs can jump really high in the rainforest"
Looking forward to more rainforest topic, the zoo and Forest School next week
Have a good weekend
