Class 1 have had a busy but exciting week. We have been experimenting with salt dough and designing our own egg decorations. We talked about the different patterns we could use and the different colours. We have been outside to look at the different flowers growing in our garden, we then did some observational drawings of them with oil pastels and used them to make our Easter cards, completely independently. In maths we have been working with bigger numbers and trying different ways to help us (moving, crossing out, labelling). We have completed our phonics assessments for the half term and are very proud of how well we are doing. At Forest Schools we enjoyed going on an egg hunt, following on from our book of the week “We’re going on an Egg Hunt).

We hope you all have a lovely Easter break!

We are working hard with our sentence writing and have used this to write about different kinds of habitats.

At Forest School we enjoyed making pitta pizzas and making homes for the woodland creatures Mrs Turney had found.

In PSED we have been talking about ways we can help those who help us, and also ways we can help our friends. Everyone came up with lots of lovely ideas. We made ‘Help Pledges’, so hopefully some of you may have some helpers over the weekend!
