Our favourite video this topic!
As part of our morning challenge we have been writing numbers as high as we can go! Look what some of us can do all on our own!
This week in our topic we have been learning about Reptiles. We have learnt they
- Lay eggs
- Have scales
- Are cold blooded
- Live in hot places
- Have 4 legs or no legs
- Have a back bone
Today we focussed on Chameleons. We watched a reptile video then a Chameleon video and recorded key information about the reptile. We learnt a Chameleon has 3 super powers
- It can look two different ways with its eyes.
- It’s tongue is 1 1/2 times bigger than its body.
- Some of them can make themselves invisible by changing colour.
For our arts and craft activity this week we are making chameleons.
After playtime Miss Irwin heard some magical bells. She could hear a Mystery reader coming. It was HAW!
He brought ‘The smartest giant in town’ written by Julia Donaldson. He read it very well and we loved the story especially when his trousers fell down!
Thanks H for being our Mystery reader.
So we came back to school today amd our brains have definitely grown. Miss Irwin said she could tell because we were so good at listening and getting on with our work.
Our new topic is Animals. We have loads of ideas for our new topic. This week we are using our information books to research about different animals and plan what we want to learn about them.
We have also started to make our new role play ‘Astbury Vets’. This morning we have been making some cages and seeing what equipment a vet needs.
We have also been playing with our new farm set which was donated by Mrs Ashun last term.
Some of us have said we have pets that we would like to bring in. This might be possible depending on the pet. If we have a pet at home and want to bring it in parents need to speak to Miss Irwin.
This afternoon we started our P.E for this term which is dance. We are starting to learn our routine for May Day. We practised skipping and counting to 8. We then practised a few moves in our sets. We were very good.
