Look at our brilliant writing and mark making!

Forest Friday -Nature hunt can you find… An object longer than the line drawn on your bag? An object shorter than the line drawn on your bag? An object the same as the line drawn on your bag?

Our learning has been themed around ‘Firefighters.’ We shared information from non-fiction books. We explored how a firefighter helps people in the community. We discovered that firefighters need lots of equipment to help them do their job as well as equipment to keep them safe. Throughout the week we shared photographs and videos. Our key questions: Why do you think fire engines are red? What job does a firefighter do? What should you do if you see lots of smoke or flames coming from a building? Why do firefighters wear a uniform when they do their job? How do firefighters keep themselves safe?

Forest Friday - We used leaves, grass, sticks and stones to create nature patterns.

What does the tooth fairy look like? We used different materials to create our own tooth fairies.

Our learning has been themed around ‘Dentists and oral hygiene.’ We shared fiction and non-fiction texts. As a class we talked about what our teeth do and why we need to keep them healthy. We discussed what we do at home to look after our teeth. We shared our experiences of going to the dentist and what happens when they are there. We used a model set of teeth to talk about what happens if we don’t look after our teeth. We talked about how long we should brush our teeth for. We received a letter from the tooth fairy asking us to sequence instructions for brushing teeth. We sorted foods that make our teeth happy and foods that make our teeth sad. We explored and tasted some different foods that help our teeth stay healthy.

R.E. Our teacher told us that she had taken a photograph of her favourite place in school and that she had cut this photo up and left pieces in different areas in school. We went around school to find the six different pieces of her jigsaw. We pieced the jigsaw together to show where her favourite place was. Our teacher explained why she chose the reading area as her special place. We talked about about our favourite places at school.

We built words to match the pictures.

Our learning has been themed around ‘Builders.’ We shared fiction and non-fiction texts. We learnt about what builders do and life on a building site. We watched a video of a builder on site and saw them using different machines and tools to carry out their job. We explored a builder’s uniform and know they must dress safely for the job they do. We also explored the equipment a builder uses.
