This morning when we Came into class we found some giant footprints! We guessed they belonged to a dinosaur! We decided the dinosaur was looking for its egg and the baby.
This morning we talked about how big dinosaurs are. Our challenge was to use lots of different words to describe the dinosaurs size.
Our first job was to make a tall dinosaur shape and then a short dinosaur shape.
With the weather being very lovely today we spent lots of time outdoors. We played in the water and explored how we could move the water along the pipes. We also had a go at using the sound pipes to makes some noises by swinging them around. We learnt how we can use pipes to make our voices travel and we had lots of fun using the pipe telephones. We also made some gigantic dinosaur paintings by working together. We used different types of brushes and rollers to create some interesting effects and new colours. We had a great day outdoors!
This week our class have volunteered to look after the rabbits. We have to let them out in the morning and check they have food and drink. We also have to check their house is clean. At the end of the day we have to put them away to keep them safe. Each group is looking after the rabbits on one day this week so we all get a turn. Max and Cookie are very cute and we got to have cuddles too!
This morning we discovered a giant egg had been left in a nest in the classroom. The egg has hatched and there is nothing inside! Who does the egg belong to? Where has it come from? What was inside? We wrote our ideas down on our post it note and we left them on the nest. We shared our ideas with the rest of the class.
This week we have been learning about animals that live in the jungle. We watched some videos about the rainforest and we talked about the sights and sounds in the jungle.
We created a list of animals in the jungle and we wrote a sentence about what animals we could see and tried to describe them.
This half term we are learning about animals. We started by talking about pets and we read the story Dear Zoo. We wrote letters to the zoo telling them which animal we would like as a pet and why.
We used the iPads and books to learn lots of new facts about sea creatures and we wrote down our favourite one. Did you know a flying fish can jump for 3 metres! We had a try at jumping that far but we couldn’t do it.
We then looked at how some of the creatures under the sea move. Miss Battams put on some funny hats and we had a go at moving like that creature.
We then talked about the Rainbow Fish. We learnt that the rainbow fish’ most precious possessions were his sparkly scales. He shared them with us and we talked about what our most special or precious thing was, and we shared our ideas with the Rainbow fish.
