Number Posters

In our maths sessions during the last 2 weeks, we have been learning about the numbers 1 - 10.  We have counted objects, sounds and actions for each number and practised writing each digit.  Today, we made posters showing some of the different ways of representing each number.  We think they look very bright and will be useful when were are doing maths activities in the classroom.

Dinosaur Bones

This week we have been continuing our learning about fossils and dinosaur bones.  In our craft activity this week we have been cutting, arranging and gluing paper straws to look like the bones of dinosaurs.  Some of our art work has been displayed in the classroom:

We're going on a Dinosaur Hunt

Today the children listened to the story 'We're going on a Dinosaur Hunt' and joined in with the actions.  We then went on a dinosaur hunt in the playground; looking for and following numbered dinosaur footprints.  We pretended to go through the swamp and the forest, we ran through the rain storm and swan across the river.  When we got to the end of our dinosaur hunt, we found a large nest of dinosaur eggs - made of ice.  We talked about how we might get the baby dinosaurs out of the eggs by warming them up with our hands and breathe.

We will be continuing to learn about dinosaurs for the next few weeks.


This week all the children have been to the hall to eat their school lunches or packed lunches from home.  The children have been very good at queueing up patiently and very polite when asking for their meals.  They have generally eaten well and enjoyed chatting with their friends.  After lunch the children have played in the playground and on the pirate ship; supervised by their dinner ladies - Mrs Goodman and Ms Garrett.  Well done children, we're very proud of you!

Our Self-Portraits

This week we have looked at our reflections in a mirror and tried to paint our self-portraits.  We also had a go at writing our names under our pictures.  We tried really hard to hold the pencil correctly and copy our name cards carefully.  Do you like our work? We are very proud of it.

Our First Week at School

The children have all settled well into school and have enjoyed their first week of school.  They have re-connected with their friends from pre-school and nursery and have begun to make new friends too. They have played in the classroom, conservatory, practical area and outside and enjoyed exploring the pirate ship and trim trail.  We have also painted pictures of our faces and had a go at writing our names.
