17.11.17 Owl Babies and sharing our learning

We have enjoyed listening to the story 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell this week. We have explored the characters in our small world area and used the story as a prompt for our mark making. We learnt facts about owls, their habitats and other nocturnal animals. We even did subitising in Maths using owls!
We have been in our outdoor learning environment building with the giant Lego bricks. We sat on the bricks, pretending we were sitting around a camp fire and made up our own stories. The children took turns to add parts to the story. 
We used the metal detectors to hunt for buried treasure and discussed why some materials didn't make the detector bleep.
We used giant feathers to mark make in the sand, copied keywords and wrote our names. We also took turns with playing with the coloured rice, sieves and wheel. The rice came out of the wheel really fast!
We enjoyed sharing our learning with our grown ups from home this week and showing them around our classroom. Thank you to everyone for coming in to share this experience with the children and for the lovely comments you have written in their learning journeys.
To finish a very busy week we joined in with raising money for Children in Need. The children were very excited to show off their Pudsey ears, spots and colourful clothes! Thank you for all the donations for the charity.
Reminders:
 
  • Please make sure all your child's clothing still has their name clearly written in them.
  • Please can you check to make sure your child has a complete set of spare clothes in their PE bag.
