This week we have been talking about being kind and respectful. The children were fantastic in assembly and sat really well, some children even put their hand up to answer questions. Our story The Helpful Hedgehog supported us to talk about how it is nice to have a friend and be kind.
We have been learning about shapes and introducing some new shapes such as oval and hexagon.

This week we have enjoyed learning about Handa and all her fruits.
Thank you to everyone who brought fruit to school the children were fantastic and chopping everything up and making fruit kebabs.

The children have all enjoyed going to the moon and having a picnic. They have liked making rockets out of cardboard boxes and it was very funny when Logan got stuck in a box and then Miss Maxey got stuck in a box!
In maths we have been sorting by colour and lining up different objects.
We have also been matching the correct amount to the number.
This week we have enjoyed our story Guess How Much I Love You. We have all shared how much we love our families, friends, teddies and going to the park. The children have retold the story using our props and have drawn their own pictures about the story.
In maths we have been making lots of patterns using coloured blocks, buttons, shapes and printing using cotton reels. We have used the shapes on the light box to make patterns.
We used our hare from the story to introduce positional language. We played the hare on the chair!
Then we went in the garden and talked about where we were.
Charlie is at the top of the slide and Emily is at the bottom.
