On Friday we read the book ‘Honey biscuits’ and thought we would have a go at making our own!

We talked about where ingredients came from and used them to bake a batch of our very own biscuits.

 

Hope you enjoyed the biscuits, we have the recipe if anyone would like to have a go making them at home!

The Elephants have been cooking pizza today!

We decided at the start of the week we would like to make a pizza! We spent a few days writing shopping lists for Miss Rooney and then today got to create our own.

We practised lots of important skills such as mixing, cutting, grating, rolling and kneading! We have been working our arm muscles hard, especially our shoulders, elbows and wrists. This will help us with our writing!

After all our hard work we took the pizza home to eat.
 

 

 

Can’t wait for next week to find out what else we might bake…

What an amazing term!

What a brilliant term Meerkats and Elephants have had playing and exploring.

Take a look at some photos of our Winter Walk earlier this week.

Miss Rooney & Mrs Clayton are so proud of all your hard work. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, see you in January!

We have been learning to add!

In our number time we have been learning that when we have two groups of objects we can add them together to find a total number. We have been doing this using lots of different objects around the classroom and also outside.

 

Maybe you could try to do some adding at home. You can use absolutely anything! Try using the words add and equals, maybe even for a challenge can you children write the total amount or even the number sentence?

Positional Language in Maths

Posted by tearlyyears | Posted in Blog Posts | Posted on 05-11-2017

Within our maths sessions last week we focussed on using position words- on top of, under, next to, in front of, behind, in between and inside. To help us use and understand these words we went on pumpkin hunts! Look at us finding them all over the school…

 

Maybe you could have a go at home at using positional language. How about hiding a favourite toy around the house and asking your child to explain where is, or how about hide and seek giving verbal clues like I am under something, or I am next to something red etc.

Don’t forget to fill in your ‘wow’ home slips when you have done this so we can see what the children have achieved with you at home!

Take a look at the different ways we have been learning to recognise and form numbers correctly. Maybe you could try some at home…

We had a wonderful day at the farm the children were fantastic and so well behaved. The children enjoyed looking at all the animals and finding out lots of information. They enjoyed their picnic lunch in the sunshine and then going into the hothouse to look at the fish in the pond. The children also had a fun time driving the toy tractors and playing in the play park. The adults were really proud of  how the children looked after the other children in the play area. Well done Unicorns.

We have had such a brilliant day at the farm! The teachers are so proud of Elephant class for their excellent super sensible behaviour today. We stopped to visit the animals and then had a lovely picnic lunch…we even got to play in the park for a while! After lunch we explored the grounds and got lost in the hedge maze. We have had a wonderful day in the sunshine, well done Elephants!
