I hope you all had a relaxing break and enjoyed the Easter holidays. Thank you to everyone who uploaded pictures on Tapestry of what you got up to and the lovely Spring walks that you went on over the two weeks.
This week we have settled back into school really well and I have introduced our new topic which is Growing and the World. Our story focus this week has been 'Jasper's Beanstalk' which was a real hit. This book is good for days of the week as well! We spoke about what we need for a plant to grow and the children realised that Jasper's beanstalk wouldn't grow if he kept digging at it, or mowing it! We have planted cress and it is starting to really grow which is great- the children are great at watering them every day after lunch!
In literacy this week we have recapped phase 3 words, been writing cvc word sentences and have written sentences about what happens in the Jasper's Beanstalk story. In maths this week we have looked at time and especially 'o clock'.
We had a great weaving workshop ran by two ladies from Braintree museum on Thursday which was great and thank you to the parents that attended our phonic session- we loved having you!
Next week our story focus will be The Enormous Turnip and we will be doing some more planting!
Please remember hats, sunglasses and sun cream next week if it is as warm!
Have a great sunny weekend Antelopes
