Final week in Year R!

The children spotted some eggs that had hatched over the weekend along with some footprints. They all came up with some ideas of what they could have been.

We then enjoyed a dinosaur workshop where we learnt about all the different dinosaurs and their sizes. The children then spent time fossil hunting.

The children also got to meet two life sized dinosaurs which was amazing for all to experience!

In RE the children learnt about the sacrament of the Eucharist and listened to the story of the Feeding of the 5000. The children then enjoyed baking their own bread and tasting it.

We hope you all have a wonderful summer break.

On Monday the children had a fantastic time playing tennis games to celebrate the Wimbledon tournament. They also enjoyed strawberries and cream!

We also enjoyed taking part in a music lesson with singing and rhythm clapping.

The year R children also shared their liturgy with Father Jeremy.

We hope you all have a great weekend.

In maths this week the children have been exploring weight. They have used the scales to compare objects. They had a great time with this and recorded their findings!

Another fun week!

The children enjoyed listening to the story The Zoomers. They had fun creating their own animals by mixing two together and talking about what they like to eat.

In maths the children have enjoyed engaging in solving subtraction problems.

In the outside area the children also enjoyed working together to build tall towers and then watching them fall down.

We hope you have a great weekend.

On safari

This week Year R have been on safari! We have on a safari bus and seen some African animals through our binoculars… the children’s favourites were the cheetah and the elephant.

Here are some examples of their work after watching the safari.

The children also enjoyed writing newspaper reports to explain about the animals that we had seen in Waterlooville after they escaped the zoo! We came up with ideas on how we could help the zoo capture them to take them back to safety.
