We have had a fantastic couple of weeks in Cerise class! We are continuing to explore our topic ‘We are Environmentalists!’ In English we have read the book ‘The Big Book of the Blue’ and ‘Tiddler’ where we have explored different types of animals you would find in the sea and learnt lots of facts and information. We then created our very own big book of blue, where we collected all of our drawings, writing and creations. We are very proud of our books! We have now started to retell the story of ‘Tiddler’ the story telling fish who is always late for school. We have been sequencing the events in the story and focusing on using vocabulary from the book, ready to use in our writing next week.
We’ve had so much fun in maths! We have loved learning about numbers to 20. We’ve used large 10 frames and lots of practical activities to help us deepen our understanding of numbers to 20.
Something very exciting happened in reception this week. The children were exploring the wooden logs when they found some very interesting and special animals. At first the children thought they were caterpillars, however when we did some further research, we found out they were stag beetle larvae and can take up to 7 years to grow into adults. We spoke about how stag beetles were endangered and decided that the playground log might not be the safest place for them. We made a sign to help keep them safe until they could be safely relocated to our forest school.
