The children had a FANTASTIC day at Matlock Farm park. Looking at, holding and feeding some animals. We want to say a huge thank you to Mrs Joesbury for rearranging it for us.
This week the children continued to learn about Florence Nightingale. We found out that she used to be called ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ as she would walk around at night to check on the soldiers. The children created their very own lamp.
In maths we have been looking at addition. We have introduced parts and wholes to the children. We will be trying out different ways to explore addition over the next few weeks.
We have been learning the story of The Enormous Turnip. We looked at and described a turnip. We acted out the story and then produced some fantastic writing of the story!
This week we have been looking at writing instructions. We read the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and then had a go at baking our own. The gingerbread tasted delicious well done everyone!
