Down in the Jungle!

This week we carried on with our jungle theme. We made a superb jungle scene from a shoe box showing a lot of independence in choosing our resources.

In maths we moved on to taking away. We used lots of techniques to help us master it. 

In literacy we explored online books on the iPads and had fun listening to stories being read on the topic of jungle animals. 

In free flow this week we made chameleons, snakes and parrots and searched for rhyming words in the jungle! We fed monkeys bananas with words using the sounds we have been studying. All in all we had a fun week learning!

World Literature Week

This week the children enjoyed listening to stories ready by parents each morning (thank you parents!). The story we studied was 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson. We sequenced the story and learnt a new song all about the Gruffalo. In crafts we made Gruffalo claw biscuits and puppets of all the characters. we enjoyed our parade at the end of week, displaying all our hard work and dressing as our favourite book character. At the end of the week we all got a new book in our class book swap.
