A Visit to our Local Shop 

The Sunflowers and Daffodils have been learning all about money. They have looked at different coins, and talked about the value of them. They had 50p each to take to the local shop to spend on a treat of their choice. They used their problem solving skills to work out which treats they could afford! They are super shoppers!

Run, rabbit. Run, rabbit. Run, run, run!

The Daisies went on an Easter hunt – they were really excited. The Daisies had lots of fun pretending to be bunnies (they had even more fun eating their chocolate egg surprise)!

Super Springy Spring Walk!

The Daisies skipped around our school to find signs of Spring. We found bumblebees, daffodils, tulips but we didn’t find the missing lamb!

Superstar Alert 

This Daisy is AMAZING! She is fantastic at listening for first sounds. She drew her own tooth, used excellent cutting skills and then told me that it begins with the ‘t’ and practised saying the pure sound perfectly.

Yo Ho Ho! A-Pirating we’ll go! 

The Sunflowers and Daffodils LOVED their pirate topic. They received a very special message in a bottle from ‘Captain Beastlie’ who asked them to become real pirates! They had to learn how to talk like a pirate, make their own pirate maps and walk the plank! They planned a birthday party for Captain Beastlie and collected data to find out what everybody wanted to eat. They prepared the food and gave Captain Beastlie the best birthday EVER! Take a look at what else they got up to.

Shapes are everywhere!

The Sunflowers and Daffodils have been finding 3D shapes in the outdoor learning area. I wonder if you could help them to find a sphere, cone, cube, cuboid, cylinder and square-based pyramid at home? 

They are so clever!

We have been so good this year, so Father Christmas gave us a little visit. We had cuddles, he asked us what we would like for Christmas, and he even gave us an early present.
