Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

12th May 2023

Hello Everyone,

During our science topic we have been continuing to learn all about plants. We looked at different kinds of seeds.  Some seeds have been eaten by animals, the animals poop them out and they start to grow.  Some seeds are blown in the wind and some seeds have special hooks on them that stick onto animals and us, then the animals take them to a new place to grow.  We also saw that tiny, little seeds can grow into big plants and trees.  We planted our kindly donated sunflower seeds and we are taking good care of them and watching them grow.


In maths we have been learning all about halves being 2 equal parts of a whole. It would be great to have a practise halving practically at home.


English has been all about the story of Rumpelstiltskin, making puppets and thinking about other boastful things the miller might have said. 


In Geography we have been exploring maps and the keys on maps. We drew a map of our playground (just before the thunderstorm!!), spotting all the different permanent/semi-permanent features and giving them our own key.  After the thunderstorm, we talked about how thunder and lightening happen and watched a video on it, just to reassure everyone that it is safe.


Our new Little Wandle Ebooks have been posted onto our accounts today, please check them out if you are able.


Our marble challenge this week has been won by the Crocusl team with a score of 44, wow!   Well done to the other teams who did amazingly too!


We hope you all have a super weekend!


Love from the Fox Class.
