French Day:
During French day we looked at the artist Vincent Van Gogh and then we had a go at drawing and colouring our own using pastels.


Jonathan's Jungle Roadshow:
Buttercup Class had a really wild adventure today meeting lots of amazing animals from around the world.

We met the cutest baby tarantula - who was only 6 weeks old; we met a really big snake called Bourbon and a millipede called Millie. There was a glow in the dark scorpion and Australian Stick Insects that thought they were leaves!

It really was the best morning we've had yet!


September 30th
In Maths this week we have been comparing number sentences using cubes. We worked in pairs and made the same total but we each used a different number bond to make them.

This meant we could see that even if a number sentence is different, the totals can be the same.



In Science we have been focusing on Animals including Humans. This week, we have been looking at healthy eating, what it is and why we need to think about what we are eating.

We had a taste tasting afternoon and enjoyed various healthy snacks including rice cakes, raspberries and brown bread.


October 7
This week in Maths, we have been adding and subtracting 10s.

We have used Base 10 and counters to see what happens when we add multiplies of 10.

We did find it tricky but we gave it our best shot!
