Children have been enjoying making music and exploring sounds in our new outdoor music area.

Writing table

It is great to see children beginning to choose to independently practice their letter formation.

More and Fewer

This week we have been exploring more and fewer, children have been counting on and back on number lines to find one more and one less.  On Friday children iced cakes with 'more' and 'fewer' decorations.  Please talk with your child about what we have been doing and encourage them to practise using this vocabulary.  

He's got terrible tusks  and terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws...

The children had lots of fun searching for the Gruffalo characters at Forest School last week.  Once they'd found them all, they used the masks in their own play and were inspired to make mice, snakes and Gruffalo's out of clay and natural materials.  They explored with the bug kits and some visited the frogs in the pond.

At snack time, we made batter and cooked pancakes over the fire.  Then, the children decorated them to look like the Gruffalo!
