Welcome to Eagles and Spoonbills
Welcome back to Term Five
This term we will be reading a fabulous story about a superhero called Superworm.
This term our topic will be minibeasts, we will be making minibeasts from clay, junk modelling and painting.
If you have time at home to make or paint different minbeasts please send them in we would love to have a minibeast art gallery.
We would also like to read other books about minibeasts so if you have some different ones at home please feel free to send them in. Please make sure that they have your child's name clearly written inside.
Our role play area is a Garden Center, if you have any plastic plants or some real seeds that you can spare please could we have them we are going to try and grow some different things in our garden.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to seeing you throughout the term.
The children joined Key Stage 1 for a fire safety talk. The lady firefighter showed us her special clothes. Some of the children were able to try on the clothes. We watched a video that showed us the danger of playing with matches.
We learnt a rhyme to help us remember this.
Matches, matches never touch.
They can hurt you very much!
World Book Day Celebrations
We all enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters. Eagles enjoyed a story from Mrs Clark Kray.
This week we have been creating actions for our story in English. In Maths we have been ordering in 2's and some children have ordered numbers up to 50! Well done Emily Rose Corn and Aleeya Belle Chambers who went to see Mr Pantling to show their fantastic achievements.
This term we will be reading the book On The Way Back Home by Oliver .
During this term our topic will be Space as this links to our story. We will also be creating lots of different models related to Space, making models of rockets, aliens and planets. If you have any books either fact or fiction, on this subject, that you think the children might enjoy please allow the children to bring these in to share. These books will be taken care of and returned with your child at home time.
This week we have been looking at estimation.
Our challenge was to estimate how many objects were in the jars and then count them to see how accurate our estimates were.
It was tricky for us not to try to count the objects before
we made our estimates.
We also tried to estimate which container had the most
amount of lego inside.
This term we will be learning about ZOG by Julia Donaldson.
In February we will also be learning about Chinese New Year and looking at illustrations from the story of Lin Yi's Lantern by Brenda Williams and Benjamin Lacombe.
We have been learning to write labels.
We have used our sounds to label the different parts of Zog's body.

fun exploring the frost and ice.
The children found an egg in the outside area.
Our Christmas production was Whoops-A-Daisy Angel.
Father Christmas came to visit us.
We had a Christmas party.
