February 2021

Developing our learning using 'Mr Gumpy's Outing'

Throughout February we have continued to immerse ourselves in the story 'Mr Gumpy's Outing' where we have been able to develop our own new characters and finally whole new stories.

Here is an example of one of our new character descriptions:


We have changed and developed story maps with our own ideas in order to tell a new story based on the same structure:


Parents and children have been uploading their oral stories on Tapestry - I am really proud of the amazing story-tellers we have in Exeter class!


Maths matters...

Once again, parents have been inventive in ensuring their children have all the necessary equipment to learn practically. Here is a great example of learning how to double using raisins:


Exeter children have also been exploring shapes and their properties and have been able to make some:


Marvellous maps

Beginning with the setting for Mr Gumpy we have explored where things are in relation to each other. The children have drawn their own maps, some for Mr Gumpy and some of their own local area. Here are just a few examples:



Super snow!

And finally, February brought us some very cold weather and the opportunity to experience snow!

At school we looked at our footprints and made snowballs and a snow man.


We even brought some snow indoors for the polar bears and penguins to enjoy a real arctic adventure!


It's been another great month for our learning adventures together - thank you Exeter class and families for your wonderful work.
