The beginning of May saw Exeter Class, along with the rest of the school, participating in 'Number Day' for the NSPCC. We wore clothes with numbers on and enjoyed lots of maths and number-based activities.
Matching the correct amounts to numerals.
Identifying odd and even numbers.
Making towers increasing by 1.
Practising number formation.
We have been learning about mini-beasts by reading some non-fiction books. We have been completing some writing of our own about mini-beasts.
These children have been enjoying practising their sounds together:
Jelly and Jellyfish!
We have continued to learn about the Christian creation story in RE and we talked about the difference between jelly and jellyfish. Jellyfish are alive and jelly is not - Christians believe God gave life to all living things, even jellyfish!
We investigated jelly and jellyfish.
These children are enjoying writing about the jellyfish that they have pictures of.
We had to rescue some sea creatures from jelly!
The jelly felt squishy and cold.
Our Wonderful Display
We completed some wonderful writing based on 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and mini-beasts. Take a look at our beautifully displayed work outside our classroom:
During our 'Subject Safari' week we took part in lots of creative activities. We looked carefully at some flowers and used paint, pastels or colouring pencils to create our own pictures:
Making the best of the weather...
It has not been a very sunny May, but we have had fun with the streamers in the windy weather.
We are now looking forward to our well-earned half-term break.
Check back in June to see more of our exciting learning!
