Happy Friday!

As we continue to be intrigued by the lifecycles of our caterpillars, who have now spun their cocoons and are ready to be transferred to their net, we moved on to a new topic – Sports.  In the cabin we have been talking about and trying to recreate a piece of artwork by Joan Miro, “Running Man” and outdoors, our Sports Day events practice has begun.  We are looking forward to taking part in the whole school event next Friday at 10.45am – meet you on the school field.  Cyril Squirrel has had us laughing once again during Phonics as we tried to play bingo with him – not that easy when he says all his words wrong.  We then enjoyed playing with some of Cyril’s squirrel friends with the Music game of “Let us Chase the Squirrels” where the squirrels had to escape from the old oak tree.  Erin chose our Dough Disco song this week – Havana, Camilla Cabello https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSMA_4lhWeM (skip to 2 minutes in for the actual song).  We have been circling our arms up high and taking our dough around the globe to meet Camilla in America.  I don’t know about you but my arms are aching this week, surely my handwriting will have improved!  Next week, Evie’s choice  which is perfect for our sporting event.  In Maths we have been learning all about the triangle – can you tell your families this weekend about what you know about the triangle?  There is one thing I know, they are very tricky to find outdoors so we made our own and played a game of hide and seek with our friends.  In Forest School Mrs Allen has been having fun teaching you how to play “What’s the Time Mr Wolf” and a throwing game with hoops and beanbags, alongside practising our three races for next Friday!

A message for parents – please ensure you take the time this weekend to look at messages on parentapp.  Alongside sports day, there is a lot happening and organised as a whole school for the Queen’s Jubilee.  Look out for the clothing (Wednesday and Friday), coin (all week) and food (Friday) requests.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
