This half term began with pancake day. We wrote instructions about how to make a pancake before making and tasting them. Yum!
We then had our World Book Day Celebration in which we dressed up as our favourite story character and brought in our favourite book. We read lots of stories and did lots of reading activities.
After completing our Dinosaur topic about extinction we were very excited to move our focus to the 'living eggs' that arrived in school. We waited two days for the chicks to begin hatching in the incubator. Four girl and six boy chicks hatched to our amazement and we enjoyed caring for them over the following week and doing lots of chick related activities including making a hatching chick and writing about the chick life-cycle.
The chicks led us nicely into our Easter learning. Here is a photo of our Easter show and tell things.
We also planted beans following our reading of Jasper's beanstalk and Jack and the Beanstalk.
In maths we compared numbers to 20, practised addition and subtraction, explored pairs of numbers that make 5,6,7,8 and 10 (number bonds), looked at coins and their values, told the time to o'clock and described positions including using left and right.
