Under the sea and saving the planet

Greetings Penguins!

This week we started our Under the Sea topic and  have been learning about sea creatures, especially whales.

What facts have you learnt about whales?

There are lots of different kinds of whales; how many can you name

In our story Whale Magic the mummy and baby humpback whales had been swimming for a long time to try and get away from an oil slick.

Can you explain what an oil slick is to your adult? 

Oil slicks are terrible for the environment. What ways can we help take care of our world

On Tuesday we will be going on our trip to Vauxhall City Farm. If you haven’t yet handed in the permission slip and money for the trip please do 🙂 There are also a few more spaces for adults to come on the trip with us so if you would like to please let me or Ms Atkinson know on Monday. At the moment the weather forecast is predicating warm but not too hot temperatures (23 degrees c) and the possibilities of showers so suncream, sun hats and a light raincoat would all be a good idea 🙂 

It will be Yellow Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Friday. Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! Please bring trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE! 🙂

Love,

Dinosaurs and farm animals

Greetings Penguins!

It has been so great to be back with you this week and we have had lots of fun!

We finished off our dinosaur topic by painting dinosaurs and writing and talking about them for the science display we will be putting up in the entrance hall. We also named the dinosaur who hatched (Brian-Rosie) – we voted on the name so as to be as fair as possible – and excavated some dinosaur skeletons from ice! 

Can you explain to your adults all the different ways you melted the ice so you could free the dinosaur skeletons trapped there? 

In literacy this week we did some very important letter writing – we wrote to Mrs Peake asking if we could be allowed to go on a class trip to the farm! You wrote some super letters and Mrs Peake said that we can go! 

How do we start a letter? (you need to say who the letter is for, so you write ‘Dear‘ to ‘To‘)

How do you finish a letter? (by saying who the letter is from, so ‘From‘ or ‘Love from‘) 

What did you need to include in your letter to Mrs Peake about the farm trip? (we had to ask if we could please go, why we should be allowed to go and what we would enjoy there) 

On trip to Vauxhall City Farm will take place on Tuesday 4th July. If you are interested in being one of the adults accompanying us then please let myself or Ms Atkinson know ASAP. 

During our Big Talk time this week we learnt about where eggs come from and how it is important to think about what the lives of the hens who lay the eggs are like. 

Would you like to spend your life squashed up in a cage, unable to move

Watch the video again and discuss your thoughts with your adults. 

Next week we start our two week Under the Sea topic, you can get a head-start on the topic with our new playlist below:

 

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

It will be Red Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Friday. 

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! Please bring trainers or plimsolls for outdoor PE! 🙂
