Wow! What a busy half term it has been! It has been filled with becoming a doctor or nurse in our baby clinic, exploring the wilderness and even baking bread!

Parrot class have settled in really well and have adjusted to full days in school fantastically. Together we have made lots of new friends in and out of our class. We have enjoyed exploring our outside area, top favourites this half term have been the mud kitchen and climbing frames but especially the building zone that is equipped with hard hats and wheelbarrows!

Our topic this half term has been ‘All About Me’ . We have discussed our families, pets and even looked at pictures of the whole class when we were babies. As Autumn has arrived we have also visited the wilderness to look at changes that occur and have loved cutting open pumpkins and exploring what was inside.

As well as this, in literacy we have loved learning our sound of the day and we have been practising hard to write them. In maths we have looked at recognising numbers, together we created top tips for counting and their favourite topic so far, creating patterns!

​Have a lovely half term Parrots and I look forward to seeing you next week!

Another busy half term for Parrot class, filled with exciting immersion days and a sky high focus week were we learnt all about things that fly!

We loved working with our Year 1 buddies during focus week to create our own kites and we even got to test them out too. We also enjoyed exploring and testing materials to create a mini parachute (fit for a toy dinosaur!).
Parrot class are becoming super readers and we have enjoyed learning our weekly tricky words. For our healthy food week we read ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and tasted some new fruits that appeared in the book (I think our favourite was Passion Fruit!) Following on from that we investigated weight, capacity and size this half term and enjoyed finding out which fruit is the heaviest using our balance scales.
Our role play area this half term has been a cafe. We have loved ordering and paying for food and becoming a chef in our mini kitchen. We have loved learning about our topic ‘Fit as a Fiddle’ and why it is important to stay healthy and fit. Every day we have danced to a ‘five a day’ and some mornings got ourselves ready for the busy day with some relaxing yoga!

Have a wonderful Christmas holiday and I will see you all back in 2019!
