This week we have been learning about the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We have been using our sound knowledge to read the story and we have been ordering events in the story in groups.
In maths, we have been learning all about capacity. We have been exploring which containers hold the most water and we discovered that taller containers do not always hold more than shorter containers. We have also been measuring capacity with oats using scoops and bowls we have been estimating how much a container will hold and then finding out as a class.
The children have had the opportunity to explore capacity during free flow sessions this week by making ‘sleeping potions’ for the giant. Some of the children may have brought their magical potion home.
We have been enjoying watching our sunflowers grow and looking after them – don’t forget about the competition!
Some of the preschool leaders have been visiting school with the new children starting in September, the children have enjoyed showing them round the base.
With the sunny weather, please make sure your child always has a sunhat and a raincoat in school.
Looking forward to seeing you all at sports day on Monday, please remember that your child needs to come dressed in their PE kit, please refer to your letter about sports day for more information.
