Fairy Dens

Over the past couple of weeks the children have turned our wildlife area into a ‘Fairy Garden’. We have seen some wonderful creations.

Last week children were busy building fairy dens and telling imaginative stories and this week the children have been dressing up, making their own fairies and generally being very creative!


Guinea Pigs

The children have enjoyed having Chocolate and Ginger in the outdoor area this week. We had a slight problem on Wednesday when Chocolate escaped so the children decided to build a new run for the guinea pigs.

The girls enjoyed lots of attention and ☀️


May Afternoon Welly Walk

The sun shone and we crossed over the Trit Trot bridge ( No troll!) and followed the footpath underneath the trees. It was so shady that Mrs Fisher and Alfie had to take off their sunglasses! 

We walked down the lane and crossed the stile onto the cricket pitch. 

Next we climbed over another stile and walked through some lovely, long, luscious grass!  

The grass was really tall…almost as tall as some of the children! 

We crossed another bridge and saw a toad sitting at the edge of the water. 

Sadly there was some pieces of plastic in the stream too ☹️

We walked beneath the trees and listened to the birds singing. We came out in the Churchyard

We walked back to school along Tinkle Street.

What a lovely walk! ☀️


Weather Forecasting 🌨❄️☀️🌈

We have been keeping an eye on the local and regional weather forecast this term. 

This week in Grimoldby it is mostly cloudy with some sunny spells.

As we looked at the weather for next week, the children were very excited  to see the rain/sun weather symbol as they thought we might see a rainbow 🌈

The children have also been in the role play weather forecasting studio, they have remembered lots of the vocabulary associated with the weather.


Problem Solving

We have been working hard to develop our problem solving skills. Lots of children were keen to help arrange the welly Walks groups. Children were able to confidently share out children into groups of 3, some children were in groups of 2 if the total number of children attending a Welly walk wouldn’t share into groups of 3. 

One Duck Stuck

We really enjoyed sharing this story in class, we found lots of rhyming words and then Charlie and Amber went on to work out how many animals had helped the duck?

Firstly they ordered the cards 1-10 and then started counting all of the animals, 2 fish, 3 moose, 4 crickets etc…. can you remember how many animals helped the duck?

We have heard some fantastic mathematical discussions over the past couple of weeks – keep it up children!
