This week in Maddi’s Class, we have been learning about animals and their homes and the book we are currently reading is ‘The Three Little Pigs’ which the children have loved! Some of the children have been re-enacting the story using pig and wolf masks and playing ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’.

We have built and made houses for the pigs using a variety of materials; ‘bricks’, straw, sticks, and had a pig tea party! We then had paint and shaving foam as ‘ice cream’ to scoop and explore. This was the most mess we have ever made and we all loved it!

This term we have also been able to explore outdoors more with the lovely weather, we have enjoyed ice lollies, water play, and painting on ice. Everyone has had a go on the bikes, and also enjoyed our climbing equipment outside.

Before the May half-term, we had caterpillars in class, the children loved watching the caterpillars grow whilst we had been reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story as a class. Our caterpillars then became butterflies!

We have had so many adventures this year and learnt so much! The children have developed some lovely friendships, and have enjoyed all of our activities, learning from each other and the adults. It has been a gorgeous year!
