Week ending 15th March 2019

Hello and welcome back to our class blog. We have had a really great week and we can't wait to share it with you. We started the week off by creating Superhero number sentences. We have been using language linked to adding and subtracting and thinking about adding two groups together. Here is a small sample of our wonderful work.
We have also been busy with our challenges. We had to lift out Superheroes from a spiders web using a pair of tweezers. This was great for developing our grip, hand eye co-ordination and perseverance. Well done everyone
We also developed our Superhero theme even further by using a range of different media and joining it together. Firstly, we had to design our Superhero, change and adapt materials and think about how we would join it all together. Problem solving at its best.
Another one of our challenges this week was to throw a ball at a series of stacked tins. We then had to count how many we knocked over and read the Superhero words on them. What a fantastic experience smiley
And not forgetting our amazing trip to Z Arts. We had the very best day out. We were immersed in the wonderful world of Julia Donaldson and it was so lovely to see the children share their knowledge of her books. As always, staff at the centre commented on the excellent behaviour of the children. We are very proud of our children.
On our return to school we have written a thank you letter and completed some writing about the very best bits of the day. We are planning on sending these to the Z Arts exhibition in the hope that some of our work might go on show. smiley
And finally, did you know that in every Julia Donaldson book there are pictures of the Gruffalo hidden? We do! We spent the afternoon looking through the many different books and trying to be a Gruffalo detective. They are hidden in some really tricky places. Have a try at home and see if you can find them. 
We hope that you have a wonderful weekend and we can't wait to see you all again on Monday when we have another week full of exciting Superhero themed learning challenges ready. Staff and children in Reception W
