We hope to see lots of you at our stall tomorrow to pick up one of our beautiful bird feeders that we have made for our Enterprise competition this week.
As you can see from some of our photos they required lots of concentration 🙂 .

Mrs Jackson and I would like to say a BIG thank you to all of our parents for supporting their children with all of the Phonics homework we have recently set. We can see a big difference with our children’s approach to Phonics now. We would also like to thank all of our children for trying their best in our Phonics lessons and we look forward to them showing off their decoding skills in our screening test next week. In the mean time pop on to www.phonicsplay.co.uk to play Buried Treasure, Dragons Den, Picnic on Pluto, Acorn Adventure and Cheeky Chimps.

Well done Brilliant Bears and Fantastic Flamingos

We are working hard to improve our story writing skills ready to write the middle and the ending of our version of the Hare and the Tortoise in this week’s BIG WRITE.
Watch Isabella’s Puppet Pals ending of the Hare and the Tortoise. What super ending phrase does Isabella use? Can you comment with some different story ending phrases?

Yorkshire Wildlife Park visit

Well done year 1, what a great day we had at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, yesterday. Luckily, the rain stayed away and the animals came out to play (did you spot my rhyming words there?).
I was so proud of you all when you stroked the wallabies and the giant millipede!

What was your favourite animal?

My favourite animal was the lazy leopard who just sat on his post and gazed at us.

Please comment and tell me what your favourite animal was.

Musical Bears

Every Wednesday Miss Stacey visits our class to deliver a music lesson.  We really enjoy her sessions and I am blown away by all of the musicians in our class, particularly by Arons and Gabriels and their families.  Arons and Gabriels’ family joined our music lesson this week to share a Polish song with us.  I’m sure you’ll agree the chorus is quite catchy.  Let me hear you sing ‘Hey ya!’ . . .

Hi Brilliant Bears!

I hope you have had a good Easter holiday and haven’t eaten too many chocolate eggs!  I look forward to hearing all about it in our sharing news time in literacy tomorrow.

I’m really excited for our trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park this Thursday.  Why not take the animal quiz on the website link below to help you identify some of the animals we will see.

Please comment and tell me how many animals you guessed correctly.  You could also write me a description of an animal to see if I can guess it too.

In science this term we have found out about the different groups of animals. We have found out about: mammals, insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish.

Use this BBC link to find out more about animal groups and why not test your knowledge with the quiz.
