Acorn Class have been learning all about the lifecycle of a frog this week. We have learnt that a frog lays eggs and these are called frogspawn. As a tadpole grows legs and the tail shrinks, they become froglets. After two years the froglet becomes an adult frog. We made our own frogspawn, which we have loved exploring. Our book of the week has been ‘Oi Frog’ and we have been learning about rhyming words. This week in phonics we learnt the sound ‘i’.
Next week we will be reading ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ and learning about how plants grow.
We have had a quacking week with our ducklings! We have watched them grow, eat, drink and sleep. They have explored our classroom, been for a swim in the water tray and we all had a chance to hold them too. They were very soft to touch! Today they left us to go to their new home. We have been promised photographs and updates on how they are growing and getting on in their new home.
This week we have learnt the phonics sound ‘t’, learnt the names of some 2D shapes and talked about why it is important to wash our hands, practising to wash them throughly with soap. We made some great ducklings from play dough too!
Next week we are learning about the lifecycle of a frog. Have a lovely bank holiday weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.
What a great first week back! The sun has been shining and we had some very special visitors arrive in Acorn Class...... duckling eggs. They arrived on Tuesday and we have been patiently waiting and watching them in the incubator. This morning we came in to find one had hatched! We were super excited! But guess what Acorn Class..... we now have 3 ducklings! Watch the video below of the third egg hatching. I will keep you all updated over the weekend with photographs of them. I can't wait for you all to see them on Monday.
We have also learnt the sound 'd', made junk modelling robots and talked about our bedtime routines. We have spent lots of time outside enjoying the sunshine this week. Please remember to bring in hats for when we are outside and don't forget to make sure your school jumpers are named too!
