This week the children have been learning about time. We started by reading the story 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' and talked about the times on the clock as we read. All the children had their own clock and were able to show all the o clock times confidently. We put various clocks in order and discussed what we do at different times of the day. Some children also learnt to tell the time to half past the hour. We also thought about what we could do in 2 minutes. The children counted how many jumps they could do or how many times they could write their names. 
This week we have also asked the children to carry out a piece of writing independently in their books. All children can now write at least one sentence independently, and many children can write a number of sentences which is fantastic. Some of the more able children wrote the beginning of a story based on Goldilocks and her future adventures after she met the bears. The children used great openers and thought about the language and structure of the story. 
The children have also been busy creating beach scenes with collage and used sand for the beach. 
For PE the children went over the road to use the field and had a wonderful time with all the PE equipment. 
Many of the children played in the mud kitchen making repeating patterns with sticks, stones, leaves and flowers. 
We look forward to our farm trip next week!
