Class text: Julian is a mermaid
Last week we were reading Julian is a mermaid and used that text to create lots of fun learning activities.
In our role play area we created some beautiful outfits to express ourselves.
We also used our phonics knowledge to write descriptions of some of the characters in the book.
In forest school we collected leaves, twigs and nuts to create our own head dresses like Julian.

Commotion in the Ocean
This week we have been reading Commotion in the Ocean and learning about and reading poems.
We have been taking part in lots of fun activities.
In PE we have been doing athletics and we are getting prepared for sports day!
Our outdoor role-play area turned into a deep sea diving area and we explored it and wrote about what we found lurking in the deep, dark sea.
Our indoor role-play area became an aquarium.
We have also been learning about how to keep our oceans clean, and why it is important to keep the oceans clean and the creatures safe.
The Queens Knickers
Last week we read The Queens Knickers, this served as a great stimulus for our class discussion on NSPCC PANTS.
We built London landmarks using blocks, we also used Lego and used tracing paper to draw the building outlines.
We decorated our own pants, using collage and paint. We also decorated our own 'VIP' (Very Important Pair) like the Queen had, we decorated these using a choice of collage, paint and colouring.
We used our role play area to dress up as royalty, we also had lots of fun performing plays for children in the class.
We had posh Tea parties, and followed written instructions in our mud kitchen to make cakes.
On Friday we celebrated the Coronation with lots of fun activities.
We made ourselves beautiful crowns and had cake in the hall.
