We have been very busy this week learning all about Hansel and Gretel in our English lessons. We have done some brilliant story maps and have thought very carefully about sequencing the story. We have also started our new Phonics groups and have been enjoying our new Read Write Inc scheme. In PE we have been working on sending and receiving different sized balls.
We held our Parent's Meeting on Tuesday 18th September, thank you everyone that attended!
We have had another busy week in Tenacious Toads this week. In our maths lessons year 1 have been thinking about counting, ordering and grouping numbers to 10 in different ways. Year 2 have been looking at place value of 3 digit numbers and have been counting in 10s.
For our topic Street Detectives we have written questions about what we want to find out this term. We have been grouped according to our interests and have created a pic collage of what question we are going to be investigating.
We have a very exciting week, this week. It all started on Monday when we had a special 'Houses and Homes' day with Mr Snelling. We sang about the wise man who built his house upon the rocks, we found shapes in houses, we made structures out of dough and straws, we wrote some beautiful descriptions and we played The House that Jack Built.
Decide for yourself if you believe him...I'm not sure I do.

We have been so excited about the story of The Three Little Pigs, one of our favourite things to do is re-tell it. We make up character voices and have lots of actions too. This week, we draw some beautiful story maps, here are some of them.
The first week of a new half term and we have hit the ground running. The most exciting thing about this week is that we have started our nativity - The Inn Crowd. We have learned three new songs and are brilliant at spelling B-E-T-H-L-E-H-E-M.
It has been another busy week in the Tenacious Toads. This week we had a fabulous dance session with Mrs Sunman. Look at how flexible we are!
The Inn Crowd is coming along nicely. We are all frantically learning our lines, singing the songs and painting pictures for the backdrop. We have been so busy rehearsing and we can't wait to show you all our performance.
Cool Choir visited Mansfield Museum to sing 80's songs and listen to other schools sing their songs.
