Welcome to Curious Crocodile class. We love coming into school and especially enjoy investigating our outside garden area where we have much fun with the water area, our Mud Kitchen, looking at the pond, building with the large wooden blocks and using our climbing equipment.
We continue to learn new sounds everyday. We like to air-write these sounds with our 'magic writing fingers' and then write these on paper. We like the fact that Fred the Frog helps us with his Fred Talk and we help him to blend the sounds to make a word. Some of us are beginning to read text fluently and we love to practise our handwriting.
We have enjoyed visits from James Carter, the poet, and Michael Rosen, the author of one of our favourite books, 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'.
We enjoyed our trip to Godstone Farm on 28th April and the weather was kind to us. We saw many animals, but I think our favourite were the very noisy and hungry pigs! We had fun on our trip to the Horton Kirby Environmental Centre and, again, the weather was kind to us. We enjoyed using the fishing nets in the ponds the best and were so excited when we found three newts and saw frogs in the water.
Our next big step now is into Year 1. We are looking forward to this and to learning many more new things.
