The children have enjoyed meeting Cosmo the preschool rabbit this week, feeding him, stroking him and helping to clean out his cage. They have been thinking about caring for pets.

We have practised our listening skills through a talking telephone game, time talking with an adult and our listening walk.

We have explored the Gruffalo story using puppets to retell it, a story sack for an interactive story, watched the story on the ipad and made some Gruffalo paws to eat! We then went on a bear hunt in the woodland area at school as the children wanted to see if they could spot the Gruffalo there too!

Next week: we’re off to London (check out the pictures on our website  to see our London town outdoor set up). The children will be thinking about their favourite landmarks, writing to the queen, looking at the language of time (Big Ben) and preparing treats for an afternoon tea.
