We will be taking our knowledge gain from 2D-shapes to learn about 3-D Shapes next week.

In Writing, we wrote instructions for a cucumber and cress sandwich. We used our instruction openers to start our sentences for example; first, next, after, then finally. We used our instructions to make sandwiches and we all enjoyed tasting them.

We have made litter posters for the woods so are hoping that the weather will be nicer next week and we will be able to take part in 'Wellie Wednesday' on 18th March 1.20pm-3.00pm. I would very much appreciate if any parents are free to help. If you are available please can you let me know.
The children very much enjoyed taking part in Sport Relief. We learned a couple of playground games from other countries. It was great to see the children all in their sports clothes.They every much enjoyed the sport session today.
Please can you send in any empty 2L bottles for the class to use.
It was lovely to see the parents that came to parent contact and to share all the progress in learning. I look forward to see the parents that are coming Monday and Wednesday.
Have a lovely weekend!
