WOW! what a great day out we had today (sorry if Koalas are a little tired!) we have been having an AMAZING adventure. Our Trip started before we even left school, the children were extremely excited to be going on a coach; on arrival to Easton Farm park, we put our lunches in a barn to keep cool and headed of on a mini-beast hunt. Our Guide was fantastic he was able to show us the best places to look, we found spiders, worms, slugs and even a frog! our next task was on the farm trail we answered lots of questions and found out lots of information about the animals as we took in our surroundings; after exploring the farm it was our turn to 'hug a bunny', Koalas voted this their favourite activity; phew finally lunchtime where we got to rest and re-fuel before we went to look around the farm and spend time on the bouncy pillow and play area before heading back to school check out the photo's below to see the fun we had!

Fie, Fi, Fo, Fum we have some estimating to be done!
This week In Koalas we have been looking at the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' through the story we have been learning about estimation - 'a sensible guess' as part of our maths lesson, estimating how many beans would fit in the Giants hand or estimating how many bears in a container.
We have also been developing our knowledge on how to care for living things, this has been developed through learning about beanstalks by planting our beans and giving them water and sun light.
Fie, FI, FO, Fum there is some measuring to be done!
Koalas have planted beans to grow their own beanstalks just like in the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Over half term we are looking to see how our beans grow, needing water and sunlight. Can you help your child measure their bean stalks and record their bean growing?
We look forward to finding out which bean grew the tallest! will share our results the week beginning 11th June 2018.
To celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry Koala Class have been decorating cupcakes, designing wedding dresses and making Union Jack flags.
We even had our photograph taken with the happy couple!
Next week we are learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be learning how to estimate and form strategies to check the answers.
In literacy we will be labelling a beanstalk.
Show and tell on Wednesday 23rd May is 'something green'.
Our topic book next week is 'Whatever Next'. In the story the bear uses his imagination to as he pretends to fly to the moon in a cardboard box. So have a chat with your child about where they might go if they could travel anywhere in the world, galaxy or beyond! We will use the ideas in our creative writing next week.
Show and tell on Wednesday 2nd May is: bring in a photo of yourself on holiday to talk about.
Yesterday we enjoyed our first swimming lesson. Next week you will need to bring the whole kit including a hat in order to swim as we do not have the spares any longer.
Show and tell tomorrow is: Bring an alien picture/model you have made.
Thanks for coming to the Easter assembly. I am sure you will agree the children did really well! We are really proud of them!
We will be learning about space.
Show and tell on Wednesday 18th April is: Something linked to our space topic.
