We enjoyed listening to the biography of Amelia Earhart from the Little People Big Dreams series. When she was a little girl, her dream was to fly and we were inspired by her life story of becoming the first female pilot. She set a new female world record for flying up to 14,000 feet and also flew across two oceans – the Atlantic and the Pacific.

In mathematics, we have been looking at building numbers beyond ten and exploring teen numbers. We especially looked at the numbers 11, 12, 13 and 14 representing them on tens frames with counters and comparing Numicon shapes. On Tuesday, we had fun measuring ingredients on the digital scales for our ‘Sunshine Flapjacks’ – yum!

We especially enjoyed Henry’s sky themed ‘Show and Tell’ this week. He explained how clouds were formed and what happens when a plane passes through the clouds with some fabulous photos! Thank you, Henry!

We have been busy creating too, making our very own parachutes! We used our fine motor skills to use a single hole punch to form the holes needed to form a canopy. We concentrated fully to thread the string to form the parachute. We have enjoyed playing in our role play Heathrow Airport, checking in and spotting the sights of London.

Next week we will be thinking about our new topic ‘Mindfulness and Water’ but of course also look forward to celebrating the coronation of King Charles III! Have a lovely bank holiday weekend!
