Week 5

Supertato, Evil Pea and the Veggies

I can't believe that we are in Week 5 already! This week it's been nice to have a Monday again as due to bank holidays we have missed out on Forest School and PE although the children seem very confused by the number of days in a  normal week with some children suggesting we had reached Friday on Wednesday!


Super writing

This week we have been continuing our work on Supertato. The children have loved coming up with their own sentences to describe both Evil pea and our hero Supertato! The children have written their own sentences on whiteboards, have worked with me to create sentences and even come up with their own ideas in the writing area.

Magical Forest School

This week we had a truly magical time in Forest School as we each had our own magical wands to make wishes and spells. Some children wished for invisibility - let me warn you, so they could sneak up in their parents! There were also wishes for rainbow Lamborghinis, pianos and being able to fly.

Terrific throwing

This week we went back to a much colder part of the year and imagined the snow. We pretended to be snowman and sledge down a hill before trying our hand at throwing snowballs (bean bags) Everyone had great fun at throwing over, under and through the various targets.

Growing Veggies!

This week we have been finding out all about what plants need to grow and we have planted our own vegetables inside the classroom in puts and outside in our new vegetable patch.

Funky Fingers

This week we have been working on our fine motor skills with lots of different activities including picking up peas with tweezers, making sticker patterns, threading, plasticine and painting in the sand.

Also this week...

We have had fun making Mr Potato heads, painted bunting for the PTA, made amazing car tracks, patterns and played outside in the sunshine.

A couple of reminders

Forest school  - children need to wear leggings or jogging bottoms to protect their legs in Forest School and bring a cardigan/jumper to cover their arms. Forest school is much cooler due to the tree cover so they won't get too hot.


Children are welcome to bring hats but we ask that sunglasses stay at home.


Have a wonderful weekend - lets hope the sun keeps his hat on!

Mrs Rudkin and the terrific RR Team.
