We are so happy to have a full classroom again and are so impressed with how the new seahorses have settled in with our new routines.
We really enjoyed our first "trip" to Catherington Lith and we were very good at spotting physical and man made landmarks that help us know where we are. From the Lith we were able to look across the village of Clanfield to Windmill Hill on one side and right across the City of Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight on the other. We spotted and recognised Charlton windmill, the River Solent, Portsdown Hill and the Spinnaker Tower. Along the walk we recognised our local landmarks - our school, the Tudor Cottages, Catherington pond, the Catherington Wheel sign and All Saints church.
This week in maths we have been ordering and comparing numbers up to 100 as well as learning how to use the greater than and less than symbols. We were able to help Chomp the Crocodile order sequential and non sequential numbers from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest.
This week we started to explore and discover the different animals and minibeasts we have living in and around our school. We have started to think about why we found them where we did - in their habitats, and what there habitats have to help them survive. We were very excited to find evidence of claw marks under our fence which led us to think that foxes also come into our school. We will be investigating whether or not we will see these animal all year round and what impact humans and the seasons have on their habitats.
