English - Brown Bear Brown Bear





Picture 1


The children have been reading ‘Brown Bear Brown Bear’. A bear appeared in their classroom and they had to answer questions what and why questions! They listened attentively to their friends in their class and responded with relevant answers. Here are some of the answers the children gave.


What is the bear called?


“Teddy Bear!” – Daisy

“Flower” – Sapphire

“Rubber!” – Ruby


Why is the bear here?


“He wants to see us!” – Andrew

“He wants to come and play in Yellow class!” – Charlie

“Teddy has a present for us!” - Kenny


The bear left us some words that we could read. They were I, see, and a. We worked with our learning partner to make up sentences about what we could see and wrote about this in our book.

Maths Learning - Number and Shape, Space and Measure

In Maths the children have been learning to count and read numbers through a range of fun and exciting activities! Some include children finding numbers in the messy area.


We will also be exploring 2D shapes and using some new maths

vocabulary to describe them. The children will be learning the name of the shape and begin to describe the properties.


Children will have the opportunity to find shapes in the environment and sing some great songs about shapes. The children will be finding out about who is the tallest and shortest in the class. I wonder who is the tallest in their class?

Oh No George!

The children have been reading the text ‘Oh No George!’ by Chris Haughton. The children came into their classrooms on Monday and noticed that it was a MESS! They found clues from the class teddies who had a picture of who made the mess. The children looked at the picture and explained they thought George was a…

  • Dog
  • Horse
  • Cat


We used Philosophy for Children (P4C) to discuss the question ‘Is it ok to leave a mess?’.
