A big Jubilee welcome to all of our new English Lions. Everyone has been settling in so well to school life, joining in with all of the fun activities that support our learning, both indoors as well as in our outdoor area.
This term our topic has been ‘Ourselves’, and we have all learnt a little bit more about ourselves and each other.
We have had a doctor’s surgery set up in English Lions. We have enjoyed looking after each other, using thermometers, bandages and medicine. We read ‘Funny Bones’ and discussed our bodies and bones. We set up an x-ray clinic and bandaged up any broken bones.
English Lions love reading, reading, and more reading! Whether it is as a whole class, small groups, independently, inside or outside, we love looking at books. We read stories to each other, and talk about the pictures we see. We love to use our book corner and choose our favourite stories to share with each other.
A very special visit
We have been talking about our favourite animals, so Mrs Barlow very kindly brought in her favourite animal to show the children, Queenie the tortoise! We loved talking about how to look after her, what she eats and where she lives. We stroked her shell and talked about how she feels. We described her as bumpy, hard and cold.
