This term the LC1 have been learning about measure. We have been estimating and using different objects to measure. We have also done a mini topic about the three little pigs. We had great fun building houses from different materials and blowing them down with the hair dryer!
The LC Team have put together a Powerpoint and virtual tour video to share some information about the classes. See them below.
The LC have been enjoying outdoor learning this term. We have been on trips to the park to develop our social skills. We enjoyed the leaf rubbing trail at St Marks Park and learning the names of different trees. We are looking forward to seeing our potatoes that we planted grow in the playground.
We are very sad that James and Elisha will not be joining us next term. James is going to a new school and Elisha is moving on to high school. We will miss them both very much and know that they will miss their friends at Broughton too. James and Elisha came to say goodbye to the adults and are excited about this new chapter in their lives. We wish them lots of good luck!
The LC went to Frankie and Benny’s at Ocean Terminal for breakfast with our families. We got the bus and had a look at the Christmas lights in Ocean Terminal. We ordered our own food and drinks and had lots of nice things to talk about. It was a lovely ending to a good term.
The LC1 and Paul from the LC2 have been reading the story The Gruffalo. We read the story, made some puppets and did some letter writing. We learned the Gruffalo song and made some actions to go with it. We enjoyed teaching the song and dance to the boys and girls in the nursery.
We have had a great start to our new year in the LC1. We would like to welcome Ellis, Tyler and Kelvin to our class. We have been learning about measure, reading different stories and have been visiting The Yard. We have been learning how to count forwards and backwards and order and sequence numbers. Have a look at some of our photos to see our great work and what we have been up to.
The LC1 and LC2 had a picnic to celebrate the end of term and a good year. We made lots of our own snacks to share with our families and had fun playing together at Pilrig Park.
The LC ran a healthy café during Health Week for our families. We grew our own cress and made bread to make sandwiches and rolls. We also made flapjacks, smoothies and fruit salad. We helped to set up, serve and count money for the till.

This week is anti-bullying week so we have been learning about what it means to be a good friend. We have read some stories about friendship in class.

We have been trying hard to make sure that we are kind and have been learning what to do if someone is being unkind to us.

Every Wednesday we go to The Yard. We always have a lot of fun at The Yard and enjoy playing and learning with all of the different things there. We like to ride on the bikes, climb, dress up and play in the sensory room and soft play. Here are some photos from our recent trips.
