We have continued to practise our counting, we have counted ducks in a pond, conkers in jars and teddies in cups! We also used drumsticks to explore the different sounds we could make outdoors. With Jacob in PE, we practised throwing and catching using a tennis ball which needed lots of concentration! Well done for being such brilliant butterflies again this week! 

WC 4th October 

In Butterflies this week, we have learnt all about Autumn and we have explored the colours we see. We have painted pine cones and conkers, and we have printed using leaves to create different patterns. We have also practised our counting by feeding conkers to the squirrels! We have been on a listening walk outside, we had to listen really quietly and talk about the sounds together that we could hear. We have also made lots of marks and drawn pictures all about our story Rosie’s walk. Have a look at all our amazing learning below, Absolutely brilliant butterflies!

Did you know our butterflies are brilliant builders? We were learning how to share, plan and negotiate this afternoon - phew! Butterflies is such a busy place!

Today we visited the library for the first time! We chose a book ourselves to take home and share with our grown ups! Then we listened to a story called 'My Cat likes to hide in boxes'. Our library day will be on a Thursday every week - don't forget to bring it so it can be changed. smiley

Another wonderful week of learning this week. We have really enjoyed the lovely weather and have been learning how to share our toys outside smiley
