The children will be covering a variety of short themes this half term as Christmas takes up a few days too!
The children in the Butterfly Class are learning about castles and 'Once Upon a Time' stories. They have looked at a variety of books including Jack and the Beanstalk, the Kiss that missed and the Worst Princess, in addition to non-fiction books about castles.
This week the children had a 'medieval banquet' at lunch time which included wearing the crowns they made the day before, turning the lights off and only using small (battery) candles....this led to a discussion about electricity/batteries too. They had a real crackling fire in the grate (on the Interactive white board) and listened to medieval music (somebody said 'this is beautiful music'). In the afternoon the class learnt medieval style dancing. A successful day! There are MORE photographs to follow but bear with me as the internet has been playing up this week.
More photographs of what we have been doing in the Butterfly class!

WC 18.5.20 Adding: please note the video was resized so hope it works!
The beginning was saying we can use different ways to add. Try bigger numbers at home using some of these methods..The end of the video said put the largest number in your head and count on 5! It then said you may need to make a number line and get grown up to check you have not missed any numbers out before using it...
