Our Timetable

Shared Text – Leo the Littlest Seahorse

Today, we again read the book “Leo the Littlest Seahorse” and discussed camouflage.

Rocket Writing

Rocket writing helps us to build stamina in our writing. During this time, R1MR focussed on finishing their stories with a ‘Sizzling Start” that we started yesterday.

RHA focused on the letter ‘a’ and the sound that it makes. We practiced the correct formation of this letter and words that we already know that have the ‘a’ sound in it.


Art – Camouflage Activity / Play Investigations

This week we have been exploring the idea of camouflage with the help of our shared text.


Elnathan – You blend in with some colour so you blend in to hide from predators

Alexa – it’s if someone is trying to find you and eat you they cant find you because you are blending in.

Adum – When you are next to something and you turn that colour.

Abraham – camouflage helps other animals to survive

There are all sorts of animals that use camouflage to keep safe.
