Rabbits get all mixed up!


What we have been learning this week

Well, another creative week for Rabbit Class, and we have really enjoyed the story of “The Mixed up Chameleon”, which we used to think about what each animal is good at and what we are good at.

We have designed our own mixed up creatures and we have to say you are all very creative!  There was also some amazing labelling!


You have also been very busy practising passing balls to each other – we started with rolling but you quickly progressed to throwing and catching, improving all the time!  Well done Rabbits – everyone, keep up the practising!


We really enjoyed the work of this week’s artist, Kandinsky.  We used lots of skills to make our own version. We only had red, yellow and blue paint and had to use our mixing skills to make any other colour that we wanted.  Lots of fun and good for our hands too…! Watch out for a large masterpiece on display soon.


What we shall be working on next week

Next week will see us finding out all about how and why people celebrate Chinese New Year. There are special colours used in the celebrations for us to learn about, along with dances, writing numbers, and ordinal numbers. We will, of course, be relating our phonics to this by learning “ch” and “ear”.

How you can help with home learning

Remember to learn your word-cards off by heart, and keep discussing ordinal numbers in your daily lives or in games you play.  (This means using the words first, second, third, fourth, etc.)  Keep practising your throwing and catching too.

General information

Next week’s Show & Tell will be for Rectangles on Friday, 9 February. 

Finally, I would like to thank Mrs Franklin for the fantastic job she does as librarian on a Wednesday.  (Please note that, as per Mrs Morris’ newsletter this week, this is the day that Rabbit Class children have the opportunity to change their library book.)  Please could I ask parents to write the title of the library book in their child’s reading diary when they read it with their child. Thank you.
