 Rabbits Class News

Welcome to Rabbits! We are in Key Stage 1. We are between 4 and 6 years old. We follow a play-based curriculum and have lots of fun.

Spring Term 2017

     Exploring Materials

In science we have been exploring the properties of lots of different materials. We investigated to see whether we could fold, scrunch, tear, wet and see through the different materials. Some of us suggested what we could use the materials for and others identified whether they liked or disliked the feel of them.

When I was one.....     

We have enjoyed singing the rhyme "When I was one....." We looked at photo's of children at different ages and made our own books about what we did when we were younger. We tried hard to match baby photo's to the children in the class. We enjoyed dressing up like the pirates from the rhyme and exploring pirate themed resources.


 In P.E we have been exploring a range of different equipment and exploring how we can travel across it.  This includes steps, benches, wedges, glide boards. We have moved rhythmically to music and linked actions together.
