Outdoor Learning

Indian food!

To link in with our PE, we were very lucky in 3 Laurel to have two of our classmates Mums in to talk to us about Divali and to let us try some Indian food. It was delicious!        

Dictionary skills

We have been finding the definitions of words that we are concentrating on this week in our spelling. We are investigating the words in which ‘ch’ makes the ‘sh’ sound. We thought of words and looked up their meaning using our alphabetical skills.  

Tag Rugby

The class started tag rugby this week and really enjoyed learning how to hold and throw the ball.
