MiniBeasts…

We were so excited today when we found a worm on our playground. We looked at the worm closely and talked about what we could see. Then we talked about how, to care for the worm, we needed to put it in soil. After carefully placing the worm in the garden we watched it slowly ‘tunnel’ it’s way into the soil.

Toy Pictogram.

When we arrived at school we found a letter from Santa. He had written to tell us that the most popular toy this year, for class 1, was a teddy bear. We decided we would find out if he was right. First, we looked at a range of toys we had for Christmas. Then we voted for our favourite toy. We used the results to make a pictogram. This showed our findings.
